Shot was taken at 7PM with Derek Von Briesen I didn't own a ND filter and could tell my sunset sky was going to "clip" so I got my focus and comp., then completely underexposed the shot. My RAW image was black. Processed in LR when I moved the exposure slider...this beautiful scene emerged ! At the end of this summer I could afford "1" ND grad. filter after I had learned to gracefully avoid these problems. Doing "without" made me a better Photographer in the long run
