    Default The view from the road

    I just posted this on my blog and wanted to share here it here. These are SOOC mostly - I cropped to a 5x7 ratio and ran noiseware as I had my ISO pretty high. That's it. If you want the settings, I'll edit with them later. But if you just want to look at them without caring at what I had the camera set at, that would be great. (I'm working on 3.5 hours of sleep, I was editing wedding pictures until 4am!).

    I'll be back after the kids go to bed to reply on new threads here.

    I truly think I'm addicted to taking pictures of the sky and sun. I have so many of them on my harddrive. I just love the beauty of the sky, the promise of the sun. And these pictures are just so remarkable to me. I took these as we were driving to Wisconsin last week. The sun is setting, and this was the view through the windshield of my car. Is it beautiful to you too?

    Gwen ...

    these are AWESOME! My favorite is #3. I love the sun peeking through the trees like that. Also the way the tree line rises to the right seems to echo the rays of the sun and I just LOVE IT!

    If you get the chance, I really would like to see your settings. I suck at these kinds of shots and I could use a starting point.

    Awesome shots! My favorites are #1, #3, and #5. I love the dark silhouetting against the sky.
