Days End
This is just a few minutes drive from my home. It was my first time visiting this trail... nice view of the coastal sunset without having to go all the way to the beach.

Sarah..I am a sucker for the soft and "fantasy" look here...I like to dream!   Color...great.   Grass and sky...great.   The only thing that I jumped on immediately was actually the horizon....did you try  to adjust the image clockwise to level out the horizon???  Was not sure.  And...is that a city skyline?????   Thanks....I really like this.

Thanks Richard.. that is a city skyline. This is Orange County and I think that area must be the industrial section near the airport in Santa Ana. Not really a very "romantic" area, but we can dream.. can't we? Smile

 Hi Sarah! Nice image - great sunset - and good to see you again on TPN (although I think I was away the longest!). 

Spectacular Sarah! What was your approach to treating this image? ND grads or PP, or both? The result is so seamless and beautiful, I'm thinking I could learn something off you here.

Spectacular sky, color, and light.  Great positioning of the person in the frame.

Patrick.. everything was done PP. I was on a hike with my daughter who was taking photos for a school project. I didn't have my "good" camera with me, just my old Rebel XTi with a Sigma 10-20 mm at 10mm, handheld. So, no fancy ND filters or anything.

I am a painter by nature so I tend to think of my digital captures as "not exactly blank" canvases waiting to be transformed.

love the softness and the colours, right time, right place, great image..

 Its a beautiful image! If I was to critique, I'd say it looks a little overprocessed for my liking, but art is art!
