I was shooting a sunset on a beach in Cape Cod and there other photographers out there with me and they were all there to get the shots up to the sun on the horizon. Then I guess they thought the light show was over because by the time I took the second picture in this sequence, everyone else had left. They missed out because your camera’s sensor can pick up plenty of light after the sun has set. You will first have a golden hour and then a blue hour. The second two shots show the early and late stages of the golden hour. The cold wind made me give up before the blue hour.
Your assignment should you choose to accept it:
Post a sunset image where you waited for the best light.

Notice the clouds near the sun, it looks like a bird flying out of the sun.

The tide goes out pretty far. We were able to walk out about a mile on a sea wall till we hit a strip of land with 2 lighthouses.
I’m testing out some new image layouts with some of my recent Cape Cod images. I made them with Lightroom 4. What do you think?
This was an HDR image I took after hurricane Irene. Black Point, Narragansett RI.
I took this shot the other day in Salem, Ma. I believe the ships name is “Friendship of Salem”. Here are a few versions I made of this shot. Please comment and let me know which one you like best, if you like it at all. BTW none of these look like the originals.
