Working on the Sky

With cloudy flat skies, comes the need to think outside the square! Stuck with a week of shooting under think cloud cover in western Queensland, I started experimenting with the automatic exsposure bracketing, then blending manually in Photoshop. A few samples here- 28 facebookers voted the top image, 12 preferred bottom!

  2. They are both quite nice. If I am meant to choose, I prefer the top one, nice treatment. If you have a 10 stop ND filter you can also create some great effects on clouds on an overcast day.

    I am a fan of getting down low but in the top image I’d prefer to get a bit high, hehe. It would not be easy but standing on top of the fence could look great, with the leading line below you.

  3. Both great treatments and subjects.

  4. I like the top one the best but I think the light is actually nicer in the second one. If the building was a little off centre I think it would make an awesome image.
