This evening’s sunset here was breathtaking, really I haven’t seen anything like it before. It had the awe of what looked like massive explosions in the distance, without any of the noise and mayhem. Like a silent apocalypse, if that makes any sense.
I filled my iPhone entirely using up the space for the 600 photos I can get on it.
This is kind of by way of a preview. I wasn’t meaning to capture the girl running past, she just happened to pass as I pressed the button. when I got home, I just really liked the shot. She’s wearing a life-jacket, as a boyancy aid, she’s just come out of the sea from swimming.
The “shadows” from the cords are an effect of the HDR photography. Basically from what I understand a HDR photo is three photos combined into one, taken a tiny fraction of a second apart. For objects that don’t move no problem. But for things like a running girl, then the images don’t match up so we get shaddows. This is why HDR is not recommended for shooting scenes with movement.
Without further ado, “Running Sunset Girl” :
