Those are BEAUTIFUL! Amazing how the fence just seems to disappear in the second photo. My grandfather always used to say, "Red sky at night..." (I think it's a pretty universal saying). =)

Craver Vii said...

Nice!! I find it helpful to see comparison shots like this. Thanks for that.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Two great shots Imac... We've had bright blue skies today.. What a differance to last week. This weather is weird at the moment and by reading other blogs we are not on our own.
Catch you tomorrow. I'm off to bed now.

DeeMom said...

Hard to decide which one I like better...Awesome...mine will be up on our Friday,

DigitalShutterMania said...

Imac, Oh they are awesome.

Uma por Dia said...

I will try this! I want a pink sky too.

ancient one said...

I like them both!!

dot said...

Both are beautiful! I couldn't decide which I liked best.
I'm adding your name to Mr. Linky.

Kostas said...

And the two are splendid.
The colours in the sky impressively!

Jim said...

I like them both, big difference though in each.

Sandy Carlson said...

Interesting, the effect of the flash on the pink in the sky. These are wonderful. So festive!

Sharon said...

wow! Beautiful color.

Sharon said...

BEAUTIFUL. I love the mix of pink and blue! Great catch!

Carole said...

Oh, I love this time of morning! You've captured it perfectly.

Andrea said...

They are both beautiful. Great shots.

Debbie365 said...

Ooh. That's tough. I like them both, but the one with flash really made the colors in the sky pop!

Lilli & Nevada said...

like the difference in each one.

Misty Dawn said...

Great comparison and beautiful photos. My Sony has a 'nightframing' setting which uses a flash and creates some great sunset photos. I'll miss that feature when I get my Canon.

Petunia said...

Sky watch friday lesson! Good to know and it is smart to take a few photo to find the perfect picture!

Juliana RW said...

all great combination color ;)

Will you visit my Sky Watch #2 Thanks.

Ida said...

I like both of them. :)
Nice colours.

RuneE said...

I would have dropped the flash in this setting at once.

"Half-power" if I for some reason wanted a detail in the foreground.

A neat example!

Pernille's ting og tang said...

I looooooove it!!!!!! Beautiful!:)

evlahos said...

Fantastic, even I prefer the flash one, both of them are excellent. well done

Marie said...

I love the photo without flash!

Truls said...

The SkyWatch without the flash was the one I liked best.

ArneA said...

With flash is best. Makes more life into the photo

Angie said...

Hi Imac
Both thses photos are stunning, I wouldn't like to have to choose between them!

Angie said...

Er, sorry about the spelling!

RUTH said...

An interesting comparison....I think I like the first the best.

Gail's Man said...

At least the sun's coming out. It does make a great deal of difference to photography.

Thanks for your continued visits and comments.

Paulie said...

Each is beautiful in its own way. I was still trying to catch up with ABC Wed. and got to comment on this one also at the same time. (Just 20 more to go from Wednesday!)

Randi said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this colorfully sky watch!!

Edmund (the explorer) Nesbitt said...

Dragonstar said...

The flash photo makes the sky colours quite different, and it has an almost surreal look.
The second has beautiful silhouettes, and I'm a sucker for those!
Beautiful illustration of the difference technique makes.

gaz said...

that sky is very impressive.

Bing said...

I like the without flash photo better.... Beautiful!

the teach said...

Two totally different effects! The purple adds so much to the beauty of the photos! Thank you for sharing! :)

DarylE said...

I so dislike using a flash that I found a way to fiddle with the ISO .. these are wonderful examples of how light changes everything

lv2scpbk said...

Wow! Beautiful sky.

Small City Scenes said...

Interesting----I have never thought of using the flash on a sunset or sunrise. I may have to. great pictures anyway you look at it. MB

photowannabe said...

Gorgeous sky. The colors are spectacular. I like it with the flash.

Joyismygoal said...

awesome purple majesty i love when I can catch such natural beauty

Mike said...

Takes the breath away imac!

smilnsigh said...

Wow! I suppose the *purist* would say, without flash. But they are both beautiful.

I love the second shot better, i like using my camera without a flash i take much better photo using the natural light..;) Love the look of the sky very colorful..;)

Willard said...

It is more natural without the flash, but the flash shot has some of the most awesome colors. Both are great!

Siani said...

I love the comparison shots. Usually, if I use the flash on sunrise/sunset pics, it tends to leach the colours out, but you've had no such trouble - your skills are obviously greater than mine :).

david mcmahon said...

Second shot gets my vote, maestro - but you knew I would say that!

Kerri said...

I love them both! Awesome shots Imac!!

Andrée said...

Wow. The colors! They are just so stunning! I hope you don't want me to say which I prefer because that is impossible.

zakscloset said...

wow. you just demonstrated the science of light much better than my professors did. great sky shots!!

GAWO said...

Hard to decide which one I like best.

JAM said...

I like them both, but the one with the flash best.

I love how modern cameras have such sophisticated flash so that both the foreground and background are properly lit.
