    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Higher res from the view right now thread, cool to get a quasi golden hour in the middle of the day due to the smoke from the nearby Woodbury fire. At about 115,000 acres now

    Thanks! The light was incredible. Everything lined up just right to make the air itself look like it was on fire. Everything took on an orange glow. It was very surreal.
    Here are a few more...

    Storm rolling in with lots of lightning:

    If anyone is thinking I got carried away with the saturation slider, here is a shot that I didn't touch at all in post processing (no contrast adjustment, shadow lightening, etc). Just a straight export of the RAW to JPEG out of Lightroom. Note that doing this leaves the image a bit flat due to the nature of a RAW file. :

    Whole set is great but my favorite is the first. It does seem like the horizon might not be level? I could definitely be wrong.

    I took that photo free hand with my wide angle Tokina 11-16mm lens. I tried to find a balance in the frame with the complicated angles created by the way the various layers of hills slope. Looks like if I rotate the photo roughly 1 degree counter clockwise, the back row of mtns would look a bit more level. The only problem is the foreground trees on the far right will appear to lean in more.

    When two young ladies decided to climb up on the rocks in front of the lighthouse. I asked them to throw a few poses and it came out pretty good.

    Yeah, that's a tough one to split the difference on. FWIW, I prefer this second take. The mountains steady my balance personally, and I know that Tokina can add *some* distortion to geometric shapes on the perimeters. Of course, YMMV but the lowlights of the trees make the lean less noticeable yet the horizon is definitely a tell-tale sign.


    Speaking of distortion on wide angles (the bridge does curve throughout the span in real life):
