I went blue with this one. There is no HDR here. The idea was to emphasize the evening. The deep blue in the sky reminds me of the song Silent Night for some reason, and I keep picturing a manger scene somewhere. The word “deep” keeps coming to mind.
I like the way this is framed. I strengthened the vignetting purposefully. The semicircle of orange in the sky creates concentric circles pulling your eyes to the farm houses on the horizon. The photo isn’t so much about the houses though, as it is the funnel effect of the transition from black to blue to warm oranges and finally to nearly white at the epicenter of the sunset.
