Using collages - is it useful??

Hi all,Now, as part of improving my photoshop skills I tried something new. Icollected more than 10 photos I took on the same night and merged them into one as a collage. I took these photos in New York (actually New Jersey as I was on the other side of the Hudson :)) during 4th of July. I could have upload the skyline photo as solo and maybe one or two fireworks images. Eventually I decided to make this collage.It took me some time as you have to be super precise and calculate the needed... continue reading

Dealing with the sky in landscapes

When photographing landscapes with big portions of the image being the sky, correct exposure is not trivial. Usually the sky is much brighter than the rest of the image. If leaving the camera on automatic exposure, what usually happens is the land gets a correct exposure but the sky is overexposed and shows white in the photo. A white sky is dull.How to compensate for this? One way is to use HDR technique, with multiple exposures and combining them automatically or manually through Photoshop. It... continue reading

Goodbye noisy skies with "distorted pixels"!

Hi Dreamers!I guess I am not alone tackling the issue of denoising the skies in outdoor shots,especially when it comes to night photography. Even with photos taken at nominal ISO values (ISO-200 for my camera) I found it often frustratingly noise-prone to make the sky brighter and richer by boosting the levels/contrast.Here are a couple of examples, where my first attempts to "improve" the skies led to refusals initially. That time I knew little about the origin of "distorted pixels" and... continue reading

Some weeks ago I got this image of a beautiful sky accepted. I know there are thousands of pictures of a sky, however when I saw this beautiful sky one morning in September this year I could not resist. (thanks to the reviewers for still letting it through!) I live in a high-rise building so I could take a picture without any obstacles in the way. What makes this shot special is the use of a wide angle which I can highly recommend for shooting images of the sky. It often captures well the impression... continue reading
