Evening light at Oldfields *EXPLORED*

Flickr’s Explore feature gathers the 500 most interesting photos uploaded each day. They’re chosen entirely by software, using an “interestingness” algorithm that factors how often a photo is viewed, “liked,” and commented upon; and how active the photographer is in viewing, “liking,” and commenting upon others’ photos. You can see today’s Explored photographs here.

Ten of my photos have been Explored, including this one. It’s great fun: each photo has gotten a ton more views, likes, and comments than any of my work normally gets, and I usually pick up a few new followers.

Favorite Photos Week: Evening light at Oldfields

Evening light over the back deck

One evening in May the setting sun cast a warm, brown light into my neighborhood. I grabbed my Canon PowerShot S95 and tried to capture it. I wish all of my cameras had a “capture this just like it is” setting. Frustratingly, the S95 kept wanting to auto-white-balance the light back to normal. I ended up shooting in program mode in RAW, with white balance deliberately set to capture the light as close to right as possible. And then I tweaked the image further in Photoshop trying to fully recapture that interesting, delicious light, and how it shifted the colors of everything it touched.

I love how my growing interest in photography has attuned me to the world. I used to live in such blindness and ignorance of the subtle, the beautiful, the interesting. Not too long ago, even if I had noticed this delicious evening light, I would have shrugged it off and turned back to what I was doing. I would have really missed out.
