2nd night of a dissapointing sun shot



Second night of a disappointing photo but at least it is a lot better than the first posting of the sun. At least this you can see some color and it looks like the sun was cut in half.Sorry this photo is blurry not sure what happend there.

I am not sure what setting i had this one on, but it does not look all that pretty like the rest.



As it was disappearing


And then it was gone

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

As I said, they may not be the must of the must but they are great!

I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on.

I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

The eye can see what the camera cannot record.

I know it's not exactly the way YOU viewed it with the naked eye but it's still very very beautiful... I have the same problem with my camera. I think I have to invest in a better camera and/or invest in a program such as Photoshop to help aid in making the photos "pop" out much brighter and dramatic... that is what many folks out there do.... but as I said before... these photos still look amazing just the way they are!

I like how it appears to be sliced in half! I suppose a cloud got in front of it?

SandyCarlson said...

the sun takes on the look of another planet!

Catherine said...

I love the colors fo your pictures. This sun cut in half is very unusual for who knows look at the Nature. I love #2 with 2 different colors in the both half! Surreal!
Thanks to share with us Lilly.

Merisi said...

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog!

As far as cameras and camera settings are concerned, I am a firm believer that it is worth experimenting with the settings, even with the cheapest digital cameras. Try, try again, thankfully all it takes is your time and patience, to find out the best settings for various light siuations.
Good luck! :-)

And yes, I do like the pictures the way they turned out, great potential, keep up the good work!

I rather like the line through the moon.

babooshka said...

It's still beautiful, the whole set of images. Such pretty colours.

sandy's notes said...

This makes me think of how life is. We sometimes see it one way, but when we want to share it with another, it can be interpreted as completely different. Your camera did the interpreting for you.

In my experience of shooting into the sun you have to manually set your camera. It has a hard time adjusting to the harsh light versus dark, kind of like our eyes. It's best to take all auto controls off and adjust; with digital you can see the effects while changing the aperture and shutter speed.

Happy 4th and skywatch Friday!

Luiz Ramos said...

No boring shot. Beautiful sky.

cocabixinhos said...

Beautiful series, I like the second photo specially!

uma por dia said...

Wonderful, each photo with different color.

mirage2g said...

The secnd photo is the best! True,sometimes you look at something and it really is so beautiful, but when your camera captures it, turns to seomthing other than what you expected....

Happy skywatching!

Ramblings of a Villas Girl said...

Hello! I love all the photos. I think that blurry pictures add a little more drama to a shot. Good job. Lisa

Marie said...

Great sky watch :)

the teach said...

These are wonderful pix! That's unusual to have the sun cut in half like that. And the purpley pink is gorgeous! :)

Craver Vii said...

I liked the colors and the split sun. I feel your pain, but there has been some comfort in that a few of the "mistakes" yielded an unexpected treasure.

So even though it may not have been what you initially intended, your post was still great fun and definitely worth the visit. :-)

Dragonstar said...

The colours often disappoint when you take them, as the camera doesn't see exactly what you see.
We didn't see your sunset, only your photos - and to us they are beautiful. Keep posting things like this.
