I like the idea of the setting sun not being central
Nice image, good composition and great sky.
Lovely tones and light, excellent capture of the clouds!
Very subtle and not OTT which makes a highly relaxing image Susie.
Shame that on the large version (which is gorgeous) the sharpening(?) has caused such a distinct line along the top of the hills. You could blur it out I suppose but you can easily see past that and appreciate the beautiful scene.
Fine shot Susie.
Thank you Jouko, Sheena, Allan and Gill for dropping by - very much appreciate your kind feedback ...
Hi there Richard - grateful for you taking the time to view and provide your valued impressions, thank you! Will revisit the shot and see if I can achieve a better result. Thank you once again ...
what a beatiful scene. Really love the colours and subtleness of the lighting. totally exquisite.. like silk on the skin.
superb shot and such a lovely scene!
very muted and silvery tones for a sunset Susie - but it has a very distinct appeal to it
Lovely calm, subtle, understated image in the smaller shot but the horizon halo on the large version spoils it a bit.
Whatever you have done to that sky is fantastic, well done.
A little advice on the sharpening and halos that people have mentioned. What looks right in photoshop and the like, and even in print, is messed up slightly when it goes through servers on most websites. It's not your fault, it's theirs. Something about the way it's compressed. It's best to only upload unsharpened pics to compensate this.
Give it a go anyway, it can't hurt.
great atmospheric n this image ...love it!
A beautifully simple and restful shot. Would love to be there
Beautiful Susie, beautiful
Thank you Phil, Thomas, Maggie, Rob, Mark, Ollie, Hawk and David for your valued feedback - always appreciated ...
This is where you need a very strong ND grad filter, or perhaps two. Here, I'd use a ND grad 0.9 + a 0.3 together, where the bottom of the darker section would be right where the water's horizon is. Then the foreground would have more details.
Also, I spend a lot of time in PhotoShop. I work on each part seperately. I will select each part and adjust the brightness and sharpness accordingly. I am very careful about sharpening edges and the sky. I rarely sharpen the sky. I spend about 30 minutes to 1 hour on each one.
And I shoot in RAW format. It is easier to get details out of the shadows in RAW.
Appreciate you taking the time to provide such thoughtful advice, Patrick ... thanks so much!
Glad to be number 30 on this lovely tranquil shot...
