    Very nice
    Beautiful color
  3. Nice colorful sunsets we've had lately, but at a price. I'm glad the fires are pretty well out now. Nice captures. Thanks for sharing them.

    Nice, though I would like to breath and not have brown skies going to work in the morning.
    Is that 215 going through the bottom center of the first pic?

    Beautiful shots. Did you do anything special to get the sun so well defined in 2, 3, and 4, or was that a function of the camera or the effect of the smoke? I don't think I could have gotten it that defined with my D200.

    Amazing how a destructive fire can help achieve such beauty. Nice shots.

    Very nice. I live in Northern New Mexico, and we are seeing some evidence of the smoke even out here.
  8. Thanks, they're from the hills just between Parley's and Millcreek canyons. I believe it's technically I-80 in the photo:wink:
  9. I didn't do anything special, this is my first time shooting the sunset so I think I just got lucky. I spot metered off right next to the sun though. As such the blues above were very underexposed. Most of the look and color comes from a levels adjustment of the blues with NX. I think the smog was mostly responsible though.
  10. Nicely done. Smoke actually makes a wonderful filter for the sun.
