    It seems like every day I go out, my sun/sky conditions are less than optimal, then everyday I want to go out, and we have a great sunrise/sunset, im stuck at work :squint:

    I've never seen the sky look like that, so consider yourself lucky :cool:

    5 is absolutely stunning until i realized the foreground is way out of focus.

    its more PP than id like to do, but somedays it really does look like that, not quite that vibrant tonight.

    yea, the foreground is oof in #5, i might crop it out a little (shot with my 100-400 at 100 mm, f/11) :o

    I guess the other part that makes me frustrated, is I have taken about 1500-2000 pics this year, and have 5 even worth keeping :/

    no work tomorrow again, so I'm going to try to catch the sunrise in the foothills

    I dont think its the pollution, I'm pretty sure its from all the fires in town.

    yea, WB is way off in the original. I got the foreground as light as I could, without blowing out the sky too much, while taking a picture directly at the sun behind clouds. the only details that are blown out are directly in the center, and right above it.

    I just use the histogram to get as close as I can with these types of shots, I just wish I could capture more dynamic range without using HDR.

    and ISO 100 to help with the noise :mamoru:

    I really need to get a CPL (for my 77mm lenses) a GND and a ND filter.

    :eek4: #4
    Thats amazing pp. I'm surprised you were able to recover that much detail from the highlights

    and I would crop #5 into a square
    maybe something like this:

    Thanks, I just played with the sliders in LR until I found something that worked.

    I actually cropped #5 like this on my computer now, I like it better
