Tried some dramatic PP on wide angle shot of clouds and beach. K20D, Sigma 10-20 EX @ 10mm, F8, 1/250, ISO 200.

Very nice. Great rendering on the clouds.

I really like my Sigma10-20mm too. They are certainly wide!

It sure looks artificial, kind of. But I like it!

(And I do want a superwide prime. The Pentax DA* 10 mm Limited.)

Very interesting, what was your PP technique for this?

The clouds were quite dramatic anyhow. I considered using a CP filter but light was fading and this lens gives great sky contrast without any filter. PP was just heavy handed with contrast slider, some extra colour (saturation)so sand and vegetation wasn't lost in the gloom. Would have adjusted the exposure a bit (plus 1.15ev) and fill light. I always shoot in RAW. Software is Adobe camera raw 4.4 and Elements 6.

cheers

I like your photo a lot, Beach Boy-

The effect is wonderful. I would have liked a touch more brightness, but I think that is just personal taste. Its a job well done that should be enlarged, framed, and put in the entry hall so that all can admre it.

I took this photo at sunrise this morning from the back deck with a k200 and the Pentax 50-200mm lens at ISO 800 due to the low light. It has a bit of mood, but it would be much better, quality-wise,later in the day.

Nice shot beachboy2. You did a great job in processing the image.

Did you use two exposure of the same image or did you just adjust the color from one?
