That moment when the sky sets on fire.

Photography Assignment

Daily Dog Challenge 1431. "A Singular Moment"

Our Daily Challenge - Oct 1, 2015 - "Dusk"

Original Images

As the boys and I were an hour apart when Sunset occurred, I had to get a bit creative.

The sunset image was taken with my iPhone. The boys were taken much later in our "studio" (aka Kitchen).

The two were glued together in Photoshop Elements, with a cutsie little frame added "Just Because".

The shot with Henry had a flash with softbox on both sides, both pointing at the white backdrop...

Henry in Silhouette

For Zachary I kept the flashes in roughly the same spot (in front of Zachary / further from the camera) but turned them face one another.

Zachary backlit

I think Henry's version emphasizes the sunset, while Zachary's emphasizes him.

But that's just me. :)

I can't pick a favourite, both are creative and brilliant! :)

Very creative images. Zachary's is eye-catching because of the light reflecting off his coat. I like the darkness of Henry in Silhouette
