The Other Pink Cap Cloud Day

Post by LindaShorey » Fri Jan 05, 2018 11:46 pm

I totally forgot this one had such a detailed foreground (different day, different location from the one posted yesterday to showcase). I guess with a scene like this, one has to take it on faith that I didn't add the color in pp :)

Please let me know what you think about the processing. #1 has a lot of watercolor effect, which is how the foreground looks so bright. There was actually no sunlight yet on anything but the mountain and its cap.

#2 is as close to the actual conditions as I could make it. Is there anything you'd change to enhance, but keep the more realistic feeling? Feel free to post an edit or advise.

Many thanks!

Crop the top of the first and you have a pano Rockwell, keep the top and you have a pretty-nuclear-explosion.

I really like the first, I just wish we could see more of the mountain. It really is lovely! S-

Thank you, Steve. You've brought up a good point about the lack of mountain view - what's normal for me is frustration for someone else.

That is a cloud to die for. Beautiful color and form.

I like the watercolor version except for the oranges in the foreground buildings, which seem to clash with the pinks and pull attention from them. I'd try tinkering with the orange and try to pull it more to reds or maroons, and subdue it enough to make it play nicely with the Star Of The Show.

Terrific observation and suggestion, Minnie. Thanks so much.
