Chaos in the sky
I played with a bunch of the images that I screwed up in camera on Monday night. It took a bit of time experimenting, trying to decide the direction that I wanted to take this image. It never would have worked in color, at least not without the extra bracketed exposures. I tried and the colors shifted badly and the tones started flattening and noisier the more I tried to bring out the detail that I otherwise would have wanted.
I think from the final image how much chaos there was in the sky. If skies can have a mood, this was an angry sky. This was the tail end of the storm as it was moving from left to right. If I would have done a panorama you would have been able to see the leading edge of the storm. For those of you from Edmonton, the tail end of the storm is over Sherwood Park.
I’ve been toying with the idea of trying my hand at more black and white images if only because sometimes what doesn’t work in color practically screams in black and white. It’s two different ways of processing the same image. Who knows? I surely won’t sell this one but then again, I never shoot anything with the intention of trying to make money from it.
