On his website the author explains the reasons behind this eBook. Adding that "many photographers will often note that their sunrise and sunset images rarely represent the scene they observed. By detailing the steps I go through to create my images – both in the field and in the digital darkroom – I explain why this is so, and more importantly, how to transcend the disparity between your view and your results, allowing you to create realistic images of this beautiful light."

He shows how to edit them in the digital darkroom, explaining in detail his options.
