I'd like to. But I can't submit prints. Whenever I try to they won't submit. . . Very frustrating.

Trust me, this is meant as a compliment-this looks like a painting. The waves are seemingly 3-D and the sunset can't be real! ;) the way the rays shoot upward is amazing! Hmmm to look at this or one of your nudes-which is more satisfying...hmmm... :)

I think the water here came out really well; not so sure about the sun.

I like how the water turns out with this camera better I think. It's much more clear and defined.

I think I agree with you. . . But the sun itself comes out better on film I think.

I think both of these things are a result of a different metering type and/or system. The sun looks better on film because it's not as over-exposed. Which is the same reason the water looks better here.

Try either merging two or three bracketed images together, or changing the metering/manually set the exposure.

That sounds right. . . I should experiment with that. Thanks Sean.

Here's my advanced critique: why can't _I_ shoot sunsets like this?! Just shoot me now. :D

Seriously, this series is truly spectacular; I think this one may be the best you've posted so far, though. I think the only objection one could raise with this photo (and I'm not raising it, just pointing it out) is that the gradation of light from the point surrounding the sun to the point where it changes to a reddish hue is very abrupt, with no detail of clouds within the "yellow zone" and quite a lot outside it. I've noticed that digital photos sometimes do a poor job of capturing the gradation of light across the sky like this, or even if it's just shades of blue on a clear day. Perhaps using a higher resolution with a longer exposure might help? Are you using a filter? If not, perhaps one might help. I'm not sure what the cause is, but I know it is fairly common on LCD flatpanel displays, too. Regardless, this particular photo really looks wonderful. :omfg:

By the way, what camera do you use? My current camera, a Canon G2, is fried and thought about getting something with more capabilities (and pixels).

Thanks so much. . . I'm using a Nikon D2Xs here. . . Until very recently I've used a Nikon F80 film camera. . . That light gradation around the sun bugs me too. It used to work much better on film. . . I wasn't using a filter. . . Thanks for the suggestions.

Very g;ad they please. . . I'm still not too sure about the digital look with some of these.

Why?

wildplaces Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2006
The sun itself - and the light just around it. . . Seems to work much better on film.
