Sky Fire

Fire by slitherjef
Fire, a photo by slitherjef on Flickr.

The photo here is the result of some experimenting and a couple new techniques.

I had stepped out my front door this evening and seen a pretty sunset starting. Too bad my foreground was mostly blocked and littered by houses cars and other stuff you would find in a suburban neighborhood. Not really photogenic.

At first I thought about letting the great looking sky go with out getting any shots but decided to grab my nearest camera, a Canon G12 and took some shots. While the shots I got in the camera looked pretty good, once they where loaded up on my PC I thought I was just going to keep them to my self, but after a little bit of experimenting I came up with this photo.

Just an FYI, this is NOT a reflection shot… This photo was done by mirroring the image vertically and doing some cropping.

Earth Day Sunset

Not quite sure what to think of this photo. On one hand, I really like the colors, though I my have pushed things a bit hard, as you can tell by the glow around the trees, speaking of which, don’t look quite as sharp as I had wanted, but could be due to wind. But the major factor I don’t like here are the three stay objects… two light posts and a sign.

But, the fact I did get out and get something photographed is good, even if it was another shot I took while on break at work.

Not much of a sunset tonight, but at least I gave it a try
