I decided to head out for some sunset show earlier this week. The clouds were pretty thick until about 30 minutes before sunset, when they started to breakup quickly. This shot was taken facing the north, about 15 minutes after the sun had fully set. The color didn’t last very long, just a brief few minutes.
I used a 3 stop, reverse graduated neutral density filter to bring the horizon exposure in line with the foreground.
The exposure was 1/5, f/16 @ ISO1600. I used a higher ISO to keep my shutter speed low enough to get a slight amount of motion in the water, but not too much to make it smooth.
