A Friendship Sunset
Today’s photo comes from Epcot.
I was over at the park the other night covering the news for my Dateline Disney World column, and during a walk through World Showcase, I was presented this scene. Before leaving my apartment, it was rainy, cloudy, and just nasty outside. We brought umbrellas to the park, as it did rain for the majority of the time we were there. But, for about all of 15 minutes, the sunset colors you see here poked through the layer of nasty, making for a great photo opportunity. It just goes to show that it really is always worth it to bring the camera with you. I took this shot with my DSLR, but having a camera with me at all times is part of what inspired me to make the other half of my camera system a mirrorless kit. I shoot with the Olympus OM-D when I don’t have the Canon, but I’m even considering trying out the Fuji x100S, as it is a little bit smaller even, with a permanently fixed 35mm equivalent lens. I love the image quality of my 5D Mark III, but in many cases, today’s smaller cameras can get the job done. There is a good chance I’ll rent the x100S soon and do a review for the site.
Processing wise, I had to do a tiny bit of shadow boosting here, a little bit of saturation, and a tiny bit of straightening out the horizon. But, I think if I spent more than five minutes editing this one, it was a lot. That’s been my method of processing lately – shoot as much as possible, and spend less time at the computer.
Today’s photo was taken with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IIIand the Sigma 35mm F1.4 lens, both of which are available at Amazon. If you ever shop at Amazon, please click on the links here, as doing so will help support the site. Thanks for reading!!
