Sky Fire

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Sky Fire
Sky Fire
No digital manipulation here. The sky was red from forest fires in the area and I managed to get a shot,without flare, using a zoom lens.

Thanks, Cyn. It was your image "Eclipse", I think was the name, that got me to thinking...."Wait a minute, I've got some images like that.".... I was going to delete them, then gave them a second look after seeing yours.

WOW. So glad you did not delete. This reminds me of a Japanese print but more intense. You have a haiku to go with it?

Kai--

Great work with this one. The comp is spot on, and the backlight effect works so well here. Just beautiful!

Thanks, everyone. Believe it or not, despite using a zoom, there was no lens flare. In fact I only had flare in a couple of the 20 or so images I shot that evening.

Sun is blown out (I know this is a tough spot). Minor jpeg artifacts evident. Not really a wow shot, but nice.

I love the color in the sky, Kai, and the crispness of the sun against the sharp plants. I tried a similar sunset-behind-corn-plants shot, but it doesn't have the airiness of this, being that the corn is packed closed together in the field; I like this much better!

How long ago did I tell you this was a winner, Kai? Feels like years but maybe it was only one. Can't tell you how glad I am that you decided to resubmit. Congratulations on your finalist and good luck in the next round.

I had a *feeling* this would go to gold, but I didn't want to say anything for fear of jinxing it! :) Big congrats, Kai!

Thanks, everyone!
It was a double winner day for me...
my first grandchild, a boy named Aaron Michael, was born this afternoon.
He weighed a whopping 11 pounds eight ounces!

I should add a special thanks to Cyn, it was one of her photos that kept me from deleting this image and entering it instead.
If you haven't seen her work, take a look at her gallery, she is one of BP's outstanding shooters!
