Photo: Day's End

Days End
The dishes are washed and the kitchen is closed. This was lit by a beautiful sunset outside my door. It was at dusk when I shot this, but I balanced the camera on the counter for a 2.5-second exposure to give the sensor enough light.

What goes on around the sunset is often a lot more interesting than the sunset itself. Or the solar eclipse, or full moon, or the big thunderstorm. Take shots of everything, or take shots of something and focus on it. Usually for me, the first shot I take of an object or scene is the best, and then it goes downhill as I tweak and experiment with different angles. So trust your instincts.

This shot is wide-angle (18mm). It seemed better than backing up and going telephoto.

  1. was this photo taken with a wide angle or 50mm lens? am a bit confused because your post says a 18mm yet it is tagged with 50mm 1.4?

    looks like a 18mm to me but would be good to know for sure.

    lovely tones in this shot…..thanks.
