most astonishing sunset ive seen


Recommended Posts

when i took this picture about 3 weeks ago it was during all the hype about the volcanic ash so im wondering if that had anything to do with this sunset, the picture here does not give it the justice it deserves

 

with my eye the sun was the most intense blood red but camera never picked that up sadly so i guess im really here to ask why it didnt and how can i correct it in the future.

Shutter speed to slow??

 

Aperture to wide???

 

 

Maybe both???

 

Looks a bit overexposed to me, can you "intensify" it in photoshop?

Looking at the Exif information: Shutter: 1/60th, Aperture: F3.5, Program: Creative, ISO: 200

 

Shutter to slow, aperture to big and program should be manual or 'Auto P' with an EV+ option, this allows the aperture to be over-ridden. I suspect creative is 'Manual'? in which case stop down a notch at least, then shoot the pic, open the aperture half a notch, then same again, another half a a notch . . . it is trial and error, then choose the best one on the computer.

 

Under expose is better than over expose, you loose detail with O/E, slight U/E will allow some leeway to draw the picture out.

I think it's a great looking pic as it is. It looks 'real', rather than too perfect.
