Evening Glow

1/320 sec. f/11 ISO 100

Today's Tip:
When using a tripod, turn the image stabilization feature of your lens to off (if so equipped). Leaving it on when using a tripod can actually introduce vibration into the shot and reduce sharpness.

i like the mix of things to take your attention here - skyscraper, smokestack and tractor. nice juxtaposition.

Faye said...

The golden hour--or in photography terms minute! All the colors are so complementary from the evening light to the smokestack. Plus, you've told us a story!

The colors are amazing in this shot. I didn't know that about the IS on the tripod. I always have mine on. I'll have to test that out.
