Re: Sunset's

Thank you Patricia
both your renditions are good like the "pink one " best
i will let you into a secret about the pink one, when i was taking the shot i was a bit concerned about how bright it was ( i thought i had read somewhere it could damage your lens ) so i put my sunglasses over the lens

Yes, I like what you did, but I would rotate it to the left a little (if you don't mind)

Re: Sunset's

if you're shooting with an slr you can always add a uv filter or any of a number of other filters to the lens as well. once i found out about uv filters i never shot outdoors without one.

I may be msitaken here for all I know UV filter is not very useful unless you are high in the mountans. It does one thing perfectly, though, it protects expencive lenses from dust, mosture condesation etc.

I did it myself in the beggining... but it seemed like the boat was sinking. That's because the horizon is like that because the photo was taken sideways. Hmmm.... now you have the difficult part... rotate the boat before it sinks.

Re: Sunset's

Thank you guys for the info about filters etc, as my camera is a point and shoot there are no interchangeable lenses, ( sort of glad about that as i would probably be more confused that normal )

Manta and Chillin firstly i had had not noticed the horizon ! so i opened it up in ps and rotated it left a bit and yep that threw the boat out, and now i cant make my mind up dodgy horizon or dodgy boat ! ! ! ! i think i was better of not noticing the horizon

Re: Sunset's

1. Duped the pic.
2. New Layer: Selected the sky and land above the water; added a custom sunset gradient; set blending mode to soft light.
3. New Layer; Inverted the preceding selection; filled with a med drk blu; set blending mode to soft light; added a layer mask; painted out the blu tint where the sun is reflected w/soft brush at 50% opacity; changed opacity to
20% and softened the blue tint on the rest of the water.
4. On background layer, select the sky and copied to a new layer. Used a radial blur set at 100% and set the radial point on the sun; added a layer mask; painted out the blur at the edges and generally around where it shouldn't appear with a soft brush set at 50% opacity.
