Sunset No. 6
SUNSET ON LAKE SUPERIOR, GREEN, MICHIGAN, SEPTEMBER 12, 2010
SMC Pentax-F* 300mm f4.5 ED (IF)
1/2000 sec. f13
Sometimes a setting sun captured with a long lens can be as striking as one taken with a wide-angle lens. I mistakenly set the camera's ISO sensitivity to a ridiculously high 2200 instead of the customary 400, resulting in a photograph full of noise. Lightroom 3's noise reducing feature took care of most of the noise, and Photoshop Elements' clone tool removed several orange artifacts in the blue of the lake. The result, I think, is OK.
