Sunset Beach by Stuzal Sunset Beach by Stuzal
I'm not going to lie. Like everyone else I enjoy a good sunset photo. With this one I just tried to replicate the true colours of what I saw. It was one of those moments where I had all the time in the world to capture it, and it was changing into something more amazing every second. HDR with 13 exposures 1 stop apart. P.S. always follow you histogram!

Well, you had me fooled that this was an HDR image.  I'd like my future work to look like yours one day.

For the web (especially this site) you need to change the colour profile to sRGB internet standard. Sites like DA don't keep the embedded colour profiles so you need to convert it when you process the file. If you want I can walk you through the process, just send me a note. I would be glad to help as I had the same problem.

Ok the problem there is simply because when you look through the LCD on your camera in live view, or after you capture an image, what your seeing is a jpg version of your shot. Raw format is just that, it's the raw data of an image. It contains all the white balance of all the pre sets, as well as a much larger amount of light levels that you don't see. Plus the colours and sharpening always need to be upped when you get into camera raw, or whatever program you are using to process your photos. The reason that jpg's look exactly like what you see is because when they are recorded in the camera, the camera adds sharpening and saturation to the colours for you. That's why you don't typically take photo's in jpg if you want to work on them later. RAW is better because it contains so much more info than what is displayed, but it can be misleading when you look at them later. My advice is to take you pictures the way they look on your camera's display, then process them in a program like photoshop and see how much more you can manipulate. It makes a world of difference!
