Sleeping sun #2

This is the second in the installment of sunsets. Not as dramatic as yesterdays but still a nice one which I like. It was actually supposed to be tomorrow's shot but the shot that was meant to be put up today was being very stubborn when I was processing it. I couldn't get the colours to come out right.

This one does actually look like a painting in my opinion but it's a sunset. Again I recommend that you have a calibrated screen to see these successfully.

Oh and Sinem, I'm doing this because I know you like landscapes. I hope I can post tomorrows shot if I get the colours right. I'm sure it should be fine, I have time.

Oh and the market stall was a great success for Tosin. We had a good time doing it. I think  she wants to make this a regular now. My girlfriend is a workaholic.

Yep it sure does look like a painting smile

Nicely done, I do agree with you it's not as dramatic as yesterdays smile

Glad to hear the stall was a success.
Well done Jide. I actually this one better than yesterdays. Like you said painterly and who needs all that drama. I am happy with a little peace.
nothing short of awesome. i whole-heartedly agree with you that the shot looks more like a painting than a photograph. i love how the background blends the light colors together, which are ultimately overlapped by the darker colors. terrific job!

I like this one much better, its less duller and more vivivivivivid.
