Remember yesterday I said 10 minutes later it rained like I'd never seen it rain before? This was after 9 minutes & 50 seconds...
The small church of St. Lawrence, Wynford Eagle, Dorset.
It suffered terrible skewed verticals due to wide angle distortion, I couldn't back off any further due to a large wall behind me, so a good deal of faffing about in PS was required to sort them.
this sky suits the image Kris
Great sky. Nice comp.
Does it still look like it's been shunted from behind though?
Reckon it would have been best to have kept it off the bottom third on a wide.
Love the sky on this very dramatic.
Great shot, like the moody sky and light
Wonderful shot full of emotion. It needs a story to go with it. Yvonne
Great sky! I like the composition and colours! Works fine for me!
Very nice comp and great sky.
moody light and really dramatic
Nice work love the sky really moody .
A real moody shot, the dark clouds suit the subject - nice one.
Love the light on the church and the dark background.
Really nice picture. Bags of atmosphere, you really caught the light well for the church.
Very atmospheric, great colours and good picture.
With the angry cloud swallowing the church........ looks like some one's about to pay a visit. Great shot.
Technically you're dead right Keith but I quite like the effect, gives it a slightly surreal look I reckon, which may have been what I was after.
I may post a real, 'in yer face' version tomorrow.
Stunning sky Kris and well composed and exposed shot.
Great dramatic sky,I think I would have cropped some off the sky.Beautiful lighting.
Great shot, fantastic sky!
A great and dramatic sky for this
quality work, Kris!
what do I know?
Lol - a damn site more than me I'll wager.
Cheers for the RC folks.
What you do, is shoot the middle part so that the church and stone is right int he middle of the frame. That will make the verticals vertical. Then take one above and below and stitch them. This is well layed out and that sky is awesome!
That certainly is a stormy sky!
Cheers Pat & Cathy.
Think I'll stick to making Airfix kits in future...
Love that sky and the image itself is a cracker!!!
Well done and seen
This light on the church make this whole photo stand out!
You could try PTLens for correcting distortions - might be a bit more "natural"
Like the comp and clouds, but there's something odd with the gravestone and it's lines!
My kind of shot.
Did you do a fair bit of dodging on the church? It looks fine to me but I'm just trying to work out how you got it so bright.
Cheers for the comments and advice.
A smidge of dodging Ian but I also masked off the foreground / church and used a touch of the old 'curves mid tones punch' trick. Saying that, it was pretty brightly lit which was exacerbated by the dark clouds behind.
Very moody and atmostpheric! well taken indeed.
