Hi everyone,

Since my earlier threads regarding exposure, particularly in bright conditions, I seem to have been taking shots that are generally more pleasing to me and not being as concerned about my sunny shots looking slightly dull.

I have a few from recently though where I seem to be suffering from the problem again. One thing I always do when a shot is opened in Photoshop is to run the auto-levels just to see in what direction and to what extent the computer sees any alterations should be made.

The shot below, although at first glance seems reasonably sunny, I can't help but feel they is a slight "greyness" to it and the sky looks uncomfortably dark, so I would like your opinions please. Rest assured this apparent paranoia isn't really that, it's just coming from where I do it's so rare to have any sun to practice with  Smile

The shot looks fine to me.

However, from the shadow under the aircraft it appears that the shot was taken when the sun was high in the sky. This sun position always gives a 'flat' effect and is the worst time of the day to take photographs. Shooting with a low sun (morning or evening) generally gives a much better result.

Cheers for your input Tim, but how do you judge?

Obviously you see lots of photos, but what do you look for in determining whether or not a shot such as the one posted looks realistic?

As I say, maybe I'm not used to editing sunny shots, but it seems ever so slightly grey and the auto-levels function takes it way brighter.

Regards,

Tim.


Edit: Thanks Viv, it's not the best shot in the world aesthetically, but it portrays my worries quite well.

It just looks well exposed. Although the light is a bit harsh the fuselage has enough detail, but is not underexposed.
