The Beach

It's so wonderful to go visit the beach. It was so nice, we decided to stay one extra night, and I'm glad we did because the next day was superb for taking photos.
Sunset at the Beach

For this shot, I believe it was under-exposed by about -0.7 to darken up the foreground and bring out the subtle colors in the setting sun. The sun hadn't actually set yet, it was hiding behind some dark clouds. It seems rare in Taiwan to get those spectacular "Sky on Fire" shots after the sun dips below the horizon. So, these shots are equally as good and you get the nice silohuete of the people in front of the water. I've got one more to post from the same location with a row of umbrellas. I'll probably do some photo-shop work on it later this afternoon.
