Spurn Head Sunset

By VintageRed
This one required a little more post processing to bring back the f.g. but I think it just squeaked through. Does anyone have advice on taking well exposed sunsets? - is it a case of using the ND grads again? All comments welcome.

This is excellent, doesn't look like you need much advise.
I always use a ND Grad for my sunset/sunrise shots. Usually a cokin 121s, sometimes I stack it with another 121 but that does create a tint that is not to everyone's liking.

Thanks Alan - helpful advice. I'm trying to get it right more of the time before the processing stage if I can. Nick.

If you are shooting with a tripod, then you can make one exposure for the sky and one for the foreground. Then blend them together in photoshop. This way you can make the exposure transition follow the skyline more accurately.

I like the colours in the sky and the foreground texture, but to me it lacks a focal point.
Yes, I would still use ND grads. I think it's best to get it as right a possible in the camera. Others will disagree of course...

Superb shot Nick,the detail in the F.g is spot on.Yes a 121s would have made a stronger sky but that is being picky , this is the best of your east coast series so far.
