Night Sky - Portencross

By Irishkate  
How do I follow yesterday's surprising success?
This was taken on the same night at Portencross overlooking Arran.
There wasn't a sunset as such but we did have some great sky detail.
This is one exposure edited in Photoshop. I'll upload an HDR also and you can let me
know which appeals most.
So now to say a huge thank you for more votes than I've had for ages
on the first day and an even bigger thank you to Nezih (nonur),Nigel (Nigeve!),
Michaela_Solway, Cliff (Nikonuser) and my Irish friend Billy(williamsloan) for
for generously giving me their User Awards - many thanks to you all.
Have a good Sunday.

A good fiery sky here Kate.
And I can't comment on your HDR shot.
I can't see any Heavy Duty Rust anywhere in your shot !!
(And my image would absolutely BOMB in the club.It is only a ''record shot''.I shall upload an image on Monday which is more representative of my camera club work.)

Portentous sky, I like V1, to me it doesn't matter that is not sharp everywhere, as it is perfectly focused where it matters, that orange cloud.

V1 by a mile, the white rim around the silhouetted rocks if is very distracting in V2. Gorgeous sky beautifully captured.

No doubt in my mind Kate - V1.
25 Aug 2013 9:04AM
Two interesting and quite different versions!
I do like V2 very much - I must try using HDR - it's always good to experiment.
I don't have a favourite - both versions have their merits and both appeal to me very much indeed.
So, it's half a vote each, today!SmileSmile
Great stuff, Kate!

Lovely shot, Kate and for me the smoother looking V1 is better. Grin

Two wonderful captures. I like them both.
25 Aug 2013 11:53AM
Kate, lovely fact stunning sky.....v1 for me. Have had a play with HDR but never quite got it right. But always nice to try something new, like you asked about filters. Try something out if doesn't work try another.......Big-stopper any time of day.

The comp is spot on as it lets the sky be, quite rightly, the main focus. Regarding which version, I am for V1. I am not a huge fan of HDR on landscape pics as it is hard to avoid all the halos and I only think HDR works on indoor shots and enclosed spaces.WinkGrin

V1 is an excellent capture the HDR gives that bit more detail and impact

V1 for me Kate, I must agree with Mick HDR stands for heavy duty rust!
