Final Light below the Storm II by hougaard Final Light below the Storm II by hougaard
Kogelbay (coolbay) , South Africa

About the rule of thirds....[link]

Another shot from that stunner of a sunset on 30 May this year.

4 different RAW conversions blended with various methods.
Once again, this is going to look a bit dull and flat if you're viewing it on an older monitor.

Sigma 10-20mm
Cokin 0.6 soft grad

You'll only be mugged if you ask for it through stupid behaviour e.g walking down a dark alley
