Stormy Skies

July 26th, 2009

Ah just a winter setting sun in some wild weather. Potentially a little 'busy' for a wallpaper. Your thoughts...

Amazing pic.
The kind of things you can see in movies, like Saving Private Ryan or Gladiator.

Lovely image and colours. I just wish it'd be a bit 'crisper'.

I agree we Actias on the desire for more "crispness." Even still it makes for a pleasant background. I think it's actually the lack of said crisp that keeps it from being the "too busy" you were concerned about. It all kind of oozes together into some subtle pleasantness. Thanks for this.

Thank you to everyone that voted. What a buzz!
Now, regarding the crispness - I do agree, it lacks an 'edge', but thinking about it... clouds don't really have hard edges. It might be a focus issue too - this image was using an apateur of f/5.6 with 1/320s exposure. The max I can get to is f/8 which might have helped, except then clouds would be moving anyway so they'd have motion blur.
Anyway, thank you all! Keep voting...

This is a fantastic shot, and not too busy at all... but I keep a pretty neat DT and so I don't have random files laying about. I really dig the drama of this shot. Thanks for posting!

I actually quite prefer your squishy clouds! Most cloud-heavy submissions on IFL are either overly sharpened or just naturally irritating and cluttered when they're in focus (in my opinion). Anyway, this shot has a great vibe to it. Looks huge and ominous on my little laptop. Nice work. I also really like your Summer Vines & Grampian Sunset walls.

You need to start using polarizer filter when taking shots of the sky--it's a small invenstment but will give the 'edge' to the pictures of the sky especially when shot against the sun.
