15 minutes of freedom. (2)

You may be interested to know that the five photographs in this series are straight from the camera, with no tweaking, other than Shutterchance`s own sharpening on up-load process.

I am always amazed (and very interested) when I read some of the technical explanations accompanying images. I seldom understand it all.

Well the only technical information I can give you on this one is as follows:-

Totally unplanned, spur of the moment decision on my way home from the supermarket, prompted by an enticing glow in the sky. Bitterly cold afternoon - no gloves. I toyed with the idea of removing the polaroid filter, but felt the sun was too bright, and my fingers too cold. No chance of fiddling with settings, or even checking the image on the screen during shooting - no reading glasses. All I could really see on the screen was the colour, and I liked that - it seemed to match what I was seeing pretty accurately. Just hoped that the `auto` setting would do the business, and the vibration reduction would cope with the hand held shots and my shivering.

When I got home and put the images on my computer, I was reminded why I love this camera so much. (:o)

Exceptional image, Rosalyn.

Really love the bold curves of the estuary, and its manifold attendants. Colour is not too shabby, either.

Absolutely gorgeous sunset, you have excelled yourself Ros
This is just fabulous Roz. I was pleased to read your words about tweaking because all my images are straight from the camera!
I love the technical information! See it, shoot it, download it, post it, enjoy it. Sounds good to me....I might try it one day tongue
Lovely Ros. Moving on nicely. richard
That's a wonderful sunset, and the composition is really artistic

A new likey for my collection smile
Sometimes a picture stands up for itself without all the technical stuff, interesting as it is Rosalyn. This is one of those, I look forward to the others. The lead in and through with the stream is ideal.
Lovely picture Roz, like everything about it and your techie explanantionsmile

Those wretched gulls get everywhere- "CLEAR OFF"!! Funnily enough, I do fully understand your techie information to go with this; it's something I can relate to very well! Varifocals help me but they are not ideal, either!
