Tennessee Sunset

Hey everyone,

I've posted a couple times in here, figured I should share something as well. This is a photo I took a few years ago at the lake by my house at sunset. Some light cropping, saturation, and curves were applied, but the colors are very true to life.

Re: Tennessee Sunset

Hi!! Nice meeting you!! This is a time when I wish we could post larger images here....This scene is gorgeous!! Are you going to try to paint it? One tiny comment, it is usually recommended not to put the horizon dead center, but rather on the 1/3 area, either high or low. But sometimes it makes it hard to decide if you want to crop anything out. You said you did some cropping, can you crop a little differently without losing what we see here and get the horizon a little less centered?

Re: Tennessee Sunset

Beautiful photo! It brings to mind some sunrises I've seen over a local wetlands; quite similar to one photo I took except yours is much better.

Re: Tennessee Sunset

Thank you Natalie and Dave! The horizon is closer to center than the 1/3 line because I wanted to keep as much of the sky as well as the vegetation in frame as possible. Cropping so the horizon was at the 1/3 I would lose some of each, depending on which way I went, and I thought they were both interesting enough to keep.

Great photo, I wonder if it's as warm as it looks.

Re: Tennessee Sunset

I think you could safely shave a little off of the top OR the bottom to throw off the horizon being in the middle. I like the natural dark vignette that you have in this composition. Very soothing. Love the billowing clouds.
