Today's sunset had a chance to be good, so I just cycled to a vantage point I had wanted to try out and see how it turned out.

K1+K24/2.8



Composition adjusted to get more of the road below and multi-exposure for the traffic trails.
The K1 is such a wonder image making camera, all these features that don't catch the eye on a spec sheet review, but is so wonderful for real image making.

Might have been better for the light trails if it was darker, but 15mins was all I had for shooting before going home for the next chore.
I like the juxtaposition of the ending daylight on the upper right and beginning taillights on the lower left. The serene reflections add to the sense of a crepuscular pause between the industrious day and frenetic night. Oh, and it's very clever how you aligned the reflection of the central background building with the foreground shore building.

I'm sure this will be PoV you'll return to under other conditions of weather and light for more interesting images.

That's a fine image, good composition, perfect exposure to capture the mood. Makes one feel as though they are standing on that spot at that time. Well done.

Last time I didn't try this pano as 10mm APSC is not wide enough to frame, the MBS building is too tall and will be very tightly cropped unless I have pano head to shoot multiple rows of shots and stitch/blend in PP. Now with 10mm FF I still shoot a series of shots for stitching but only 1 row of shots needed.

Sigma 10-20 @10mm FF mode, single row stitch without pano head.


another angle. as can be seen lighting changed very fast, multiple rows of shots during blue hour with long exposure is too challenging to try.
Another challenge I'm facing is the color of the Super Trees lighting changes every few tens of seconds, as I'm targeting red color for this frame I have to wait till this color then I shoot hence can imagine the amount of time spent for this pano.

This one stole the show...love it! I bet it wasn't easy to get that shot?

#4...I'm not a landscape fan.....or moonshots.....so I'll withhold comment......but if I was it would be a fine shot!

Very nice shots. I think I like the first one better, as there is still some detail in the sky.

I could shoot doves all day long on the Cheater Branches...and sometimes do!



Good light....it is still more important than anything else.
