What a difference a few minutes and a few stops make!

  1. Went out for a sunday morning drive with my wife to look at the sunrises.

    Interesting how a change in lens, camera settings, and a few minutes of light can drastically alter the mood of an image.

    Taken with the 17-55 on a tripod:


    A few minutes later with a 70-200 vr and a CP ( forgot I had it on ) and stopped down some more in Aperture Priority - then I got a completely different kind of image. I kind of like this one best though:


    Thanks for looking!
  2. I like the first one better. It's a softer light and more unique in my opinion, but then again I'm a sucker for purple. :)
  3. I like both but give the nod to #1. I like the soft pastels of color and the forground stick adds a little something.
  4. I really them both.... well done.
  5. Thanks Vern. Generally I like the softer light pastels but I still gravitate towards the darker second. It smacks more of "good morning world" for me.

    Thanks Matt I shot that same stick and view many times previously. Fall sunrises are particularly beautiful from that angle.
  6. Sandi you have to be a little more definitive! You really ......them both. Like? Hate? :smile: :smile:

    I just figured out the "well done" must mean you liked them? Hope spring is coming in like a lion to you folks in southern Ontario.

    both are so nice, I sure wish they were my images !!
  8. The second one is cool with the silhouetted birds, and simple blocked-up areas.
  9. Thanks very much for your comments.
  10. #1 works best for me, both are good.
  11. Thanks very much for your feedback Raul.

    Beautiful and amazing colors. I have the same experience when the sun goes down over the sea the light changes within very few minutes.
