I planned on doing a night shoot tonight. I wanted to take some photos of moving traffic at night, and I was about to go when I looked out of the window and saw this lonely, strange-shaped cloud.
This cloud required four shots in total, and is my first proper attempt at stitching photos together using Photoshop Elements. It's so easy to use and does virtually all of the work for you. I left the surrounding trees underexposed as I liked the silhouette effect, and I also like the way they bookend the image and fill the gap at the bottom. It really was a clear sky except for this rogue cloud, which is why I was drawn to it. Unfortunately the image size above doesn't do it justice.
I'm not a cloud expert by any measure. However, doing a quick Google search on types of clouds would suggest that the cloud is a stratus of some sort, but I'm probably wrong. So if you know, please tell me because I'm interested. Geeky I know!
