Laguna Beach Panoramas from Monday…

Monday I had the chance to head down to Laguna Beach and catch a fantastic fall sunset at the main beach. It was one of those sunsets that didn’t pop at the moment the sun was actually going down… (you know, “god beams” and all)

No, this was one of those days when the sun goes down without much fanfare, and then the beautiful, ephemeral light just sorta sneaks up on you ten minutes later.

The kind of light you absolutely MUST have a tripod to capture properly, I might add…  ;-)

Take care,

October 22, 2009 - 8:18 AM Marissa Rodriguez - STUNNING! So beautiful! The last one with the lights is my favorite!

October 23, 2009 - 7:10 AM Mary Hurlbut - These are so gorgeous, stunning... I'll forgive you for not calling when you were in town! I thought of you when I saw those clouds.

October 23, 2009 - 9:52 AM Stephen Knuth - WOW! Awesome shots & I LOVE the new blog!!! Well done!

October 23, 2009 - 9:53 AM Stephen Knuth - Question ~ How did you get so much detail in the rocks of the 2nd image?

October 23, 2009 - 1:05 PM Matthew Saville - Stephen- I shot two exposures, (from a tripod) ...and blended them in photoshop. Technically it's called HDR photography, but I actually don't use an HDR program usually, they make the images look too fake and flat. For this, and most of my landscape work that needs blending, I do it manually with layers and masking. :-) Take care! =Matt=

October 24, 2009 - 9:34 AM Irene Frankhouse - Wonderful work......the last one is my favorite!!

October 24, 2009 - 11:43 AM [ b ] - sweet! let me know the next time you are going to shoot stuff like this. i'll come play

October 24, 2009 - 1:36 PM Cindy Meadors - Matt, that is simply magnificent. I love everything about it. New blog looks great, I've been wanting a blog by ProPhoto but haven't flipped the switch yet. I know you're pretty good (ok, great!) with technical stuff, but was it a lot of work to get it going?

October 30, 2009 - 12:27 PM Kia Gregory - The first and the last shot, stunning. Love them! Did you do post processing to the last shot?

October 30, 2009 - 12:41 PM Matthew Saville - Hey Kia! I didn't do much processing on any of these images, just contrast, brightness, or black point / shadows... :-) =Matt=

October 30, 2009 - 12:54 PM Larry Reeves - awesome work on these. I always love a Laguna sunset!

October 30, 2009 - 1:43 PM Matthew Saville - ...Of course, ALL of them are multi-image composites, either bracketing or panning... But that's landscape photography jargon... =Matt=

October 30, 2009 - 5:04 PM Sam - Gorgeous - your landscapes are all so amazing! Love the new blog too :-)

October 31, 2009 - 2:32 AM Anna - Wow, stunning landscapes! Love that second one especially, the light is so beautiful!

October 31, 2009 - 7:43 AM Chaucee - Wow these are AWESOME.

October 31, 2009 - 4:46 PM Lauri - WOW!! These are insanely awesome! That last one is definitely my fav. Beautiful work!
