靜夏 Quiet summer / 香港日落全景之寧 Hong Kong Sunset Panoramic Serenity / SML.20130704.7D.43437-SML.20130704.7D.43449-Pano.i13.12x4

Recently during sunset, a line of disparate and lingering clouds caught my attention. They hung in mid-air, against a vast mountain with very delicate power lines running on its top. In the shadow area, you can briefly make out that it was captured near urban areas—it is that of the Tai Po district in Hong Kong. But it is not the focus here. The silhouette forms is what interest me, so I left them hidden in the shadow. Could I have pumped them up with some Photoshopping? Yes, I guess I could but then you would miss the delicate lines. Minimalism is the aim. When we remove the details, we can see the tiny details more succinctly, I believe.

 

13 Canon EOS 7D + 100-400 captures. Stitched with Autopano Giga 3. Processed in Lightroom 4.
