Ray of Light

Okay. I know that was a stupid corny (stupid + corny) title. I couldn’t come up with anything better. Anyways, my buddy, Ray is probably going to hate me for posting this but, I really like how this turned out. I was experimenting with trying to get fill flash using the built in flash so the subject and sunset would be properly exposed. This was probably the lone picture that came out half way decent.

The original picture was a little washed out because of the harsh lighting from the built in flash but with a littl post processing in Lightroom, I think I was able to salvage it. What do you guys think? Anything I could’ve done differently?

    from someone who knows nothing about photography other than hitting the button and letting the camera do its own thing —-> WHAT A GREAT PIC! 🙂

  • I like the picture! My eyes are drawn to the lightest area, the background sunset. I might go into Photoshop and make Ray's face a little lighter or the background darker. Otherwise, I like it! I wonder what it would look like without Ray in it too… just a nice ocean sunset! Good work, Edwin!
