Red skies at night....



My son Carter silhouetted against the clouds of Hurricane Ike this evening.

As always comments and critiques are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks for all of the nice comments. We just got power back and made it through the storm relatively unscathed. These two pics illustrate before and after silhouettes on our most significant damage (I think we got 65-75 mph winds). See if you can spot the difference.

A bit too dark for my taste but a great shot nonetheless.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Mark,

Thanks for the nice comment. No filters on this one. This was the real color. The night before the storm hit, the sun dropped below the edge of the clouds and lit them up from below. It certainly foretold a wild ride.

Tom--As always, this is a top-notch shot. My only suggestion would be to try to get some separation between Carter and that first fence board on his right. At first glance, and because there is such symmetry in Carter's silhouette, Carter could be mistaken for a cornerpost of the fence. Colors are great and the perspective is intriguing!--Frank

Thanks for the suggestion, Frank. I'm not really sure how to do what you suggest. This is what the exposure had in it and I can't exactly restage it.

Thanks again,

Tom

Very dramatic shot, Tom! The sky is incredible! I'm glad you are ok. How close did Ike come to you? it looks like that big tree fell down.

All the best,

Endre

Endre,

It passed about 30 miles to the east of us. We got hurricane force winds out here for sure. We didn't lose the tree - just the fence behind it. We're pretty lucky compared to some other sections of town.

Thanks for the nice comment.

Tom
