Obscured by Clouds

Front Page Explore. Thank YOU Thanks Dave for the SS.

 

I've been doing some reading on B&W photography. Something that has caught my fancy.

 

I did a color version on this, but the various elements were distracting . I wanted the light bathing the sand ridges - exposed at low tide, boat as a pointer to the clouds.

 

Update: Thanks for the exposure tip. corrected and reposted.

 

Single EXposure.

1. Converted to B&W using the blending mode. adjusted sliders for relative color impact

2. Shadows/ Highlight - painting with light .

3. I replaced the sky from the same place but different day - manual blending to align horzon and distant objects.
