Sun Sets on the Gulf of Mexico (Nov 28, 2014)

Ft. Myers Beach, Florida, USA.

This was shot with a tripod mounted Canon 60D. The camera was in slow-continuous shooting and I was using a remote to ensure there was little to no movement on the camera body. The camera settings were: Av Mode. ISO 100. f/22. I really prefer Av mode for continuous shooting scenes where the light is rapidly changing, such as sunset and sunrise.

Unlike most photography, what you see in this shot is exactly how it looked without any post-processing. Usually, I like to play with the colors and contrast to get every bit of beautify from a photo. With this particular image, it was perfect from the moment I pressed the shutter button.
