It doesn't look apocalyptic to me at all - dramatic and stunning would describe that shot better.Nice work, Bahadir
I'm so glad to hearfrom you, Toshi!

Yeah, the word 'apocaliptic' may suggests a disastrous meaning,which made me hesitate awhile as I was about to entitle this pic. Yet, I relied on the mystic meaningof the word referring 'relevation'owing tothe strong light peepingthrough the huge volumes of cloudsunder a most chaotic sky, across the entire image, along the asphalt, to hit the edifices to the right...

Again, thanks for your kind feedback!

Really cool shot! Nice pano job! How did you do it?
Thank you for your appreciation!

Well, the first and most important stepwas, not to feel lazyso as to shoot five decent pics. from my balcony :GI shifted to manual focusing andset it to infinitywhile deciding a decentsetting at M mode to avoid overexposure. The restwas, as you know, opening the downloaded images in PS and manually stitching them and then some pp. to brighten up the darkimage due to underexposure intended for avoiding blown areas...I'd welcome anyfurther questions : )

This is a very dramatic image - is very unsettling and disturbing. Many pictures employ a chiarscaro technique, however there are several aspects of this image that make it even more powerful than just a simple contrast of light and dark. One is the nature of the darkness of the clouds- to me there darkness does not seem natural, it seems polluted and menacing - the residue of industrial waste/pollution and human carelessness. The light in the image also takes on its own special characteristics, rather than being the stereotypical "cheery" type of light/sunshine, the light is urgent in its intensity, and seems to be aggressively slicing through the dark cloudslike a sword, attempting to overpower and the dark clouds.The terrestial environment reinforcesthe battle in the sky, as the darkened landscape has dismal, destitute, and lifeless features, while the lighted landscape has an optimistic quality to it and serves as a glimpse of a world not defined by the conflict occurring in the image. Also, the near absence of vehicles on the highway, and boats in the sea, further accentuates the tumultuous nature of the image, as people tend to hide inside during severe storms and not driveor take boats to sea. In short, a unique and particularly relevant representation of the common theme of an apocolyptic battle between good and evil. The image is very powerful in that it plays on the light/dark contrast in such a way that one is overcome by a feeling of apprehension as the ruthless clouds have the quality of a descending, mythological monster about to swallow and annihilate the world below it.
