    That more than just works. That's spectacular. The color patterns alone would be great, but the tree makes it special.

    Rumor has it that sleep is defined as follows:

    "A condition of body and mind such as that which typically recurs for several hours every night, in which the nervous system is relatively inactive, the eyes closed, the postural muscles relaxed, and consciousness practically suspended."

    Nikon Cafe translation:

    "A condition of photographer and equipment that prevents, prohibits, or otherwise makes it physically and technologically impossible to create and/or capture art. Typically caused by a lack of rechargeable physical energy, compromized time by other humans, and/or the inability by the photographer to access/operate said equipment for physical state/orientation/location reasons."

  10. Beautiful dramatic sky colors Jim. Simply great catch.

    Cory, good translation of sleep definition :D

    Now that is "SUPERB" jIM.

    You found the perfect location, comosition and timing perfect.

    Excellent colors that evening. That is the way a sunset should be captured. Not the blown out sun like I see so often

    Skies are very dramatic and change by the moment...

    MONEY SHOT JIM :>)))))

    Thanks for the nice comments....:)

    I kept looking up from the camera and admiring how awsomely, beautifully perfect this display of evening was and kept my fingers crossed that I was gonna to be able to capture it as it truly appeared...and fortunately, I was able to :)

    that was the info I was looking for. Very nice. I love sunsets and you seem to capture them better than any I have ever done or seen.

    Hi Patrick...

    The trick is to hold the red channel without blowing it and at the same time, not underexposing the image so much that you induce noise in the shadow areas.

    It takes a bit of chimping and metering off of the correct portion of the scene...I always try to hold as much detail in the cloud patterns as possible and let the rest end up as it may.
     
  18. All I can say: "superb".

    Thanks for sharing.
