Golden Hour

In photography, the golden hour is the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky. The period of time shortly before sunrise and shortly after sunset is called the “magic hour,” especially by cinematographers.

                               C: 16 because I only used one guideline in each image.
                               CC: 20 because I put a lot of effort into this assignment
