Sunset on Lake Moultrie
Lens: 55mm Camera: K-7 Photo Location: South Carolina ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/15s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: slowpez, 04-10-2010, 11:17 AM

Taken with the 55-300. Looks soft to me but the wind was blowing up a treat and the slow shutter speed didn't help. I like the colors though so I'll keep it as a reminder to up the ISO and reduce the Dof to get a faster shutter speed.

Really beautiful shot, the tree makes a nice silhouette and the sky looks amazing with those colors. I sure wish I was there!

I really like the colors of the sunset and the reflection of them on the water.

This is the kind of simple - almost minimalist - shot that works so well. I sense what the air feels like from the photo alone.

Looks very nice to me, maybe I would have preferred a little more wider angle on this, but I really do like the way this one turned out.

I find that absolutely beautiful. You can almost smell the water - the mist rising in the distance shows the humidity. The colors are just wonderful. I'm very taken with your photo.
Great job!

A superb image. It may look soft when enlarged, but at this size it really looks great. If you are shooting at infinity, almost any aperture will do. And you do better than me handholding. I have to cut back on the coffee!

It is quite lovely. As for the softness, if you post process, you can selectively sharpen the shadow areas, or just deepen the silhouette.

Thanks JMR and Song. My PP skills are still somewhat lacking so I don't mess about too much. I think it's just laziness on my part.
