SHOOTING AT SUNSET

We went with our Camera Club to Cleveland Point in the evening to shoot some sunset scenes. Even though sunsets are regarded as cliche shots because everyone does them we still thought it would okay to try for some silhouettes. Silhouettes are supposed to make sunsets more interesting.
Wait for me!
 While I was waiting for the sun to go down I had fun trying to capture the seagulls. They were standing on top of a car and then some took off leaving one behind. A group of three is supposed to be pleasing to our eyes.

 We choose Cleveland Point as it sticks out into Moreton Bay and we can catch the sun setting over the water which is difficult when you live on the East Coast of a country where the sun rises over the ocean not sets.

  5. Sunset shots may be cliche, but you got some great ones. I like the silhouettes you captured as well. All in all it must have been a great shoot.

  6. Your silhouettes are terrific. The three birds in flight is very pleasing to my eye. They must have had composition in mind when they left the other one behind. I think I might feel a bit intimidated in the presence of those tripods and cameras!!

  7. I think I may agree that the silhouettes do add something to the sunset pictures.

  11. These are wonderful sunset shots, Diane, and I was wondering if yountook them with your new small camera because one doesn't need a lot of fancy and pricey equipment just a good eye and being in the right place and at the right time...and you definitely did that! Those other camera clib members looked to be quite prepared as well.

  12. I was a tad confused by the header picture for a few minutes having got it into my head (correctly as it happens) that you were in Australia. The header is beautiful and close to my heart. The shots and sense of humour are beautiful.

  15. Those are beautiful Diane... It is a good thing I dont belong to a camera club, because all I ever shoot is cliches. If I like it I shoot it.

  17. Wow, it was worth waiting for. I think sunset shots do need a bit of foreground interest and you have done really well with these. You had a great position on the seagull airport runway too.
