From Wikipedia: In photography, the golden hour or magic hour
is the first and last hour of sunlight during the day, when a specific photographic effect is achieved due to the quality of the light.
Submit photos taken during the “Magic Hour(s).” One entry per person and a few NE’s would be fine.
This event ends Thursday, January 17, 2013 at around 10pm California Time.
Fantastic entry, Richard. I love the mist and how the color fades as objects are further away. This is a great study of color and distance. You have captured the magic hour wonderfully will all of your images.
Thanks very much for starting a new challenge, Ren! Always hard to come up with something unique, bur you managed well. Great topic!
Nice double rainbow - love the reflections in your harbor photo.
Thanks very much, Deborah!
I love how dark blue the sky is in your ballon photo, one of the many qualities of the magic hour. Also, the calm harbor is a bonus to create a beautiful reflection of the boats. It isn't very often we get to experience a double rainbow and you are lucky to have your camera ready. Well done.
Thanks very much for your nice comments, Ren!
Ohhhh, those lovely red tones are gorgeous on your second NE, Anita. Did you use a filter? I am just amazed at the colors. So beautiful.
Thanks Ren, I didn't see it like this before. No filter was used.
