Sunset

Up at Nathan and Sarah's for the pumpkin party the other night, I took this picture:



Couldn't get the horse to keep his head up; he was too busy eating. And actually, the picture that I took was this one:



Took a little while with the clone brush to get rid of the power lines, but I think it was worth it. You can still see them if you know where to look, but that's about te best I can do...

What a change! Removing the power lines opened the sky line beautifully. I noticed the horse was in the lower third of the picture and the sunset moves the eye to the upper third with the post connecting the two. I overheard a photographer at a farmers market describing to a customer how she took photos by placing objects within thirds on the screen rather than centered or by halves.

Yeah, the "Rule of Thirds" - a lot of cameras actually have grid lines on them that help you frame your picture like that. You could probably turn yours on in the menu area, but I find they're a distraction...

Wow! Beautiful pink- must have taken you a while to doctor this photo. I love sunsets, and sunrises. Best time of the day.
