Winter in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. I took them with my 20D a while ago and came upon them when I was looking for images for my blog. I must admit I was amazed at the amount of dust spots on the images, there must have been over thirty on each image.  Mainly a test to see how to attach images on the updated site.









Cheers,

That cow is a bit disconcerting. Something definitely not right there  ;)

Man Ray put it there.  :)

The cow is clearly hovering over the fence, probably in mid-jump over the moon.

OK, here are some more, all on one day recently. The fourth is a tiny crop from top edge of the third, to show you what that dust speck is.

Very nice, Mike. I particularly like the fourth: would you mind sharing the toning recipe?

I find the 2nd image very powerful, Mike, especially trying to imagine it at full-size.

The 4th image struck me as well, but I feel it would have been more powerful if you would have composed the shot a couple of notches lower. In other words, 10% less empty sky above clouds and 10% more city & earth.

That's my $0.02.

Thanks, folks!

Jack:  I agree with your assessment of the fourth one - the clouds there were 'unplanned' as I was just walking by and had a camera with me.  Shooting handheld I didn't get as much of the buildings as I could have. 

Jeremy, the images were toned in Lightroom using:

Highlights
Hue 41
Saturation 23
Balance
+100
Shadows
Hue 0
Saturation 0

Dale, I like the curl of the highlights in that cloud, but if it was me I'd try lowering the black point and/or increasing the contrast a bit to bring out more tonal separation.

Thanks, Mike. I'll have to look out for a suitable image on which to try it!

The first one's nice, but I love the clouds in the second.  We have a trees thread and a rocks thread.  Maybe we should start a clouds thread?

Mike.

Two out of three ain't bad I guess!

No shortage of clouds or trees around these parts but this was taken in the UK, I just love the symmetry between the two major elements here.

Thanks, Mike.  I am reposting taking advantage of your suggestion.  A startling improvement.  I am also adding a color image for C&C.

Thanks,

Puts things into perspective, no?  One of the reasons I love living beside the ocean.
