C & C any ideas? I am using it in a summer vacation album.. & Color or B&W?
parts of the sky are blown, but not too bad. It has potential, but something just isnt working for me.
Even though parts of those clouds are blown, there's still a lot of detail in them. I wouldn't worry too much about that. I like the color version better.
A couple of nit picks. I feel like the image is leaning to the right. I don't know if that's because it is, if it's a matter of perspective, or what, but it might be worth looking into. Also, I'm not sure if this was the best angle. I see what you were trying for, having the road lead the viewer's eye to the building, but from this angle, half the building is obscured by trees. In addition to that as a distraction, that other smaller buiding out front is pretty distracting. There's a lot going on, which isn't always bad, but I don't know if it's helping this shot. It appears a tad underexposed on my monitor, but I'm at work on an uncalibrated monitor. Besides, upping the exposure might blow too many things out.
Is this the Gaylord in Dallas?
JW Marriott in Orlando
It's tilted and the clouds are blown out.
you have lightroom?...
ive been finding that using the gradual filter in light room is not only fun, but also makes some for some great skies.
Will try now..
When you look at the lamp post, you see that this photo is not tilted. The leaning sides of the building are the effect of a wide-angle photo.
I definitely prefer the colour version over the black&white one, as the colour of the building is quite ... intense. And the blue of the reflected sky in most of the windows goes nicely with the colour of the walls.
If that were mine, I'd mask off the bottom part and only lower the mid-tones in the top part, and I believe you're ok then right away. The overexposed sky is not burnt beyond saving, I think.
