A Slowdown For a Sunrise by kkart A Slowdown For a Sunrise by kkart
A Slowdown For a Sunrise

And that is exactly what I did, slowdown, park, get out the tripod, and started shooting away!

Often times the most beautiful things are the things which we fail to notice. Life's little things, like this for example. My intention was to head for the mountains and normally when doing so, I wouldn't even be paying attention to the sky, let alone stopping to shot it. Well, this time I took some time out so I wouldn't miss it! Glad I did to, it was downright stunning! No one around, as you can see, just me, the breeze, and the colors of nature. I have always said that there is something about being up at this time of the day....and yeah, there is.

Processed in HDR, long exposure using my 4ND and my CPL, let me know what ya think watchers! Print to come.

Thanks everyone for your feedback & comments. It is impossible for me to say thank you to everyone who leaves comments, as it takes away from me seeing YOUR work, but if you do I will swing by your page and check your work out.
Thanks!

---John

First off let me say that your gallery is amasing!! You definatly know how to use your Maxxum to the best of its abilities. This photo is very good and pleasing to the eye. It makes me feel that I'm actually standing in Colorado during sunrise. I like the way you captured the natural light and colors, by the way the colors are out of this world, and the lighting is perfect. To be honest I can see nothing wrong with this photo, once again great photo!! Please check out my gallery, I'm interested to hear on what people think of my photos.

Hello.

I’ve featured this piece in my news article [link] . I hope you don’t mind it and enjoy the article, too.

I’m sorry if, by posting this comment on more of your photos, I’m spamming your inbox – I am aware that some deviants were featured numerous times, but want to be clear on what exactly I posted there. :)

This is amazing... I wish my mom would let me carry around my camera more. There really are a lot of things that no one even notices. We can be driving, and I'll just see a small little scattering of flowers beside some traint tracks near my house... When I get a car, I'm buying a tripod (since my hands shake and it's hard for me to take high-def pictures xD) and I'm taking pictures. I wanted to start something called "Suburbian Beauty Shots" but apparently, it sounds like people and not scenery. But photography is something that recently really intruiges me, and yeah...

Anyway, once again, this is amazing, I love little things like this. ^^

Why doesn't your Mom let you carry around your camera more? Hmmmmm I never ever leave home without mine

Because... It's hers, but I use it more. She's paranoid that I'm going to break it. My friend Sarah will use it, and I have to beg mom to let her, even though Sarah worships it and won't even let it just hang around her neck for fear of it falling off the strap or something. xD

Wonderful sunrise! I love the colors; they're so rich. Did you apply any kind of filter? I'm new to photography, please excuse my ignorance! Now that I've discovered photo taking, I have a new appreciation for being up before dawn! :)
