Peter Tavy Sunburst by Alex37 Peter Tavy Sunburst by Alex37
I am very very lucky to live in such a place. My friends dont understand me wanting to go home. Peter Tavy is very isolated, but as far as landscapes go it doesnt get much better.

I have seen 6-7 shots now from various SW photogrpahers on various websites all from this evening. Everyone was out with their camera and everyone saw these rays to a greater or lesser extent. This is my first time with these lighting conditions.

I got absolutely swarmed by midges taking this. I was doing the old, press the shutter, run away, run back trick but still got bitten all over *itches leg*. Next time I'll wear tights....

I will make a few more tweaks to the processing tomorrow, its not quite there yet.

Nice capture alex. I think the blues are a little o.t.t mind you.
Filters or processing?
Reply
:iconalex37:
Alex37 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
well you cant do it with filters, so that would be processing then, but whilst they are rich, and slightly richer than the blues on the day, I do think that it is representative of the scene. Ie with less contrast the sunrays just dont stand out like they did. (that and this has already gone off to the printers :) )

Thanks for the critique though Mark, I really appreciate it.

damn midges.. wearing tights might have the added bonus of not being disturbed by any passers by wanting to steer clear of the 'eccentric' photographer =)

This shot is really inspiring. I think the shot is really made by the town sitting below. The dwarfed village makes the sunset so impressively massive and majestic. Well done! :nod:
