I borrowed a friends 90mm Tilt-Shift lens to capture this minimalist scene. So many times recently I've been out with my camera and been met with uninspiring blue skies and less than ideal light. But it's often an interesting challenge to see what you can make of a scene despite it not being your original vision.

I am liking the end result. Your description implies this was composed as found, but the surrealism of the resulting image makes me wonder if it isn't a digital composite?

Note: this isn't a criticism.

The composition is unaltered (other than the square crop of course). I simplified the sky and have done some work to control the light as well as adding the gradients of course. Grin

There's some banding introduced on upload it seems. Quite hard to prevent when using subtle gradients, even after adding noise.

I agree about the banding - ive experienced the same problem, but the prints tend to come out smooth. well done by the way.
