sunset

photo by Donald Kinney

The sun often turns into a creative sculpture as it does a little dance on the horizon and sinks into the Pacific...

My lens isn't terribly long, so I had to crop this image down quite a bit for this fragment.   I gave it a treatment with Photoshop's "smart blur" filter to smooth out the image and hide a bit of noise.

I've left my Photography for Dummy book at home so I guess I'm gonna ask a silly question, sorry about that. What would happen to the photograph if you had a longer lens? What happened before you cropped? Just curious.

Thanks for your comment on my wordy make-up post, by the way!

THANKS KLAUS for the comment -- I enjoyed your great post today...

AND THANKS TOMATE FARCIE:
Well, if I had a longer lens the sun would appear larger, so I wouldn't have had to crop (scale) the photo so much.

Simple yet it has so many beautiful elements. Aren´t sculptures always creative?
