Welcome to POTN imostrap..

Once sun has risen I will generally shoot a couple different images for the highlights, (not to blow them out) Blinkies, and a couple for the shadows, and then blend

Bianchi - Would you mind sharing how you go about blending multiple images? Are there any tutorials you'd recommend? The picture you posted is really well done and you have some incredible work on your flickr.

Thank you jmh
Expose for highlights in one shot, and then expose for shadows in another

Here's a link to a page of video's for blending images

https://www.youtube.co​m …Blending+images​+using+LR6 (external link)

As for your last picture, when the sun is setting behind your subject you will get a silhouette, as you did. To have the foreground in view, you would have to have an exposure that will blow out the sunset, but properly expose for the foreground to be in view, and then blend it with the sunset shot that was properly exposed.. Then your foreground would be properly illuminated and in view with your backround (Sunset)

This is very easily done in LR 6, no need for Photoshop
What software are you using to edit, also I highly recommend to shoot in Raw for blending purposes.

Thanks so much for your comment!
I just newly bought this D750 & took in Jpet format :P
& I don't know much about photo editing, just use the photoscape software. I think I have to learn light room :)

I second the recommendation of learning Lightroom. It's not only great for making adjustments, but it's a great for organizing and printing as well. It's a nice all-in-one solution.

Nice images guys! My workflow is pretty much the same as mentioned above, depending on my mood. Sometimes just expose for the highlights and get a silhouette, and other times blending multiple exposures.

Edit: If you're going to be blending exposures, I'd suggest shooting RAW instead of JPEG. The files will give you lots more room for adjustment later.

You have yourself a very nice camera, you will soon learn photo editing is equally important as is getting great captures with your camera.

Let me recommend you visit George Jardins website, and buy his how to video's on LR, both the Library & Develop video..

The Library video is extremely important in setting up your photo files, otherwise you may be spending months undoing all the mess you created storing your files improperly.

The develop video will be having you use all the tools LR has to offer to edit your files.

Disclosure : I have no affiliation with GJ. Someone recommended him to me when I first started. I learned LR through his video's

Happy Shooting & Editing :-):-):-) and begin shooting in RAW, as you can do a lot more with them during processing

-ALWAYS SHOOT RAW for difficult lighting situations, like sunsets.

-You don't always have to include the sun in the frame, the colored clouds and warm light can be just as beautiful.

-When you do put the sun in the frame, the result will depend a lot on how harsh the sun is, the lower to the horizon, the softer, and some haze can help too. Some days will be better than others, evey sunset is different.

-Don't always use a wide angle, a telelens will make the sun look larger (it seems like you already know this)

-Protip for sunsets with buildings: stay a little longer after the sun is down and wait for the lights to go on.

Some practicing what I preach, at Santorini.
