So I’ve started playing with the manual settings on my camera. I don’t take a very “scientific” approach to photography. I just snap pictures with random settings until I get the effect that I want. I can see the pattern and adjust accordingly, but I couldn’t tell ya that certain f-stops or shutter speeds get me what I want. When I have tried that, I end up getting too caught up in the numbers and lose my shot. My creativity is squashed when I try to get technical.
Sunsets are always made a little more special when the clouds cut through the sunrays.
I did a minor curve just to separate those sunrays from the cobalt blue sky.
