Topic: Bavarian Sunset

I posted this photo in Off Topic, I used the 24mm Canon EF lense on a Canon crop camera. So it has nothing to do with MF ...

But the sunset was very unusual, this image is just out of the box, no Photoshop art.

Wow! What a beautiful sky, we get some strange skies in the summer that are orange streaks and are usually followed by storms.
We are near the mountains and sea so get a good mixture of weather but no snow

Yes , the sky is splendid , but the dark foreground , in my opinion , is too present .
I would not hesitate to cut it horizontally between the door and the window of the left house .

I am a Pentacon and kiev( MF and35 mm) user,and also :contaxII,III,IIa  ,contaflex , contarex bullseye ,voigtlander ....

I agree about there being too much of the buildings. However, the coloured reflections do add to the composition.

Re: Bavarian Sunset

Well Hanoi you've shown.... always have a camera with you.
I don't know about the rest of the world but the countries I've been to in Europe you can't plan for a lovely sunset and annoyingly happens at the wrong time (well for me) to include a great scenic view.

At the end of the day, you have to shoot the sunset at the end of the day! big_smile

It's surprising what just one missing word makes smile

Re: Bavarian Sunset

Thank you, guys. I truly appreciate your comments.

I hope this cut matches your expectation. You are right, too much dark foreground, too many trees (something my wife is always shouting me about)  makes the image somehow nervy.

First I thought I could brighten up the shadows a bit, but then the atmosphere was gone. So I let it as it was.

Re: Bavarian Sunset

I like it better : I like  the shining roofs on the right side of your picture . I like also the thin branches stretched out to the sky .
This is a good image !
