Sunset from Hay Bluff

By jond
I was going to call it - Sun going down on Lord Hereford's Knob (yes that really is the name of the hill in the background) - but I thought I'd probably have to put it in the adult section!

This is a montage of two shots. Even with a couple of grey grads there was too big a contrast between the land and sky. So I exposed one shot for each and combined them in Photoshop.

Love the colour except for the road,maybe a bit of history brush to bring it back.

Agree with Kim that the road colour detracts from what is otherwise a stunning picture.

I know what you mean about exposure control. Slide film is so much more sensitive than that new-fangled digital stuff. I uploaded a shot yesterday in which I had to blend 3 different exposures, even with a 2 stop ND grad! Thank goodness for bracketing:-]

Great shot you've captured here.

Another beautiful shot Jon. I like the way the road disects the picture, the colours and the whole composition of the shot.

Amazing colours - just beautiful.
