Storm coming

By teodor
Winter can be harsh in northern parts of Norway. This day started brightly, but a storm was building in the horizon. Low skies looking like a tidewave. A few minutes later this scene was very different...

Ooohhh, this looks great, Teodor! The water in all of its different forms - still and reflective, frozen ( I think), as a low cloud, as a higher cloud - and then the coloured cabin, it all makes a wonderful image.

But I'm curious. You put this not just in the Landscape category, but also the Digitally Manipulated category. Did you do anything more than just the normal post processing? Just wondering...

Anyway, I hope to see more brilliant images like this from you!

Conrad: Thank's for the kind words! Smile

Regarding the digital manipulation; Mostly just the normal post processing like adjusting levels, hue/saturation etc. I also like to use the burn/dogde tool to enhance contrast and lead the eye. Here I have added some more drama to the skies in the horizon using Dogde and burn. The contrast was already there, but I gave it an extra nugde to give it that "spooky" look. As I said; not much, and I'm not sure where the line is being crossed with regards to "manipulation".

Ah, okay, I see - just helping the image along, as it were, but nothing really drastic. And about that line - that's probably very subjective, so it would be different for different people, I imagine.

Thanks for the info!
