Challenge: Best of 2002 (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S30
Location: Morro Bay Calif
Date: Dec 24, 2002
Galleries: Water, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Apr 1, 2006

The one subject that comes easily to me - sunsets.
Christmas eve sunset 5:55pm in Morro Bay. Had spent the day preparing for family to visit, then noticed conditions outside were looking good for a great sunset. This had to be one of the best sunsets I've witnessed to this day. When I got back to the house my family had arrived and my mom said "When I saw that sunset on our way in, I knew you'd be out shooting it!" My mom, who got me into this photography adiction.

Editing: some boost in saturation a little clean up and Neat Image, and frame added, but pretty-much as is. Will post some other shots from this eve on profile.

Wooo Hooo!!! My first ribbon!! Way cool! Thanks ALL!!

Congratulations on a great image. I particularly like the foregraound interest. The different coloured dinghies and the reflections of the clouds on the still water make it for me. Well done.

Is that color real? It looks great! Somehow maybe it seems too perfect...? That will have no impact on my scoring, but if you made use of some digital effects I would be curious as to how... Wonderful shot!

What a beautiful glow you have captured! Neat how the boats on shore point opposite of those on the water. Nicely done.
