untitled (yet) (explored)
when processing landscape shots, one of my main concerns (and struggles) is balancing the sky with the ground... in terms of details, tones, contrast, etc. my ideal is to unify them in a seamless manner... to make them look inseparable... as if those clouds and blue patches were an exact reflection of those trees.... that hay... that tractor...
Often, the problem is that too much detail (or contrast) in the sky makes it look unreal. Not enough details... empty.
I also hope for a piece of sky that looks unified and whole... as if it is was not an incomplete piece of a larger... endless expanse (which it is!).... but the entire sky... condensed into a single frame.
