Staring at the Sunset

I had bypassed this photo during my first time going through the photos from this location last summer.  Recently as I was doing a quick scull through my library I came across this photo again and decided to take another look at it.  I worked on this in Lightroom enhancing the setting sun color in the sky and slightly increasing the exposure of the bird to stand out a little more.  A little contrast and clarity and it was done.

Sun and Flower

Often times you can go out and get ready for a new idea for a photo.  I wanted to get a sunset with the flower in the foreground.  The original plan was to have a more wide-angle view, but even though it appeared we would get a nice sunset when I set out, when I got there it changed for the worst.  The sky got hazy and clouds disappeared.  I changed the plan and went for a more closeup look with the sun in the background.   It's a different style from what I normally do, but it was fun to try something new.
