Sunday Photo of the Day: "Cloud in God Light (2)"

This works better, I think:

Nikon D90, Nikkor 18-135, 32mm, ff8, 1/800 sec., ISO 200. Landscape scene mode, matrix meter with -1/3EV exposure compensation, manual Kelvin white balance set to 4950K with 5G shift. Raw (.NEF).

Post processing was straightforward. Cropped a bit, increased blacks 33, exposure increased .45EV, clarity to max. Color correction was also straightforward: lumi down on the blues, saturation down on yellows and oranges. Grad (desaturate and darken) in the top-right corner. I think I prefer this one to yesterday's effort — the layout and sky color work better. I'm still wrestling with whether I should have removed quite as much yellow.

From the Highway in the Sky series. The original image can be viewed here.
