Best bring the washin' in..

By sslovetub
Amazing squall that came out of nowhere during August of last year at the Whitby Folk Festival. Luckily had my pocket camera. The wind and rain that followed shortly after had to be seen to be believed.
Shot in colour, minor level adjust and a touch of dodge & burn.
Opportunist photo and the shot was dictated by the table I was stuck at. Wish I could have lost the hut on the right Sad

Thats one hell of a shower on the way, looks like a well in B&W..Good lighting and capture...The hut could probably be cropped out...

I tried a couple of crops but every which way I found that losing the right or bottom of the pic detracted from the shock & awe vibe of the little houses and their impending wet doom Smile

Like it. Great atmosphere here. Shame it's suffered a lot of compression in the upload, but all the basics are there: Interesting subject, good exposure, decent light etc etc...


Oh yeah, click, and welcome to EPZ.

I see what you're saying about the hut on the right, but I don't feel it takes anything away from the image. That's ana amzing sky and would imaging there's a storm in there somewhere. Works great in mono and the detail of the buildings shine though beneath that anngry sky. Not bad for a dimage pocket camera!

I agree with cadman. The hut definitely gives depth...and I love depth in photographs. the hut alone.
