    The fires in Utah keep burning.

    p488826721-5.

    What settings would make for a better photo?
     
  2. You have captured this well. If you went out in late evening and set up your tripod and then shot for the building then waited until dark and shot for the fire, then combined them in PS it would give you a different look. I do like it as you have shot it, quite dramatic. If you want you could try to pull up a little detail in the dark area with D Lighting in NC or Shadow/Highlight in PS.

    Steve I like it...is this the one by Nephi? I thought about driving down that way on Saturday to get some pics, but didn't get the chance to.

    This is the fire that is still burning on the Stansbury range by Grantsville. Thanks for the comments. It was amazing how fast it moves....

    How much saturation did you add to the image.

    We are about 10 miles away to the East. This is close to I-80

    It does. I dont know what the camera adjusts for in its processing, but these photos are untouched. Our view was pretty much as the photos show. It was neat to watch, but the devastation was quick and sure. Flash floods followed this week with all the vegitations burned away. Nature working its system I suppose.
     
  13. I hear ya, the more we seem to interfere the worse it seems to end up in the long run...
