I saw a fantastic sunset from my backyard last Thursday night. Decided I’d quickly pop down to Brighton as it isn’t far from my house. I’m glad I went as it was one of the best sunsets I’d seen for a while!

This image is a combination of 3 that were digitally blended using Photoshop CS4 with layers/layer masks. I used a Wacom tablet for the blending work as it offers much finer control than a mouse.

    Again great use of available light. Love the perspective here.

    Thanks for your comment Steve. When I arrived my 10-22 lens was attached to the camera, but I wanted to try something different to the ubiquitous wide-angle images often taken of this location, so I used the ‘nifty’ 50mm F/1.8 (cheapest lens in my kit) to move in a bit closer. I’m very happy with the result too!

    Wicked processing! and what a brilliant shot!

    lol, looks like some form of surface to air missile.
