Some Older Pictures (Originally posted 2/11/08)

After posting the last set of sunrise pictures, I was reminded of some sunset pictures I had taken early last year shorty after purchasing my camera. Up until that point, I was shooting everything in Auto mode. It wasn't until recently that I started shooting mostly in Manual mode, with the occasional photo taken in Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority (I haven't really explored Program mode).

The picture above is of my son taken in the backyard as the afternoon sun was setting and casting a warm glow on everything; it's one of my favorites.

The next two pictures were taken on a different day. I was hoping for a nice orange glow, but got a lot of brown instead. It was until later that I realized that I was metering off the sun -- a big NO-NO! -- which resulted in underexposure of the images. Nonetheless, they still turned out rather interesting, don't you think?
