Shooting A Sunset? You Need A Strong Foreground Object

I’ve made 10,000 eagle photos and this is still one of my faves. If you are shooting a sunset – a pretty, colorful sky is rarely enough to hold the viewer’s attention. A strong foreground object you can silhouette always helps make things more interesting.

  1. Very nice. By the way, I just printed a couple shots like this (silhouette w/ golden sunset behind) on metallic paper, and I was blown away by the effect — those golden tones wind up looking like liquid copper. I’m tempted to try one on metal plates — I’ve seen a couple printers offering these now.
