    Spent about an hr taking pics early this morning, and this was the best one. Lots of PP here, darkening the pavement, blurring the background more, and cloning out a tall tree top. Could you tell if I hadn't said anything?

    Thanks Randy! I used the handed down to my son's D70+"his" Sigma 28-70 2.8.

    Thanks Sabina!

    Thanks Anthony! Amazing what you can get if you take 100 shots!

    Thanks Chris, but that's actually the name of the color; Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic. Now this is the perfect sunset:

  7. Ya cudda fooled me! The first shot looked as if you had a beautiful sunset at your back. That's a beautiful color, for sure.

    Sunset, sunrise, hard to tell

    I'm not sure if anyone can tell if a particular shot was done at sunset or sunrise. In looking at the exif on this one, I see it was taken at 7:22am. Thanks again for the kind words!
  9. I made my living shooting landscape photoraphy for 27 years (long ago retired from that) and have typically found the colors of the subject much warmer at sunset, and even at sunrise. It's not really all that hard to spot.
