Beautiful sky Neil, you have caught it perfectly and I like the contrast of the industrial site. Looks like you might have taken it from your home? Like it very much. Cheers, Rosa.
Hi Neil,it's a great capture of what would be a very fleeting moment and there are some superb elements in it. Not so keen on the distracting white fascias however but from that vantage point it would be difficult to not have them. A graduated filter would have allowed you a bit more detail and clarity in the darker areas by virtue of a slightly longer exposure.
Hi Rosa, It was taken from our back bedroom window, another two minutes and i would have missed it. I don't mind the industry in a shot now and again,i'm pleased you like it too,many thanks...cheers to you too...Neil.
Hiya Sam. aye , it was a fleeting moment,i was up and down our stairs in 20 secs flat!!;-)) Iv'e some black paint in the garage,i'll sneak out some time and paint those facias,but as you say they are sort of unavoidable.I think these are scenes you can't plan for so you have to take the oppertunity when it arises.
I love this sky Neil and it's the sort lots of us try for and usually totally fail to achieve.
However, in your case the whole picture works well and the white facias as mentioned by someone earlier, far from detracting from the overall viewing experience, actually enhance it.
The facias show the human involvement in the scene, contrasting the massive natural phenomenon and in the way the facias are placed in the lower compositional third, counterpoint the extensive cloud mass in the upper reciprocal third.
You can change them if you want, or you might just want to go and get a pint.
So Neil what someone said about those fascias earlier :o) and what has just been said by Jeff proves that opinions will always differ,one mans meat etc.... at the end of the day it's what you like that matters really.
Have one for me while you're there fella ;O)
Well chaps,there you go,two different opinions both of which are respected and accepted;-) However, i think the positives outweigh the negatives,so, Sam...Jeff.. thanks for you valued comments;-)
PS...I had a pint for both of you last night,didn't half enjoy it too #~)))
All commented in the spitit of fellowship and good humour of course!! :)
Lovely rays and colours Neil
Thanks Neil,and many thanks for stopping by.
Cheers Ian, i'm not sure about the Olympics,even though i've had plenty of training lately with all the decorating,its amazing how many times you're up and down the stairs.
