This is a very pleasant image to look at. You've done a good job from both a compositional and technical standpoint. These suset shots are notoriously difficult to do without blowing out the highlights or losing shadow detail, and I don't see any of those problems here.

I really like the way that the sunlight lights up the grasses along the edge of the track, the bright yellow nicely contrasts the grey in the tracks that run parallel to it. I gan see the wind farm in the background that you mention.

These ultra-wide angle shots often tend to have too much foreground or sky in them, but you have balanced that out quite nicely.

The only thing I wonder if it could have been done a bit differently is the very right side of the image; the sky is not particularly interesting and the lighting is a tiny bit flat too. I'm not sure if that helps make the picture or detracts from it.

Anyhow, a very nice late day image. Very well done!
What do you think?

The place and composition reminds me my very first shot of sunsed I took before two days! Look: [link] I don't have any experiences with shooting sunsets, though. I need to practice it. :) That's why I am going to ask you for this: what about compensation of exposition? Do you use it for photographing sunsets?

oh it's looks definitely like a similar place. crazy! :crazy:
what do you mean with compensation of exposition?
do you mean to balance between dark and over exposed parts? :?

It's hard for me to explain in English, please check this: [link]

I meant if you use the Exposure compensation to plus or you keep it on zero. For example, if you used aperture priority and it camera would set the time 1/120 sec, if you set in manual regime the same aperture ad the time 1/60, you would use Exposure compensation +1 EV. If you would use 1/250m you would use Exposure compensation -1 EV.

ah okay. mhmh i often make 2 shots.
one for the sky and one for the ground. works fine for me.
since i'm using the cokin GND i often shoot only with one shot.
the rest is done in the digital world. =)
hope that's a good answer ;)

Yes, thank you. I used also more shots for it. But I used three - 0, +1 2/3, - 1 2/3 but next time I will try to use just two which are exposed as you said. I think it would be better. Thanks. :)
