Challenge: Skyscape II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Sky
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L IS USM
Location: Sydney, Australia
Date: Sep 9, 2014
Aperture: 8.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/6400
Date Uploaded: Sep 9, 2014

The sky was very interesting for several minutes so I pulled over and snapped a few shots. I had some shots with birds and planes in them but I thought they may take Way from the skyscape purity. I entered this one as I particularly like the the complimentary colours of the blue and orange in the cloud near the sun.

Very little done in regards to editing with adjustments to levels and slight boost of saturation. No dodge or burning done at all.

This image has some great bones. I love the darkness and high drama in the photo. Compositionally I think this image works well, there is some nice movement and almost leading lines with some of the clouds, so my eye was drawn through the entire image.

Technically I think this shot is very good. There is detail in all of the dark areas, and the I like the depth and contrast in your image. The shades of brown and that bit of blue really made the image to me.

Your image certainly met the challenge, and you scored well. Looking at the highest scores in the challenge, most of those had a little wider range of color - but to me yours is equally as dramatic - and I would say I actually enjoy the asymmetry and drama of your sky even more than some of those on the first page. (The sun spot might be blown out, but frankly to me that just added to the image.)

Nice job I say.
