The Sky of My Dreams

The Sky of My Dreams

Another quick shot. After missing a few good photo opportunities last week because I had left my camera at home, I started taking it with me everyday again. The clouds going to work last Friday were awesome, so I drove to the top of the nearest parking garage and took a few photos of the sky and clouds. The structures in the foreground were intentional. I wanted the pieces of our modern world to show up in the shot to give a feeling of loneliness. The clouds were actually moving through pretty quickly, so the sun didn’t stay hidden behind clouds for long. I got the effect I was looking for, but a few moments later, it was gone.

I did a lot of curves adjusting to bring out the blue and increase the contrast. There is another shot from that day that I might use to experiment with HDR, but I haven’t decided if I want to or not. This shot worked fine without HDR, and I am inclined to be lazy and not do HDR. Besides, I don’t have Photoshop.

You can view this image on Zooomr with a geotag. I’ve taken other shots from this location before.
