Painterly Sunset

Painterly Sunset

As you most probably have noticed by now, when it comes to photography, I am a "jack of all trades, master of none". To see the work of a master, take a look at the landscape photographs of Michael Fatali. He works with a large format camera (8"x10"), which he carries to exquisite locations, and waits for days until the natural light is perfect.

This photograph was taken in New Jersey, about 12 minutes after sunset. A compact mirrorless camera (Olympus E-P3) is of course no match for a medium or large format view camera. On the other hand, these ethereal brushed clouds wrapped in excruciating colors were captured only because I had a camera with me; This painterly light vanished in only about one minute. Once again, I was at the wrong place at the right time.

This image isn't straight-out-of-camera (sooc). Contrast and saturation were added to accentuate clouds and the colors. However, the image is not assembled in any way and it was adjusted to match the actual appearance of the clouds.
