Front Row Sunset

Another example of "ninja street photography" for when you're too shy to let people know you're taking photos of them in public. It might be easy to miss in the shot, but there's a couple here watching the sunset. One of the things you can almost always find at Marquette's Presque Isle. I was also trying to get the roots of the tree in the shot (the tree can't have many more years before it falls into the lake.) 

Shots like this are a big challenge, because the light is directly in front of the lens, so you get very dark background areas. It's difficult to get the right mix of settings to see everything you want. A bit of editing in Photoshop can help, but you have to mostly catch it at the time for it to work. It's a bit hit or miss, but I've had a few similar to this one turn out to be almost my favorite (when it works).
