Today I went back to the Griffith observatory. Today's shoot did not go so well. 1st I hate driving in LA, 2nd I had to park 30 minutes away and walk up the hill and 3rd it was hot and there were no clouds. I waited for the sun to completely set so there would be some color in the sky. To help bring out more color in the sky I used a 3 stop graduated ND filter held in by a Cokin filter holder. I shot this photo with a Tokina 11-16 f2.8, my settings were ISO200 f8 1/13 at 16mm. It has been over 2 years since my last trip to the observatory I was hoping I would come away with better photos this time.
