I dont usually like to shoot alternatives of the same composition. I generally pick the best shot from the trip and only post that. On thise occasion however I feel like the two shots, this and [link]
are really quite different, despite being taken within 20 minutes of eachother and from exactly the same location.
Its particularly interesting to me just how much the colours changed in such a short space of time, both images have the same whitebalance. One of many reasons why shooting in light like this is so exciting.
You might also notice that I have included the sun in this one. I had some problems with flare. Heres a tip on how to solve the problem.....Repoint the camera to a new position so that the location of the flare moves relative to the scene, then copy that flare free area over the main exposure, its very simple. Subtle flare can be fixed with a curves adjustment layer.
Processing was an exposure blend and some saturation.
