photoblog image Thanksgiving Sunset I

Thanksgiving Sunset I


After returning from Boston (don't worry - boston photos will follow over the next few days I'm sure!) I went north to my cottage on Georgian  Bay for one last weekend before we close it down for the winter. We were invited for Thanksgiving Dinner (which in Canada was this past weekend) at friends of my father and stepmother.  I took this shot of the sunset from their deck. Tomorrow I am posting another shot taken at the same time of the same sunset but with different composition. Let me know which you like more.

This was shot in RAW (.orf) format and processed for accurate white balance, contrast, and sharpness in the raw development phase. I then did a quick 16 bit curves tweak in photoshop.

See a map of where this was taken.

Once again I love how you capture the water. The silhouette feel compliments the your "one last weekend before we close it down for the winter" comment. Truthfully... I don't know a LOT about RAW files, but the more I look at pictures taken with that format, the more I find room for experimentation. Here I see a almost water painting touch to the shot. Very well taken and worked on smile

Now, that is something to give thanks for! Very dramtic. I love the deep orange color and the reflection in the water.
