Guess you could get 100+ different views on this one, for me the sun is the focus of the shot and my eye focuses on it and detracts from the beautiful sky.

Cheers

I agree 4xxxx, I was looking at it and realised you don't have to have the sun in a shot of the sunset! The colours are cool without it.

Good work Richard, as I said "Guess you could get 100+ different views on this one", it does wonders for the ego. I have 23 shots posted in our local paper and some of my festival and marathon shots posted on the papers web site of the events. None would win any comps but as I said it does wonders for my ego.


Cheers.

Yeah the old ego is swelling a little at the moment.

I've had another go at, again in the sunset, again the sun overwhelming the shot. I'm guessing there is some kind of filter that could maybe take care of that? Or maybe not? I'm here to learn, so tell me?

Some technical detail, both shots are ISO100, f/3.7 and as it is HDR there are 3 exposure times 1/250, 1/500 and 1/1000. It's a superzoom, so that's all the tech detail I have.

It's always going to be difficult shooting into the sun, I can only suggest ND filters, perhaps others with experience with filters can give you some tips.


Cheers
