Vietnam Veterans Memorial Gazebo

Taken in Newport, Oregon this past week. I waited for the sunset in general and this was a bonus shot for me. Worked out much better than expected.

Mouse over for before image.



Shot with K-7 & 18-55 sand-proof lens, edited in PS3: Adjusted levels, increased saturation, darkened fringe.

a classic sunset scene Perry, i love it, sunset is out of the question for me at the moment, the sun set around 9:30-10PM at this time of the year, sunrise is 4:30-5AM here in Dorset.

and the stairs photo thats the building where we live, on the third floor to be precise.
