    Question Which is better please?

    Here are a few screen shots from my quads' GoPro.





    I'd like to know which photo, top or bottom is better in your view? And why you like the one you like...please? The photo's are the same screen shot from the camera. Only difference is editing.....and software used. I know that pointing a GoPro Hero 3+ Silver Edition camera at the setting sun is probably too much for the processor, but I like sunsets.

    Photo #2:




    Your input will help me better understand what I need(or don't need) to do when I get back from 'playing', and maybe I can keep from making the same mistakes that I've been making in 'post'!

    Your second shot is more realistic as far as color rendition for a sunset. I took the liberty of a few slight tweaks that i think pulls it all together.
    Think in the terms a sunset gives backlit subject matter, so in this case I opened up the shadows slightly, brought the yellow luminosity down a touch, which dulled the bright white of the immediate area surrounding the sun, and give it a touch of yellow glow, which to me helps draw the attention to the whole sunset in the image rather than that bright white spot right in the middle.

    #1 lacks contrast and is some overexposed, washing out colors and giving a dull snapshot look to the overall images.
    Does anyone know of photography forum's that people Actually reply/comment to postings???

    I like Charlie's edit; I think where you want to be is about half-way between them. Not sure how much information you have to work with, and whether darkening the first or brightening the second would be better.

    good the second. less extended "dead-white" zone around the sun and general better micro and macro contrast and colour strenght.

    I like the second one. It's pragmatic. Very nice.
