Sunset at Temple of Light

Last night I scooted over to the Temple of Light at Ananda Village near my home to see if I could capture the colors of sunset with the Mavic Drone.  Bear in mind the sensor is really small.  I flew up and scouted a few possibilities.  The other challenge is location of trees to the east of the temple discourages a roaming drone so I carefully maneuvered Hawkeye (name of my Mavic Pro I) to see what I could get.  Took a few shots in Raw (DNG) and also some B roll video for future.

Sunsets are tricky timing especially when you are flying a drone with finite battery power.  I edited it a bit in Lightroom and photoshop including straightening the trees (Free Transform) because the wide angle lens distorts the edges.  adjusted the clarity, and levels.  The noise in silhouettes and shadows was due to high ISO needed.  I reduced a little in LR.

Here is finished shot.
