So there was some stormy weather. I managed to get some nice pics from a gas station. Worked out well enough. Tried to get the signs out of the cloud shots... but now I am not sure if I could have left them in. Oh, and the rainbow factory worked out really well. If I had gotten my rig on I might have been able to possition better on the other side of a hand rail, but it did OK!
YES! You finally made a new post. ^.^
Some of these are using HDR to try and get more color out of it, but I do not see much difference between them and the other shots.
Neither do I. I like the first picture :D
I only get raws for non-HDR, and frankly the most stunning one in the clouds is 487, which is NOT HDR. 488, 489, 492, 493, and 494 are HDR.
But I still like the first 1 ^.^ If you give it a filter.... It would be awesome :D
Yah, it also has the least obstructions from lights and signs. So they would be easy to edit out with a quck crop or even a little fudging it with copypaste nearby cloud.
In 487, the light in the pic actually works... it adds some perspective of size by being dwarfed.
In the rainbow pics, the raws offer the ability to white ballance more. Get rid of some of the gloom.
Here is 495 with some color tweaks to bring out more detail. I adjusted the tone, brightness, and contrast. By making it brighter you lose dark areas, but by also tweaking the contrast I help retain some more dark so it prevents a washed out look. Instead, I get a more vivid picture with less shadows. Now, the shadows do let the rainbow bee the brightness in the gloom, but the detail sets a different scene. So it really comes down to a choice of what you want the picture to portray.
O. O wow these are some c9ol pics :DDD
Doing a pretty blue filter there, eh?
This is so amazing O.O
|dw:1441837846846:dw| idk why but this reminds me of an mspaint i made in elementary school
awesomely blue c;
i was a true artist
Oooh... it looks better ^.^ Although the other parts on the side..... http://prntscr.com/8f3vs5
I just took some pictures yesterday for a contest.. Not sure if they're any good. Definitely not like yours o.o
really nice pictures :)
Elsa, I did a filter in pink, but deleted sky areas form it by color selecitng. This got a bit much, so I painted back in a few parts. Then I did a blue overlay to help bring out the sky more. Finally, I did one that I added a little green here and there with. All of them are soft light overlays that are mostly transparent and I did blur them to soften the hard overlap areas. I did not crop it, but that is really pretty easy to do at this point... or other methods of cleaning the pic.
About time we got a new post :D
Active skies never cease to amaze me :3
Somehow my phone converted it to a smaller size... :/
This stuff is amazing
It will be more amazing when Eric comes back to us ;-;
MIRA IS AN ACTUAL CORN
