My Westen Sky

Uploaded: April 18, 2013


Taken from my back porch at the western evening sky to the treeline at the back of our property.

Nikon D7000, 1/640 at f25 and 35mm. UV and Polarizer were the only filters used. No secondary filters applied. The sun star effect was completely natural and quite a surprise!

LR5 to remove some flares and some color adjustment even though it was metered correctly in camera. Then to NIK Color Efx for color cast removal.
