"Some sunset shots from a new D7000 owner"


ZA
          

A friend and I went looking for a rare bird over the weekend.
Although we saw the bird it was just too far out of range for our lenses.
However as the sun went down I shot these two photos.
Comments/Criticisms most welcome..

I especially like the 2nd one: the dramatic cloud formation, and the silhouette of the "rare" bird in the foreground.

Great composition. I too like the second one with the Rare Bird in the corner. The "Bird" gives balance to the image.

Rob, I think I need two more lenses (but am willing to modify my list...hahaha). I looked at "rare bird" image's EXIF, I loaded it into captureNX2, and loaded in viewNX2, and NOWHERE could I find the lens used?

A related question - when you see a focal length in EXIF, would that number automatically include any teleconverter used?

I really like both images. The only other thing I would have tried, is HDR with the first image: but tilt the camera down so the horizon goes up a bit.

Cheers,
Zevi

Thank you for the comments everyone

Bill - I used the 35mm f1.8 DX lens for both shots.

Zevi - thanks for the idea. I haven't really tried HDR much but you are right, I think it would have made an interesting image.

Great Shots!

I like my horizon a bit higher too. But that is an opinion. and we all know what opinions are like!

Foundational/Conventional rules say you should always try for the Rule of Thirds. Horizon should be in at the median of the bottom third and the middle third.

I love it just the way it is however! I also love the second shot equally! Your buddy or Bird in the corner is awesome! That is a true keeper!

Happy Shooting!

Shoot, shoot and shoot some more!

hi all,

i find the second one really great:

the general hue, the shadows, the reflects on water..

you didn't shot the bird, but you won another great picture!
