Grand Canyon Sunset by Rhavethstine Grand Canyon Sunset by Rhavethstine
Catching the last rays of the sun.

Thirty second exposure with a funky white balance to bring out the colors.

Critiques appreciated. :)

Ok done with the painting, you can find the link here [link] . Just wanted to submit it, but I'll have to wait till I can use my school's scanner in mid january to get a decent image. The one that I have up here looks absolutely horrible compared to the real thing.

Wow thank you very much! I'm honored to work with such a great photograph. But it should be loads of fun, I never get the chance to really work on my watercolor painting alone without combining it with ink. You'll definately be the first to see it.

Lovely place, I need to go here before I die. Did you use a gradient filter to darken the upper half of the image?
Reply
:iconrhavethstine:
Rhavethstine Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2006
Nope, I just waited for the sun to go down enough that the sky wouldn't overpower the rest of the image, much like you would do with an architecture shot. The entire crowd of hopeful photographers at this vista point had long since given up on the sunset by then. :D

Yup. I have a few shots that include it in the composition, but this one was the best out of all of them. :) I think it was taken one or two points west from Desertview... Navajo point maybe. I'm not exactly sure.

I haven't browsed your gallery in ages. lol

This picture takes my breath away! I love how the light source is in the one corner. It gives that whole area a gorgeous glow effect. Fantastic job capturing colors!

Really? Your photos are so inspiring! I'd think more traditional artists would want to look at your work. Well, either way, keep up the good work. I need to stop by your gallery more often. O.o

Incredible... the tonal range, the colors, the detail, the light on the Colorado, everything comes together so well i nthis shot. Definitely worth a fav.
What point was this taken from? Is it the abyss?
Reply
:iconrhavethstine:
Rhavethstine Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2005
Thanks. I think this was taken at Navajo Point. But whatever point it was taken from, Desert View is just off-camera to the right, if that helps you get your bearings. It's sadly a tourist vantage point that this was taken from - one of the few in my small, but growing photographic library - but at least I can say I've been to the river at this location, which makes me feel marginally better. :)

Dude...that needs to be submitted to AZ Highways or the State Fair or something. One of the best of the canyon I've seen :) Really nice job there.

I'm still a n00b when you compare me to most of the guys in AZ Highways, so I'm going to aim at a little more reasonable target for now. I'm thinking about prints in the near future. :)

Thanks. I tried to wait until the light was at its most even distribution, while still catching the color from sunset. Seems to work very well for relatively low-contrast output.

Hehe, thanks. :) I thought it might make a decent poster-sized print the first time I saw this in my camera. I'll have to have a local shop print out a large version once I'm done tweaking the source file.
