So I was in the mountains for a few days. I took a few photos.
One evening, there was a fabulous sunset, visible from my hotel window. Being Mr. Smartypants, I took two photos of the scene — one dark photo showing the sunset and one light photo showing the foreground. I thought I’d quickly combine them later using Photoshop.
I did, but the result was far less satisfying than the real scene.
The eyes are always the best camera.
(And how many photos of the sunset have I taken over the years? Lots.)
