Whytecliff Sunset
Lens: DA15 Camera: K-x Photo Location: Whytecliff Park ISO: 100 Aperture: F11 
Posted By: jaieger, 01-07-2011, 12:20 AM

So a friend and I drove up to Whytecliff Park on a whim just as it was nearing sunset. If the GPS had its way, we would've missed it too - it tried to get us to drive to Squamish, a good ~40km further. Thank god for U-turn routes. Here's what the GPS didn't want us to see:













Thanks for looking

These look very dark on my calibrated monitor. Must be the way they were posted. Try checking after you post to see if the pictures came out properly.

Very nice shots.

I love the 1st and last shots in particular.

I feel that the 1st shot could almost be cropped with a focus on the upper part (the small island and its background). It is a lovely shot anyway you look at it.

Thank you for the sharing.

hcc, can you see the detail in the darker areas? I see pretty much black!

I like 1, 5, and 6. And yes, there is quite a bit of detail in those rocks in the foreground on the 1st shot. I do agree with hcc on trying a crop as there might almost be too many rocks. Thank goodness no one pays any attention to their gps'.

This is a delightful series - I particularly like the first one. I'm having no trouble seeing detail in the darker areas - appears about right to me on my uncalibrated monitor.

Yes i can see the details in the darker areas. I tried on both my notebook as well as on my desktop. No pb. It might be your monitor.
Hope that the feedback will assist.

That third to last one is a great silhouette.

Thanks for the comment. It seems to have come out properly to me, and to others here as well. 2, 3, and 4 are supposed to have more or less burned out areas.

Thanks very much for the comment! To be honest, I do also feel I could've done a better job with my PP and whatnot on the first shot. It's just I can't bring myself to spend much time on that shot when all those other sunset shots were waiting for me

Thanks very much! Hah, indeed. And thank goodness there was no traffic for me to hold up that they either
