Riverfest Sky

While standing along the riverbank during the seemingly endless wait for Wichita Riverfest closing night fireworks, I amused myself by monitoring the sunset.   I swung the camera around (didn’t want to lose my fireworks spot by moving), and fired off a bracketed set of exposures. Combined in Photomatix, I thought the result makes for a fairly pleasing little informal landscape.   The sunset itself never developed into anything more spectacular than this, but it was a welcome diversion during my wait.

  1. Lovely photo, not meaning to be rude but at first glance I thought the clouds were giving you the finger 🙂

    You have some wonderful skies in Wichita. I may have to look into HDR software. I have been combining shots using the old fashioned method of masking in layers. It works well, sometimes. I like this effect as opposed to the harsh, over-the-top HDR photos that seem to be popular. Nice job.

  3. Ah Colin! I see it. Considering my state of mind when I took this, (standing in the same spot for nearly two hours waiting). the cloud’s gesture is entirely appropriate.

    Ken, I am hoping to upgrade to the latest version of Photomatix in the near future, I will let you know my thoughts when that happens.
