High Neb to Stanage

By h4rsx  
This was taken last Saturday afternoon up on High Neb in the Peaks.

I wouldn't normally upload a digitally manipulated image, but seeing as I never have, I thought I would make this a 1st, and no doubt this will be a little controversial, but don't take it too seriously, it's just a one off.

I've uploaded the original in V2 with the clear blue sky I had that afternoon and then cloned in a sky from a similar image taken the week before.

Now having said that, would you have otherwise noticed? I certainly couldn't on the full size image once I had blended it in. I would be interested to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for looking.

Wouldnt have spotted this at all. You picked a very good match as the light looks the same.

An interesting thought. I have taken 2 exposures from the same position a couple of minutes apart and then combined the best of both. Was that digital manipulation or an exposure blend??

Works really well and I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't said. I know some folks don't like things like this, but I have no problem with it at all. Surely the important thing is to create a pleasing image and I think adding the sky has made a good image even better.

Thanks Ed, Ant, mdiniz, Derek and Sue, appreciate your comments. Wink

To answer your question Derek, this is a sky taken from 1 image and then blended onto the shot you see above.

No clue how to do this sort of thing myself, but have no problem with others that can. The end result works....nuff said! Wink
