Sunset on a Farm

I enjoy shooting into the sun and trying to capture it right before it disappears.  Notice how flat this place is?  That’s south, central Kansas and boy are the sunsets beautiful there.  I also like the tractors!  The one on the left is hooked up to a planter, incase you were wondering.

I actually processed this photo a couple of months ago and decided to reprocess it, this time using Photomatix Pro instead of the Photomatix Aperture Plugin.  I think the results are better this time. A lot cleaner for sure.  I like it.

  1. Thanks Gracie! For the processing I merged the six bracketed RAW files in Photomatix, then added contrast and some other tweaks in Aperture and then I sent it to Photoshop for noise reduction (Noiseware plugin) and sharpening. After that I decided to play around a little and opened it up in Nik Color Efex Pro and added the brilliance/warmth filter, which really brought out the color.
