Evening Photos

I went to the town's main and lovely park on Sunday, hoping to catch some nice colour there. But I was too late. The sun was too low already, and it was cloudy too, so there was little chance of catching light on leaves.

I did take some photos (you aren't surprised, are you?) looking across to where the sun was setting. It's never the best angle from this park, but one tries anyway.





In a somewhat similar view to the last photo, I applied a warming filter in post and got a nice result. In the film days, you could mount a warming filter on your lens. Now you can do it in post.



After we got home, I went across the street to take a picture of the neighbour's Halloween lights. She's the only one on the block, at this point, who has done this. There are other decorations up here and there on the street but no other lights yet.

Great photos, AC. I have never used a warming filter.

Nice that you got unexpected results from your evening walk, John, as these sunset shots are lovely. Yes, ai do remember using a warming filter on my SLR lenses and my personal favorite was the 85A, which I believe was also dubbed the “suntan” filter.

Who wants run-of-the-mill daytime photos when you can have all the mystique and beauty of those you took AC ? Lovely.
