Poole Harbour Sunset

Sunset at Holes Bay – Poole Harbour Dorset

If you are a photographers using the digital medium you have no doubt been told hundreds of times not to delete photographs in camera unless you can see that are a  total disaster.  Last night brough this home to me.

I was sat at home with not a lot to do last evening just before sunset.  The cloud was breaking and it looked like it might be a decent sunset.  I haven’t done any landscape photography for months so I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed to holes bay, about a mile from home.

i was a bit disappointed with the sunset, too many clouds right on the horizon and too few right above so i wasn’t very hopeful.  I had a quick flick through what I had and was about to delete a load as I thought the shots were pretty mediocre.  I decided to have a look on screen first and was rather pleased with some of the results.  These are pretty much as shot, just a touch of contrast added in Lightroom and a little boost of the mid-tones.  I’m pretty pleased with the results.

What do you think?  As always any feedback positive or negative is very welcome.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
