Initially I came to this spot hoping to catch a good sunset. After which I promptly gave up; it was tough to get a shot into the sun and my filters didn’t suffice. So I pondered and turn to this scene which looked about right.
Opted to keep this shot because of the colors. Also, note the dummy dude doing perpetual gymnastic swings on the right. I have no idea how it works. Maybe a small electrical jolt to kick start the momentum?
The better one for the day.
I figured that the difference in light between the sky and the foreground is about 2 stops, so the filter worked just fine. I could have done HDR but it would be a terrible mess due to the moving elements in this picture; sure feels good to get it in one take.
And then I went home to nurse a cold for the weekend, bummer.
