Sunset on the Beach

2011.09.04
pixel
It was really nice again, but something weird is going on.

Whenever I take a sunset photo and the sun isn't partially obscured by clouds, it gets this weird aura around it. It's nothing I do, it comes off the camera looking like this. I've tried on every setting and it still happens.

We went to the beach and watched the sunset tonight. It was beautiful as always.

I don't know why, I've had This songstuck in my head.

atszabo Sunset time all over the land! The ocean gives such a nice backdrop, much better than the Mississippi!

danrav The stratas of color are simply amazing Felecia! A delightful sandwich!!!!
danrav · 2011-09-05: 06:30
stabeez The way th elight shines through and reflects off of the clouds makes a beautiful capture.
stabeez · 2011-09-05: 07:34

wfrnk Beautiful... :-)
wfrnk · 2011-09-05: 09:23
????? A waking dream with the last picture! no existing word to describe it! Grand fade seems to me! But for other great photos :-)
????? · 2011-09-05: 09:50
smbunation Mmm... These are just really near perfect. The aura and all other factors just make them extra awesome. Great stuff.
smbunation · 2011-09-05: 09:55
????? How I do look forward to your beautiful posts!!!!!
????? · 2011-09-05: 11:18
Beejay Nice sunsets. The aura around the sun is most likely a contrast problem. Try a graduated ND filter and underexpose about a third of a stop and see if that doesn't help. BJ
Beejay · 2011-09-05: 11:32
davids #1 is terrific - that range of colours is unreal and the inclusion of a couple of figures adds that nice touch of scale and perspective
davids · 2011-09-05: 11:40
Patricia132 WOWOWOWOW! The first two are amazing ... I have NEVER seen such a beautifully colored sunset before!
Thank you for sharing! Great set~
Patricia132 · 2011-09-05: 11:50
Clarinetchick Love this set! So beautiful!!

Tinkerbell1769 · 2011-09-05: 12:35
yellodog A touch of melancholia is to be expected as summer comes to an end, for all lovers of life and light.
yellodog · 2011-09-05: 14:01
breizh Very nice ! All are nice ... #1in fav .
breizh · 2011-09-05: 14:39
EvaLizette Amazing sunset :) The skies are amazing ...I miss the horizon here in Norway ...Mountains everywhere !!
EvaLizette · 2011-09-05: 16:17
????? good set. the third one does it for me. i like the tones and the relaxed feeling it gives me
????? · 2011-09-05: 16:58
lukesmom Beautiful! I see the "aura" in the last one but not the first two. Don't know what to tell you. Because they all turned out well!! The one with the aura looks like a flower from the 70's. I'm sure you don't know what I'm talking about :)
lukesmom · 2011-09-05: 20:46
mystic1 Feby those captures are stunning well done
mystic1 · 2011-09-05: 21:53
karmankwarner such a beautiful array of colors; beautifully done.
karmankwarner · 2011-09-05: 22:18
????? o idk about the outline. use a smaller aperture maybe? i can't see your EXIF metadata so i can't really offer anything. plus there's maybe a lot of clutter in the atmosphere - dust and pollen and other pollutants that lend itself to the non distinct outline
????? · 2011-09-05: 23:22
Robertpetergee wow brilliant sun and sky scape photos!
Robertpetergee · 2011-09-06: 02:10
JumiElla Amazing effect! It must have been very romantic walk ...
JumiElla · 2011-09-06: 04:41
MoMac That last one lools like a flower in the sky, great set
MoMac · 2011-09-06: 06:05
????? haha revenant and i came up with the same culprit for your hazy sun. i guess that's a good sign eh?
????? · 2011-09-06: 09:03
????? these are beautiful, the colors are amazing! I hope you find the culprit, I can't imagine how frustrating this must be
????? · 2011-09-06: 09:52
Melusine Wow! I never stop getting fascinated by sunsets,
and this one is particular beautiful!
Melusine · 2011-09-06: 14:16
Eiram Fantastic shots!
Eiram · 2011-09-06: 14:39
storytaylor brilliant.
storytaylor · 2011-09-06: 16:50
elizzi so stunning!! keep capturing the sky please!
elizzi · 2011-09-06: 19:55
djnana You just keep doing what you're doing, if the results are like these! I put #2 in my faves because the layers of clouds and colors just go on forever! And I'm glad you identified the pelicans, because I noticed them right away!
djnana · 2011-09-06: 20:52
LisaMarieGeorge very nice set!
LisaMarieGeorge · 2011-09-06: 21:07
????? I'm not entirely sure in regards to the aura.. in my eyes these are all just so beautiful. Don't all sun shots kinda have that? I guess, the only things I can possibly think are either like David said, the haze/pollutants in the air, even marginally, or, and increase in colour saturation through the camera's internal autosettings?
At any rate Feebs, these are b-e-a-utiful :))
????? · 2011-09-06: 21:51
NellyBly Wow! These are simply stunning..love that rainbow of colors..stripes no less. Do you focus right on the sun? Sometimes it's better to shoot just to the side of it..Favored both of these..love the birds in the corner too..
NellyBly · 2011-09-06: 23:19
nataliemanco No words Felecia. the most stunning sunset ever : )
nataliemanco · 2011-09-07: 08:01
Eric34 Very nice ! Fantastics colors ! :)
Eric34 · 2011-09-07: 13:34
jlmphotos Great shots. The aura is caused by the digital sensor in the camera. Not much you can do about it except try not to point the camera directly towards the sun.
jlmphotos · 2011-09-07: 14:46
jennyLit really beautiful shots! #1and#2 are perfect!
jennyLit · 2011-09-07: 19:48
SheriJ Beautiful sunset posts!! well done! I guess the song reminds you of the sun going away?? I Like the song always have!
SheriJ · 2011-09-08: 14:16
timim amazing!
timim · 2011-09-08: 15:36
DancingDolphin I love that first shot Feby! Sunsets are really hard for a camera... the lens does interesting things but it never turns out like the reality. I've given up! :-)
DancingDolphin · 2011-09-08: 21:07
iso400 mmm I missed this set... After 60 comments (sixty!!!) what can I add?
I love #2, I love the colors typical of all your photos.
It's enough, others have used all available adjective. Too late!
iso400 · 2011-09-09: 06:50
DaNish56 1 and 2 are blowing my mind, and the fuzzy sun effect in them is definitely a plus!
DaNish56 · 2011-09-09: 16:15
MARETKA88 simply beautiful my friend....beautiful
MARETKA88 · 2011-09-10: 11:57
