About the Image(s)

Editing: I use Photoshop CS2019 and latest RAW processing to edit the frame. In this image I tried to capture the cloudscape, rays of setting sun and the calm environment. I have enhanced the color and sharpness keeping its original mood.

For me the image, as I understand it, has possibly good content. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it is overexposed leaving too much oof the foreground and background dark and without detail. From my experience this is a scene where you want to shot a at least a 3 shot (Nom. +/- 2EV) or perhaps a 5-shot Exposure Bracket and then use PS or LR to combine them into an HDR. I believe that you will find the resulting image much more pleasing.   Posted: 11/05/2020 15:22:01

Thank you for your observation. In fact I could not expose the environment what I had seen there. I am now waiting for such sunset view again to apply bracketing for further post processing in PS with HRD.   Posted: 11/06/2020 10:43:29

Yes, foreground element also important that will affect the observability of the whole picture. For such sunset photograph, I will shot 2 or 3 shots, then adjust this image with luminosity mask, at least show up the details of the foreground's mountain and the background's cloud, and also help for enrich the sunset colors.   Posted: 11/06/2020 23:34:27

I am with the others thoughts. What did the original look like. I understand what you were trying to accomplish and their thoughts may well bring out the essence of what you were trying to capture. With this photo, since you don't have other shots, I wonder if you were to change the ski, the right side, the brightness pulls you out of the photo, possibly toning the brightness down. might bring the focus back to what you were trying to capture.   Posted: 11/07/2020 01:14:13

You captured such a unique light display. However, during storms lower level clouds can create layers light. The colors contrast nicely. The sun peeking through might be a bit overexposed (but this could be my monitor's luminosity setting).   Posted: 11/11/2020 16:12:12

This picture shows difficult to shoot because it is too bright or too dark in separated areas. However the photo displays the true color and shape of cloud layers. I agreed of all comments about helping to taking multiple exposure picture to stack them. It could avoid to black area of middle cloud and mountain with multiple different exposures.

Ditto on comments above and I think if you take multiple exposures next time you shoot this vista you will capture a wonderful image!   Posted: 11/21/2020 11:58:02
