The key to shooting better sunset photographs!
When you are browsing through some of the photography communities online including the dA waterscapes gallery you see quite a lot of photographs of sunsets with their photographers wondering why their photographs are not getting the same amount of reaction as others. Most of the time, it has not got anything to do with big trade secrets but actually quite a few simple things you can do to make your sunsets better.
We all started from the beginning where we just took a photo right at the sun that was setting down over the water and that is the typical error in sunset photography and it is knowledge of the composition and how the camera works that can help getting a better photograph.
The first thing is really the composition. If you just set up your camera and take a photo then you will likely only get a photo once in many thousand times. The first thing you want to do is to look at your scene, find out if you have any interesting objects that you could possibly inclu

INFRARED COMPETITION - Supported by R72 Club
I’m pleased to announce the start of a new Infrared Photography competition here on :devart: - open to all infrared artists in our community and supported by the R72 Club :iconR72:
The theme for this competition is simpily  -   “INVISIBLE LIGHT – YOUR FINEST WORK”  - taking a retrospective look at all the wonderful Infrared images here on DA and inviting people to submit the finest I.R work from their galleries (new or Old). If we make a success of this first competition the intention is to make it a regular event with further ‘themed’ contests for new images.
Apart from looking for the finest artistic images presented,  the judges will also be looking for images that best show the artists grasp of infrared technique and their ability to use this creatively.

Countries of the World - United Kingdom
It's been a while since the last publication of the Countries of the World series. Today, I'd like to show you beautiful features of UK. After some thinking I decided to slightly change the arrangement so it would be more suitable to promote art. It's going to be divided into two general sections: Cities and Nature. I'll dispose of National Symbols section.And the last but not the least - no more image overloading, I'll try to give you just the right amount of photos so you can enjoy each and every piece separately.
Already done articles from the series:

waterscapes-club: February Features
In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind even to his most essential needs for survival, water, along with other resources, has become the victim of his indifference.   ~Rachel Carson
Every month waterscapes-club asks their members to suggest photos to feature in the news and the club's journal. Suggestions for the next month are to be in by the 15th of each month. These are this month's features.

PhotographyAPN---Professional Quality!
The Photography>Animals, Plants & Nature gallery is rolling!
Rolling with what you all might ask?
Lately, DA has been seeing a massive influx of new professional and professional-quality photographers joining the #1 art site on the internet! After all, who can blame them!
The quality these photographers exhibit in their works is simply amazing and almost all (sans maybe a few, who just haven't been seen yet) manage to take Nature Photography as a whole to the next level. Exposures so dead on that it would make Galen Rowell cry!
So today, join me on a journey with viewing and checking out these photographers galleries. Each thumbnail contained will floor you, and each of these images is from a different photographer! Quality, which not only demands to be seen and noticed, but will inspire you as well!
