The Golden Hour by allym007 The Golden Hour by allym007
Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold

Lyrics from Fields Of Gold by Sting

For my friends who asked :

Shot taken 03 July 2008 - 8:44pm
Warm summer evening, no wind

Canon 40d + Sigma 10-20 :camera:
1/40 s at f/5.6
Focal Length 15mm
ISO 100
Tripod
Polarizing filter

3 pictures with exposure -1 / 0 / +1 merged into 1 HDR shot with photomatix.
Saturation and strength ajusted :)

Opened in Lightroom to add the copyright info and do some sharpening ;)

Time of post-processing : about 10 minutes.

I hope this helps ! :iconlovehug:

Absolutly breath-taking !
What i love about your pics is that they arent over-done. Even HDR still looks natural and simple.

I see you shot this with the Sigma 10-20
How do you like it with the 40D?
I am thinking of getting the 10-20 soon :D

By the way,
Really good shot :P

allym007 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
it is really a great lens !!! :boogie: I truly enjoy it and most of my shots are now with the sigma 10-20 for landscapes :)
Let me know what you think when you get one !!! ok ???

:icondrewhopper:
DrewHopper Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2008  Professional Photographer
Yeah I'll be sure to let you know how it goes
Is it very wide though?
Do you have a picture you've taken at its widest point so I could see? ;)
Reply
:iconallym007:
allym007 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
This one is taken at 10mm [link]
This one is at 12mm [link]
This one is at 13mm [link]
I hope this helps :heart:

I am still a bit confused :giggle:
I am new to the wide angle thing, sorry
I want a lens with a great wide point so I can get more in frame in landscape, waterscape etc..
I can't see the difference in those images.
Would the 10-20mm be best for me? :D
Reply
:iconallym007:
allym007 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
well you get to capture so much more with this wide angle !!! :)
What I'll do to help you : next time I go out, I'll take a picture with my 17-85 and the same pic with the 10-20 so that you can actually see the different angles... ok ? leave me note with you email addy and I will send you both pics when I have them :hug:

DrewHopper Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2008  Professional Photographer
Yes please do, that will be good help thanks :D
I shall send my email now!

by the way I have featured this in my journal if you'd like to have a look ;)
