Sunset at the Wooden Shoe tulip fields. Yes there were acres of great color in the fields. But when the sun went down, the best color was in the sky. This was a high dynamic scene with the fields getting fairly dark and the sky a glow with nature’s beauty. Exposing for both was impossible. HDR would not result in a natural look. Blending two images in Photoshop would be a lot of work, the result would not look natural, and having detail in the tulip field and windmill would detract attention away from the sky. So I exposed for the sky only (I shot in manual mode) thus silhouetting everything but the sky.
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.
