Perfect Day by Xerces Perfect Day by Xerces
From my series of pictures named with a song title Perfect Day- Lou Reed

Another sunset pic from my holiday to Tenerife. You can just see the island of La Gomera on the far right hand side. The colours were just incredible that night. We were on the breakwater for a while getting photos and taking it all in. This is taken with a shorter exposure than Serene Dream.
Taken using a Cokin P 121 filter with NO post-production editing apart from the frame and watermarks.



Inspired By:
Just a perfect day,
Drink Sangria in the park,
And then later, when it gets dark,
We go home.
Just a perfect day,
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later, a movie, too,
And then home.

Oh it's such a perfect day,
I'm glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

Just a perfect day,
Problems all left alone,
Weekenders on our own.
It's such fun.

Just a perfect day,
You made me forget myself.
I thought I was someone else,
Someone good.

Oh it's such a perfect day,
I'm glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

You're going to reap just what you sow,
You're going to reap just what you sow,
You're going to reap just what you sow,
You're going to reap just what you sow...

"The sun? Conscious? How?" "In a way lower organisms like you have difficulty to grasp. One thought from the source takes longer than a human life. A conversation with other stars takes thousands of your years." "All the stars are conscious?" A dry laughter resounded. "Of course. They are the original inhabitants of the cosmos. Without them there would be no organic life, let alone organic consciousness."
- Elian Lazaro, Elysium

yup :-)
the sky just looked insane, and i'm glad i used the filter as it darkened the top half a little more than the bottom half. i've not used filters much before, so i'll be expanding my collection a little to play around with more =D

I've got 2 filters...

One polarizing against reflections and one ND for long time exposures like this one :)

Except for crop it is unedited :)

Xerces Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
yeah- i remember looking for a polarising one a while back and had no idea what i was looking for >.<
the NDs work well. I have a couple of coloured ones my boyfriend has bought me for my birthday. if they ever arrive that is!

It's really worth it - you can change the sky totally...Getting much contrast in it.
