The Sunworshiper by kkart The Sunworshiper by kkart
Captured at a massive sunflower field along the Colorado eastern plains…where every August means one thing in Colorado…Sunflowers! This August has been utterly incredible with some of the most amazing sunsets I have seen and all backed by massive fields that are literally millions full of them.
Captured on my Sony a550 using a Minolta 18-200mm lens, Grad ND, CPL and in camera HDR …all backed by my tripod.
I hope you all like it
John

I like the crop on this shot much better than the other shot that had a large sunflower center stage, the portrait format is a stronger composition I feel.

nice picture, good work and great time to shot.

i understood all the technical aspects but for one thing - what is the "in camera HDR"?

have a nice day and weekend!

basically my camera has the ability to shoot different frames and then combine then into one exposure ...it does it all in body with no additional software like Photomatix needed

I love how all the sunflowers in the background are bowing down, but the one in the front is "staring" at the camera. :XD:
