Drama in the clouds — 26 Comments

  1. I agree with Molly – this looks like a giant wingspan, or even an ANGEL! And both photos reveal two beauties: the first shows such a deep blue sky, almost unimaginable for some of us, and the second really highlights the clouds. Oh Mary, you are having FUN! What do you have planned for this lovely Friday?

  2. Yes, it does look like a giant bird, great images. I like both, the original and edited. Have a happy weekend!

  4. You did good Mary. Of course it goes without saying, the most important step was visualizing what you saw in the clouds at the start. Great job and thanks for the link to visual I just got a free trial of Lightroom 5 but I need to work on learning the ins and outs of it.

    • I love Lightroom and use it all the time. There are a lot of great tips on a site called, They have presets too which are great. Adobe also has some good tips and tricks for LR and photoshop.

  5. Yes I see the bird in the clouds, nice job on the process, i will have to check out this presets being applied to adjustment brush, its a tool I rarely use but it looks like it has more capability than I realised :)

  6. I really like the adjustments to the rocky hills, and the blue of the sky is lovely. I was hoping for a bit more white pop in the clouds though. I do like the shape the clouds made, really neat. :)

  7. I think you did a wonderful job with this! Sometimes it’s disappointing when a photo doesn’t capture what we saw with our eyes…so I love editing to bring back the drama. I’m starting to use it a bit more, though I have a lot to learn and need to get some good software.

  8. Mary, I am soo delighted that you put presets to use in the LR filters! Isn’t it a great find?? And I love the drama that you recaptured in the sky. I also love how the hills look kissed in golden sunlight after your application of adjustment brush. What a great transformation!
