This was something of a strange sunset to begin with, before I took my figurative “paint brush” to it. It had the unusual dark swirly spot in the middle, which I don’t often see in our sunset sky. I decided to amp up the intensity of that center to the max, and then experimented with the color curves for a long time. If you look closely, you can see some streaks of pale yellow in the lighter pink area under the spot, and if you look very closely, you can see the black tip of a church steeple in the lower left corner where the fuchsia blends into cosmic orange. Add to that the cosmic orange in the top two corners and the bottom bowl-like curvature, and I was finally happy with the result.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #57: Taking a Break

Some of you may have noticed that I only posted one photo early this morning. (At least early my time.) That’s because I have found myself exhausted by always putting up at least two posts a day. So I’ve given myself permission to only put up one post, if that is what I feel like doing. My older daughter, son-in-law, grandkids and I are going away for a four day weekend before school starts again for the kids. I’ve scheduled single posts per day through next Monday, so if I don’t want to add any more, I can relax for 5 days while we all are on a mini vacation, plus the additional first day that I’m back. I might be checking in on comments, etc, but if I don’t, I’ll catch up when I return.

Here is an idyllic photo of a bench and the lake to add to the challenge. Wishing you all a good 5 days!
