A window in the sky

Window in the Sky | Germany | 2017

The summer has been wild here in Germany, with scorching hot days being interrupted by massive thunder showers causing flooding and heavy damage all over the country.

This photo of some distant cumulonimbus clouds visible between two cloud layers I took with my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko14-150mm travel zoom.  Image specs are 1/320 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 200 and 135mm focal length.

Raw conversion in Lightroom CC. I cropped the image to 16×9 format. After increasing the dynamic range by manual setting of the white and black points I reduced the highlights and opened up the shadows. After increasing saturation and contrast a tad I played with the tone curves, further bringing out the details in the thunderstorm clouds. Finally I increased the luminance of the reds and oranges in the HSL panel.

I’m thinking of getting a large print from this. Haven’t made up my mind yet.

Have a good week!

  1. Nice picture Marcus, and also an interesting insight in the way you processed this picture. My ‘workflow’ as it’s mostly called in Youtube vids (oder ArbeitsflΓΌsse? πŸ™‚ ) is about the same. Playing with light and colours (or the lack of it) – I hardly never find that boring.
