Siletz Bay sunset

Sunset over Siletz Bay, taken earlier this month on my sojourn to Oregon. I have a few other photos taken the same evening, but (for now) I like this one best as it combines all the elements into one image: the sunset, deep blue water, sand, pier, viewfinder and kayaker. 

Camera & Settings: Nikon D5100, Nikon DX 10-24 lens at 14mm, 1/320 shutter, f/8, ISO 200. Handheld camera and shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom 4. I used the onOne "Graduated ND .5 stop" preset, added some vignetting as well as a few other adjustments to bring out some detail in the shadows. 


Prints and digital downloads of this image are available from my SmugMug site, which uses a very good print lab (Bay Photo) and my prices are very reasonable because I'm a hobbyist and not a full-time pro. An 8 x 12 print with a metallic finish (which I prefer) of the above photo is $10.95 plus shipping. People tend to buy my photos as gifts for others and to decorate second homes and condos; SmugMug also offers framing and ready-to-hang mounts. I appreciate your patronage and pump any money made back into my photography and maintaining my web presence. Thanks!
