Default Gallery: preDusk or preDawn

This does not include night, sunset, or sunrise shots. Very low light works.

Very nice Travis, but do we have to do every single possible Gallery in the same week?

I can't keep up!

My one vote says let each one play out, then get another going. Stop to smell the roses.

We live in a fast pace world and we don't want to fall behind. Let the French sit and smell the roses. no offense just USA humor.

EVERYBODY smells the roses!

Aesthetics is by nature not fast paced. If one loads up with bunches of images one doesn't get a change to appreciate any of them.

Also, there is not behind here to worry about.

Wish I had more in this category - a 2009 resolution.

It would ALSO BE NICE if Admin would add this genre under "Categories" and perhaps be a bit (a lot) more stringent on what is getting in under "Night Shots". There are more, of course - buildings, railroad equipment/ infrastructures and /or freight /passenger cars to name some main categories. B&W would be great, too.

Anyway...

Here are 2 of my best;

This type of lighting is one of my favorites which I have almost have none of. It is also one of top priorities to work at.

I don't want to include the full on sunset in your face type shots or the bright glint shots.

Pre-dawn and pre-dusk would be from dark (night) to when the top of the sun just creeps over the horizon. Atleast this is what I meant. I also included photos as examples.

That first one is a full on sunset and the second one is a glint shot.

Sounds like you're trying to split hairs to come up with a new classification of shots.

Based on the posts, it appears everyone knew what you intended. I just found the wording humorous, kinda like saying pre-sunset for daylight shots.

Just looked it up to be sure

dawn - first daylight, so that would end when the top of the sun creeps... I don't think you mean pre-dawn as that is dark and I don't think indistinguishable from good old fashioned night.

dusk - "darker stage of twilight" - so this would exclude the lighter stage of twilight which follows sunset. Would that be called "pre-dusk"???? Ha ha.

At any rate, these are "just words" (ouch! I love words!) and I think that the original examples are clear in that you are looking for stuff where there is some light in the sky but not the sort of light that immediately precedes sunrise or sunset.

Of course, no reason for anyone to follow the guidance precisely (Mitch's aren't even close!) - I myself wasn't thinking distant skyscrapers in mine but only nearby, but all the skyline stuff was interesting to see and I ended up linking to at least one myself. Fun to see shots.

These are low light. Cloud cover half the sun earth covering the other half. The glint shot was dark enough and it also has that dusk feel.

So dawn would be when the sky is lighting up but the sun is not visable yet. Dusk and twilight would work. I did screw that up. pre-dusk would be twilight. The last image I posted is the real feel I am going for as the others fit the bill.

This is the inspiration shot of this gallery. I love the very end of day shots and shots from the early morning before the sun rises. These types of shots are another area I have started to concentrate on myself. They are also hard to capture and there is a small window of time that they can even be captured in. They are hard to capture because of the low light levels and moving object. Most of these shots work best when shooting at a distance or the subject stops or slows long enough to make it work without blurring. The shot below gives me a sense of the end of a long hard day.

Thanks Travis. I guess it works for both pre-dawn and fog.
