Long Level Rays and Reeds

Another from my brief outing last night with the new Canon. I was watching the sky as it turned toward sunset, but could find no appropriate vista. I finally resorted to zooming in and framing a bit of foreground against some of the better color effects. The Canon, with just a bit of help from Lightroom, did well in catching the subtitles.

Canon SX20IS at about 250mm equivalent. F5 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Recovery for the highlights in Lightroom. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset.

From First Canon VA.

    Nice colours. The silhouetting would make this work in B&W as well, but in this case it would be a pity to lose the colour.
