Stormy Weather



With most of the brilliant fall colors fading fast I thought I would try some B&W. I would like some opinions and critiques of this shot. This is my first real attempt at B&W. For some reason I like it.

Very dramatic sight indeed! I remember your effort of capturing the best possible capture of the well at your back garden...nowhere's is a significant heap while retaining the same camera and the font I only find the overexposed foreground to be a bit distracting,which is easy to fix by using the burn tool and plus a slight local sharpening. Hope my quick edit makes some sense:

Thanks for the help bahadir,



I my photo club their teaching us to expose to the right to capture more dynamic range.

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/expose-right.shtml

Which I really don't like much, producing underexposed or blown out highlights. On this image the Histogram clearly shows it is exposed to the left and two of the channels being clipped (3&4) Exposure Compensation -1. I just ordered the book "Understanding Exposure", hope that will help.
