Sunrise at home, 10/25/2010, taken with my previous Canon.
Gates Pass, March 6, 2009, Sony Cybershot. This is how it really looked.
My current camera, a Canon SX 160 IS, doesn't have a preset for sunsets, or for much of anything else. I have to say that I'm getting pretty fed with the thing, and anxious to get a camera that will do what I want - even if I do have to learn or relearn all that stop about shutter speed and aperture.
Here is a typical photo on the automatic setting of my current camera:
I managed to get a nice effect of the reflection in my car's roof, but the fact remains that thesunset itself hardly shows up at all.
But I did some fiddling, and found that the Live setting lets me darken the scene and increase the saturation. So I did.
Better. The sky didn't actually look like that, and it wasn't that color. But it's closer to what I saw.
And how did I do with sunrises on this current camera? Judge for yourself:
Okay, one more from better days with better cameras.
Safeway Sunset, 1/6/2008. Sony Cybershot.
I have a nice firm camera that someone gave me last year. Batteries are dead, and it's strictly a film camera, but several people have assured me that the lenses are compatible with a Canon Rebel digital SLR. Someday, I'll have one of those - I hope!
