Shades of Grey or Full Color?

What a long but good day! Roman and I were outside getting our daily dose of fun when I noticed the sunset. Sunsets are beautiful here, but not usually in the winter. In the winter, you get up early to check out the sunrise. I liked how the window showed how brilliant and bright the colors were in the sky, and by no means are my windows clean.  I didn’t do anything to this picture. It’s straight out of camera (SOOC). I was once critiqued on a picture I took of the sky here and the comments were along the lines of  “gotta love polarizing filters” “it’s a bit over saturated for my taste” etc. I had no idea what a polarizing filters was, and I had never done anything in Photoshop beyond save the pictures so I could post them and take the pictures off of the camera. The sunsets are really that beautiful here.

Sal got more work on his tattoo today. It is coming out soo nice. I’m amazed at how much detail Sal’s tattoo artist can achieve with shades of grey.  The talent that Sal’s tattoo artist has is amazing! It doesn’t hurt that he’s from here too, so when he comes home about every other week Sal get’s tattooed in the comfort of his own home. I’m totally jealous. To have such a meaningful tattoo and to be able to work on it where Gigi is, is simply special.

    I would love to see more sunset/rise pictures!! The colours in the window look wonderful, almost seems on fire actually! 😛

    I want new ink, sigh…so don’t know what I want though (been thinking about that one for about a year now)!

    I’d have told them to send their comments to God. I never want the sunsets to be less saturated. 🙂 Nice shot!

    Beautiful sunset. The colors are amazing. I don’t understand how anyone would want to see less color… ??

    I’ve always wanted to get a tattoo. But never could decide on what I want.
