July 4th Sunset
|The Pre Fireworks Show|
Though the goal for me was the shoot fireworks, this came away as my favorite and best shot of the day. This is a single exposure (not HDR) taken with the help of the aforementioned railing, since my shutter speed was 1/60, which is technically in the safe area for handheld at 28mm, but I like to be safe. I was happy to get some cloud movement and tried to accentuate that through my +Topaz Labs plugin work, primarily in Clarity and Detail.
