    Re: Post your practice, tips, and eclipse shots.

    Ya'll can get the orangey color by adjusting the Temperature slider in PP... The sun is white... the orangey colors are actually not the correct color, but it's what we as humans perceive it to be...

    thx all..
    i thought of this afterwards.. i bought UV filters for all my lenses and once i put them on, i kept them on making it easy to forgot they were there. that's what happened here - i stacked the 2 ND filters on top of the UV filter without realizing it so i figured maybe the filtering out of the UV rays had something to do with the difference in color.

    It might just be that your sun is too overexposed. If I bring my exposure up to the point where I can see the clouds that were around the sun, I cannot warm the sun with the white balance. The sun stays white, but the clouds turn yellow.
    I must have a really good camera.

    We all tend to perceive that the sun is supposed to look orange because it is pretty that way, golden hour and all that jazz. Reading on sunlight and light scatter in the atmosphere makes my brain go to its happy place where advanced math and physics don't exist. Anyway, I taped my solar viewer card to my UV filter, which made it real easy to secure it. The result was ugly, but effective. Just like with any other filter or lens, some solar filters have better contrast than others too. I was just happy to get an image that looked ok. The sunspots were a surprise bonus.

    Post your practice, tips, and eclipse shots.
    I was very fortunate and my week long venture to photograph the eclipse paid off. After all is said and done I have some amazing photos, however, I still have to sit down and do some editing after getting home late last night. Even though I was dog tired and editing at midnight after a long drive home, I did have to edit the greatest solar eclipse proposal photo of all time.

    NASA posted their own photos of the eclipse. They knew the space station would cross the path of the eclipse. Here is one of them. Did any of you notice whether or not the space station was included in your own photos?

    Cool Photo. Not having access to many thousands of dollars of equipment is why I didn't bother taking me own. I can see much more in these photos.
