I cropped a little but only because I rotated the image slightly to correct the horizon. I have a version with the city skyline only but it's a bit "thin". Photos as reality is becoming a difficult concept to grasp recently... Soon you will find me playing with color again and wishing I was back with b&w .
The good news is that I will take a short holiday next weekend and take some nature photos by the lake.
For the past few days, i have been unable to post comments on fb. No reply button for some reason so i hit 'return' a few times to no avail. Then there are those times that the connection would be slow when posting replies ... Hope it doesnt inconvenience you big time:)
just wanted to make sure you noticed the double posts... For sure sometimes the connection (to where ever) runs slow for what ever reason and a double punch on the post/respond/reply button will normally generate multiple posts.
Sometimes the connection just hangs in mid process and I can't do anything. When I cancel and restart the post is there... go figure. It's got to the point where I normally compose my post/reply in notepad and copy&paste into what ever I am working on (TP, FB, RRF...).
If/when I see it, I normally delete the duplicate post.
You got the sky, but it didn't go too contrasty. Last year I experimented with a heavy red filter on a day with a similar sky and hated it (the sky went almost black with cottony white clouds which looked too Ansel Adams-ish). Now I have an expensive red filter I never use
I agree with the comments about including the reality of the lower quarter of the image, which I like. Wouldn't it have been great if someone were standing in the window having a smoke or something?
with fujifilm . It really depends on the day and the situation, but a red filter can be useful (but not often used). I read that a red in combination with a PL will kill the haze... have to try that combination with ISO400...
I like the idea of someone in the window... shall I knock on the door and make a request . This weekend we have rain so the wonderful clouds are gone... but hopefully they will come back. Cold weather expected in October... Next weekend I will be at the lake for a well needed break. Maybe I take the rangefinder this trip.
