人间天堂 (Beautiful Dusk Hour)



虽然工作非常忙碌,下班后的生活也平凡,但不复年轻的心像静止的水无欲无求,却也觉得踏实且完美。

无求与随缘的心,让我感觉到俗世间的美丽。当然不幸的事也时常发生,但纵观整个局势,世界仍旧算得上是极其美丽的,天堂其实就在人间,只要你用心去体会一切。

从微小的昆虫世界,到亲人小孩们的欢乐,到日出与日落的灿烂,甚至是穷乡僻壤,也成为了我这好摄者的天堂。

在此分享两张日落的作品,希望各位也能看得见人间的美丽。

I like to shoot landscape during and after sunset. At this hour, the color of the sky is in transition from bright to orange glow to bluish to dark, and we can get images of different mood and feel.

For these types of shots, I always try to use a tripod if there is one. With the tripod, I can set the ISO to the lowest which is ISO 100 in this case. Small aperture is selected to have slow shutter speed. With slow shutter speed, the surface of the water would turn into a mirror like finish that I always like to look at.

Some particulars/parameters of the photos here:

First photo:
ISO: 100; Aperture: f/22.0; Shutter speed: 5 seconds lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm at 10mm

Second photo:
ISO: 100; Aperture: f/16.0; Shutter speed: 2.5 seconds lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm at 10mm

Hope you will find our world beautiful as I do.
