I have to say, these were probably the best pictures I have taken. I just cared deeply about the beauty of the sunset, and found ways to showcase its beauty.
For this assignment, I had to use the rules, or rather, compositional suggestions to create nice art. Things that were within this spectra were the Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, Natural Framing. Mostly I used the Rule of Thirds, but I did attempt to use Leading Lines, and even a little bit of Natural Framing, though the only success was using the Rule of Thirds. With Leading Lines, the leading lines were too dark to be quickly visible. Natural Framing did not succeed because I only attempted it once it was getting dark, and this was the only time when I was truly inspired.
I feel that taking pictures out of obligation for the grade is worse that out of inspiration, partially because, ultimately, the photograph will probably be of higher quality if inspired by some outside force.
One of the reasons to credit for these beautiful photographs is that I live in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, which has some of the most beautiful cloud formations and sunsets I have ever seen. Nature receives partial credit for the photographs.
These are the edited photographs that made the cut.
These are definitely up there on the list of some of my best work. They use that amazing effect of narrow depth of field. This gives the images a bokeh effect within their background, which is a style that I love.
The base tone curve was moved so that the photos could be brighter, but only a little bit. Sharpening was also done. De-noising, which is arguably the most important point that made it so that these photos could make the cut, was also done. The ISO values were fairly high due to low amounts of light.
There is not much else to say about the weight of these photos.
Many of those were to discolored for me to even delve into them.
