Title Pt. Atkinson Sunset
Description This was a perfect coincidence. I was in Vancouver for my son's scuba outing and had a bunch of time on my hands. Lighthouse Park in West Van always intrigued me so I took the opportunity on an evening that happened to have a beautiful sunset. My original submission of this photo received some very helpful critiques, and after a few tweaks it has been purchased by an art gallery in Harrison Hot Springs. I thought I would see if it was good enough to make the grade here as well.

surprised that the 1/13 s produces such a smooth water surface and this lovely sky.

Pt. Atkinson Sunset

You are right. This is a composite of three photos, the lighthouse and water were taken that evening and there was not a cloud in the sky. Cloudless evenings are enjoyable, but offer little drama for the sky. I used the gradient of the sunset blended with clouds from another photo.
