  #182 Contre Jour / Backlighting
Entry 2 of 22
   
 
Simple Pleasure       ©2017 SteveBee
Panasonic DMC-GX85       2nd place, 189 points
1/5s, f4.5, ISO 800, 28mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Shot in raw and developed in LR. Relatively minor tweaks overall. Slight perspective adjustment, decrease highlights, increased shadows slightly, added a little vibrance to the color.       Extra Info: The couple sitting on the back of their pickup truck with their dog enjoying a very pretty sunset added a human element and story to the scene. Venus shines brightly in the sky.

    Congrats Steve!

Was the perspective adjustment to try to straighten the trees on the left?

    It was a really tough choice between your shot and Neat's. This is absolutely beautiful. Congratulations on a great capture.

    Great light on an attractive scene, though for me, the single point of light in the expanse of sky doesn't do enough to balance the composition.

    The colours are gorgeous in this photo - love the branches against the blue sky. I might have cropped it a little tighter to give the truck a bit more prominence in the composition...

    Beautiful relaxing scene. The colours are a huge bonus as is the human element.
