For this challenge, I am submitting a photo taken in Brigantine, NJ of a beautiful sunset we were lucky to stumble upon. In late November 2011, as we left the beach to drive home, the sky suddenly became ablaze with red, and I raced to the back bay to find a parking spot, set up my tripod and begin shooting.
Some who have viewed other shots of this particular sunset have said that the images were photoshopped. Well, for one thing I don’t have Photoshop on my computer. I used Canon Digital Photo Professional, the free software that came with my camera, to make some minor adjustments: straightening and cropping, increasing color saturation by a notch, and some lens aberration correction. The results are as close to what I remember of the sunset as possible, at least I hope so.
