    Here is what happens in my photo world.

    On a rare occasion, I see a sunset that is SO amazing, almost all the images are beautiful! Regardless on my settings and photo taking abilities! This is one of those sunsets! And, I send to Flickr a shot or two. With this sunset, I sent to Flickr 3 images, all of which were well received. However, I feel that if I sent too many of the same sunset, I fear people would get kind of annoyed or something, lol. Perhaps annoyed is not the right word! So, when I look back at the sunset, I see yet another image or two that I would love to share! And, because the original images and sunset was back in May, I feel I can introduce a couple more again! Not only has it been a while, but I have some new contacts too, that might like it! :) So, here you go, from back in May, well, that was only 4 months ago. Not the point! :) I hope you enjoy!

    Geek talk: For this image, I used the B+W ND106 and the Cokin hard grad filter. I also used a tripod and processed in LightRoom3. I know that once I post on Flickr, the image gets a bit darker, so today, I went back to LR3 and added some exposure, made it brighter. And thats why the area of the sun is a tad bright!

      How could I if you keep posting beautiful sunsets like this? Love the turquoise color of the water in this one. And... Sorry for being a bad flickr contact. Life has been hectic with a captial "H".

      I am hoping that you do get picked. This has been one of my favorites since I first saw it. It's got a haunting, ethereal quality to it. So beautiful.
