Sunset Dream

This is the first time I attempt sunset shots with my Canon 400D.


I found this gravel path that leads into the desert from the main highway south of Kuwait. I wanted to take a sunset shot with my car in it.

There was quite some difficulty taking this shot because of many 18-wheeled trucks and buses coming and going on this path (which is only around 7 meters wide), They came in groups of 5-10 at a time, so I had to wait until they passed before I could press the shutter, I had to also take shots in between the trucks if there's a big gap before the next one arrived.

I took many shots but this is the one I liked most. Edited with Photoshop for color and contrast.

All shots taken with my camera mounted on a tripod to keep the horizon lines level.
