Sunset along the Duck Pass Trail

Another photo I shot last fall in Mammoth Lakes -- on the Duck Pass Trail -- that I forgot to process until now. As sunset shots go, I'm really pleased with this one. I shot it with my Nikon D5100 and Nikon DX 10-24 wide angle lens. 

The silhouetted trees just feel like they're in the right place, giving the image some balance. Maybe I shouldn't have lopped the top of the tree off at left -- I could have shot wider. Normally that could be a fatal blow to a photo such as this. But I think this one works anyway. 

Camera, Settings & Processing: Nikon D5100, Nikon DX 10-24 wide angle lens at 24mm, ISO 400, 1/80th shutter, f/4.5. Shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom 4, using some of the tools that are part of the VSCO slide film preset pack
