Summer Sunset in Jervis Bay, NSW (Australia) |

They say the camera doesn’t lie. I disagree. Sometimes I capture a scorching sunset only to find later that the photos don’t show the vibrancy and range of colour that my eyes saw. So I’ll admit it – I have boosted the colour in these photos, if only to better reflect my wine-tinted memory of the most romantic sunset I have ever witnessed. Photos taken at Budgewoi Lake, Jervis Bay, NSW (Australia) in the summer of 2012.

  1. I agree. I took some photos yesterday of our amazing sunset but many are paler than the truth. I’ll try boosting the colour. This sunset is very beautiful. 🙂

    • Thanks Sally. Sometimes the camera is just not as clever as our brain, so we have to give them a little boost to make up the difference! 😉

  2. They look great! I think that photo editing is necessary to help show what the camera captured! Plus, when editing sunrises and sunsets you have to make them a bit more dramatic to show how magnificent they are! 😉

  3. Gorgeous photos! I agree re the touch ups. Sometimes even a good photo doesn’t do it justice.

    Photo-shopped or not, they are beautiful photos. Nice job! So, how was the wine? 😉

  7. I totally believe you! I have a picture of a sunrise in Byron Bay, Aussie land and it is untouched. Of course, I used the super professional disposable paper and plastic camera. Probably why it turned out so spiffy! (Dripping with sarcasm!? How did that camera manage such great shots? Lovely shots, thanks for sharing the eye candy.

    • It’s all in the skill of the photographer. 😉 These were taken with a point-and-shoot camera. Nature did the hard work – I just got lucky!

  9. Gorgeous! Agreed, many times the camera does not capture the beauty we see. Glad you took the time to enhance these so we can see what it looked like “in person.”

    You are right. The camera rarely gets what you can see with your own eyes. These shots are lovely.
