Photo of the Week - Sunset at English Bay

Sunset at English Bay

Talha Tariq has some cool images on his flickr site, but I chose this one because it is a textbook example of catching a perfect sunset that our eyes sometimes enjoy but many fail to capture on camera.

The EXIF data has been blocked so we can’t see how it was captured or with what camera, but to my readers the trick for getting a shot like this is to under expose as your camera meter will want to blow all of that gorgeous detail out of the sky.

My only recommendation for this shot is to cut out the bottom 10 – 15% of the beach as it doesn’t need to occupy more than 1/3rd of the frame. It’s a good job of keeping texture in the foreground and a perfect exposure overall. Well done!

Be sure to click this photo above and leave some feedback on Flickr so this reader can get your feedback both good and bad (be gentle) and feel the love from our readers here!
