Smokey Sundown

This is true color, actually.. The extremes of the red come from the fact I was shooting at 1/2000 of a sec and some slight hues can turn deep if the backlight is there. Taken just over the NY-VT bridge near Rouses Point. I owe most of the color to the smoke in the air from the wildfires across the Canadian border.

This shot is unique for me in a couple ways. First, I added a heavy warming filter to give it a deep sepia-esque feel. I usually just add slight tints to barely change the atmosphere of an image. Secondly, no part of the shot is really in focus. I purposely focused it somewhere between the bike and the background to try and give it a bit of a dreamy/fuzzy look. Summer evening shots are fun but I want to diversify a bit away from the standard sunset shot.

I was lost somewhere between Rouses Point, NY and Chazy, I think..
