Supernatural Series

By IshanPathak  
I was really disappointed with the lame response on this series so i thought to ask the wonderful critiques that whats wrong with this picture. Smile

The first thing which will come in many minds, is that it is heavily processed. So let me correct, its processed up to only 0.5 % and that also only few of the images in the series.

Processing: 5% light, then 2% Shadows. Not even a crop Smile

The original scene was, that they were clouds, exactly like these but plain white color and they were just hiding the sun, so there was a flare of warm light provided by the sun.

Used maximum Aperture, and Fastest shutter speed my camera could provide for two reasons:
1: To give my image that dark look in camera itself
2: Avoid any handshake.

I named it Supernatural Series, as im a big fan of these stuff, and these pictures remind me of those Friday the 13th scenes, when the camera shows the moon for a minute, with a clouds, dark, were floating above it.

I took many pictures, some were in mono too, and im really confused which one is better.

Not a subject for mono for me, but the main problem is content. Northing really to look at. The sky is not really tgat interesting and the sun, which has to be considered the subject here, is a white ball. I fear, for me, you can process as you wish, but the basic content is going to be the problem.

I think Paul's hit the nail on the head, Ishan. The reason these shots work so well in films is that they're there for a few seconds, and they set the mood for what follows. If you have no other subject than the moon, the clouds have to be perfection itself for the shot to be a success, rather than competent. Oddly, what's good enough for a magazine cover may not be a great picture.

V1 is better than V2, but it's open to improvement as a competent shot. I've modded to put the moon (sun) on the thirds.

It could also be a plus to introdice a really blue tone, like moonlight.

But the main thing is that you need a werewolf or a vampire on the lower right third to complete the picture!

Its a perfect shot to lay with and experiment. Overly some other shots on it, play with opacity use differetn blend modes to see what they do, - as Ive done on the mod, It needs the rest of the hollywood scene in there.

It would work well as a backdrop.
Think of this as a sky to be used in a montage in the future.
It's always good to have a 'stock' of skies.
