White House up in the Clouds

Opportunity, timing and position are well know cornerstones in capturing fleeting moments. Sometimes it's even a suggestion.




While sitting on the patio in San Miguel de Allende my wife suggested that I photograph a white house on the cliff-side that was surrounded by clouds.

When I first looked up it didn't look that interesting but after getting the camera out and setting it up, the above cloud formation moved in creating a striking visual effect. The columns and rounded domes of the house are re-enforced by similar but looser structures in the cloud.

The original image looks interesting but is a little flat and static.
The changes I made were to add clarity +87 to increase contrast of clouds and house, increase highlights +60 to make the clouds and house even brighter and reduce both luminance and saturation of the blues and cyans in camera RAW.

In Photoshop, I decreased the saturation and luminance of the greens and oranges to keep mainly 2 dominant colors of white and blue.

Adding contrast to the clouds almost make them appear to explode around the house.

I am surprised to see that you decided to "blow out" and let some parts get over exposed. The final product of the picture is well done. I think that the blown out parts make the picture a little more interesting. There aren't a lot blown out bits so you can tell that you took the time and used your knowledge to not get to far in the post-editing. Well done.

Do you realize there's a 12 word sentence you can speak to your partner... that will induce intense feelings of love and instinctual attraction for you buried within his heart?

That's because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's impulse to love, worship and care for you with his entire heart...

=====> 12 Words That Trigger A Man's Love Instinct

This impulse is so hardwired into a man's mind that it will make him try better than ever before to make your relationship as strong as it can be.

Matter-of-fact, triggering this dominant impulse is so important to having the best ever relationship with your man that once you send your man one of the "Secret Signals"...

...You'll immediately notice him expose his mind and heart for you in a way he never experienced before and he'll recognize you as the one and only woman in the universe who has ever truly tempted him.
