Photography is all about the right timing , this images are taken at around 6 pm CA time where the sun is almost setting..with just the right ambient light , Open your aperture at the widest 1.8 to 5.6 to get enough light and produce a soft shallow depth of field without any sun glares..
i know many of us here are using Nikon D40 , this small light weight DSLR make so many wonders if you just know how to tweak the 3D color Matrix II ,
Set your saturation to enhance mode , that simple mode can enhance the colors and tone of the subject without any falloff and comas to the edges...the kit lens that come with the Nikon D40 is one of the best lens so far..with ED marking ( Extra low dispersion) Glass that reduces Chromatic aberrations..

Condition :
Almost sunset time
Technical Aspect :

Equipment :
Nikon D40 APS - CFrame 6.1 MP
Lens : Tamron 18-200mm AF asperical LD
Aperture : 5.6
Shutter : 80s
Mode : Manual , Saturation Enhance
Metering : Center Weight
ISO : 400
NR : On
Flash : did not fire
Tripod : No
Post Processing : PSCS3 just for Shadow Drop , Desaturate , Water Mark and sharpening technique..


Thank you for viewing!
