The View Across the Harbor

The view across the harbor in Baltimore.

I have long-favored shooting at the edges of day and night because of the wonderful lighting the exists during those brief periods of time. In the previous post we had an example of a sunrise. Today we take a peek at a sunset in this view across the harbor of Baltimore. What you cannot discern from the image below is the fact that it was bitterly cold on this December evening. The wind was quite low, allowing the water to remain calm and smooth.

Processing

Once again I used the new Lightroom 5 Beta to process this image. I really like what they have done with Lightroom 5 and will write a post on my favorite feature, so far. It's important to know that this public Beta version is a work in progress and may undergo considerable changes before it's final release.

Sunset in the Atrium

Quick post today, friends. While downtown for a boat parade (boats decked out for Christmas) I kept my eye on the sun anticipating an opportunity to create something. As it was setting, I could see it heading toward the backside of the rooftop atrium on the National Aquarium so I decided to wait it out. The image below was the result.

Having setup my tripod on a bench in the distance, I waited until the sun was just dropping below the roof line which decreased it's intensity. This was a 3-shot bracket but I processed only the -2 exposure as a single image in lightroom 4.
