Skyfire - Sunset or Moonrise Contest Submission
Posted By: pentaxian_tourist, 09-04-2018, 04:33 PM

Skyfire - The night this photo was made I witnessed the best sunset I've seen all year. I'm also still learning how to use the ultra wide Irix 15mm f/2.4 Blackstone Lens. I went to one of my regular sunset haunts for this photo, and I thought it was a tossup as to whether or not the sunset would be good based on the weather I saw outside my house - not a cloud in the sky. And it was dull until the last few minutes. The trouble I had as the sky exploded into a fiery sunset was composing a shot without a lot of extra tree limbs and bushes in frame. This lens is making me think about composition more than any other lens I've ever used. I think it will, over time, make me a better photographer. A slower photographer.
