Beach at Sunset



A boat is put to rest for the evening. Waiting for a new day but enjoying the last rays of the warm sun.

Exceptional sunset

Behind The Lens

Location
Ban Makham Beach, Koh Samui Thailand
Time
Around 6:45 pm
Lighting
No lighting was used otherwise then natural light
Equipment
Nikon D200 Dslr, Nikkor 16mm fish-eye, Tripod
Inspiration
The inspiration came by the clouds. It looked like the phenix was risen. The boat on the foreground was a nice extra to put something to balance it out.
Editing
This is an HDR photo made out of 9 shots. Processed in Photomatix 3 and then lightroom and Photoshop was use to give it a bit of umpf.
In my camera bag
D200 Dslr, Nikkor 16 mm fish eye, Nikkor macro 60mm and the kit lens Nikon 18-70mm
Feedback
Always have a look out to the tones in the sky and foreground. Look for the details and what can be used for HDR. But be careful with the sliders. The less HDR look it has the better the picture becomes. Go out scouting for some nice spots. Take a compass and remember the times of rise and set of the sun. Learn to read the sky. The more high clouds there are the more red it will be. But 1 cloud on the horizon can ruin the picture. A bit of luck you need.
