Am a bit reluctant to carry on inserting these sunsets but it seems that people do like them. Herb

Tony Reid on August 15, 2008

Yes, they do like them. That's mainly because they are so d*mn good! Especially this one.

Well done, Herb.

Cheers, Tony

Beauty! You have a lot of these sunsets haven't you? I every mow and then visit Tjeert Mernsinga. He's living near the seashore. He's also a sunset photographer. He has similar sunsets.

Greetings, Jan

Jan, you honour me by your visits and comments. I have followed the link to Tjeerts gallery and like you say, I see 'my own photo's' almost. Thanks again. Herb

Wonderful work,Herb.I must return to your gallery again soon. On a pic,such as "Golden Glory" do you use any filters,of any sort ?? Cheers, DGJ,

Herb Riddle on February 11, 2009

DGJ thanks again for yet another nice comment. In answer to your question, the only filters I have on my lens are ultra violet, mainly to protect the glass. My Olympus has a sunset 'setting' that turns down the brightness and also makes the reds somewhat more yellow. (I think I used that here). Sometimes this does enhance the picture but often it really mucks it up! You can see a good example of that here. Another thing that many photographers on here, including me, use is good quality photo editing software. This allows us to add filter effects afterwards of many different colours and intensities. I also use my software (Paintshop Pro and PhotoShop) to delete/correct bad points and sometimes even to 'tweak' things a bit to get the most out of them. As one of my viewers once said - "to put back into the picture what the eye really saw". You can also see on here examples of the original pictures being completely changed to produce almost another image. "Enough Herbert you are ranting!!!!"

Greetings Herb

Herb.Many thanks indeed for your speedy informative reply,s. You must spend a heck of a lot of time at it. I am now much wiser,but still a lot to learn.We firefighters retire earlier than most,and Panaramio looks like my kind of a hobby. My old OM 10. with 35/70mm Zuiko has served me well,but if I am to try uploading and competing with you Maestro,s ,then I will invest in,maybe digital SLR.? Thanks again for your valued interest in my new found hobby. Right then,back to the Gallery.s !! Cheers, DGJ.
