The Heavens Above

OMG - I cannot believe that I took this yesterday afternoon.

Around 4:30 I went to Glen Island in New Rochelle and never expected to find such a dramatic cloud filled sunset. You just have to view this one large. It looks 10 times better up on my large monitor.There's nothing else I can say about this one.

I shot almost 200 photos while I was there. This had only very minimal post processing - only slight adjustments to the exposure and contrast. The color and temp is SOOC.

Shame that you cannot FAV your own photo as this does not happen often. This may be the best photo that I have put on 365 to date
WOW! amazing shot!

so if you change the contrast and exposure, doesn't that affect the color and temp? seems to me like they are all related.

@paulaag the color saturation level is the main component of color. very slight adusments were made, I INCREASED the brightness very little which would lighten the colors. the contrast as also softened again which would lead to less or softer color
posted January 25th, 2012  
absolutely amazing - just breathtaking.
