Dragon Cloud

Dragon Cloud

THE PHOTO:
You know when you look at the clouds in the sky and suddenly one takes on the shape of something you put a name to? Well this cloud ROARED at me. The contrast fade is not photoshopped (although the image certainly is), and was caught in-camera as part of the polarizing process (from the filter). Tell me if this shape reminds you of something different.

THE LENS:
Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX

POST-PROCESSING:
Rotate and crop, Sharpen (smart), duplicate layer (60% soft light) with Black and White (blue channel) and a bottom to top ND gradient filter to sihlouette the tree-line. Noise reduction (Neat Image).

  • Aperture: ƒ/4
  • Camera: NIKON D2X
  • Taken: 12 February, 2006
