Sunset at Soyambhu

Here are some of the sunset shots I took at Soyambhu.

#1 :


f/5.6, 1/1600 sec at ISO 80.

#2 :


f/5.6, 1/800 sec at ISO 80 with Cloudy WB.

#3 : Here is a shot with a little bit strange(?) color. Some of you guys may not like this but I like it.
f/5.6, 1/4000 sec at ISO 80.
Both the shots (#1 and #3) were taken with AWB but the colors are so different. I am not sure how I got this color. I checked EXIF info and found nothing unusual. It May be that AWB in DSC-H50 is not consistent or it may be that the temperature during sunset and sunrise changes so fast that it was the real and natural color of the sunset at that moment. Anyway, I like it. It looks cool and peaceful.
#4 : And is another one.
f/5.6, 1/1000 sec at ISO 80.

  1. DreamSky, yes you are correct and thanks for the suggestion.

    I’m realizing that I’m concentrating more on technical stuffs rather than composition. It’s the composition that makes a photo look great. Expert photographers first think about the composition and then they determine the f-stop value, shutter speed and all those for that composition.

    Thanks again DreamSky for reminding me the most and perhaps the only important factor of photography – COMPOSITION. And what about those technical stuffs? Yes they too are important but not as much as the composition. Even the auto mode in todays cameras (DSLR as well as Point-and-shot) works very well and can take care of those stuffs. So next time I’ll move myself left and right or even bend my knees to get great composition, angles and perspective rather than just standing and rotating the wheels to try different settings.

    Here is a great article titled “Composition : SEX and Balance” by Ken Rockwell.
