I mentioned the problem with black skies in my previous post, so I did something about it with this photo of The Junction, which is not quite the same photo as my previous photo of The Junction, which I will post at the end in order to refresh your memories. You are all getting on you know, so you are to be forgiven for being forgetful. 😼
|This is not the sky that you would see here, assuming you could see a sky.|
Just put it down to photographic license.
When I posted this ↑ in out local photo group of FB, it really got noticed whereas the dark sky one, below, only received some notice.
Modern software programs can use AI to replace skies if you are unhappy with the one that nature gave you. For the most part I resist this temptation, but this sky replacement makes the photo so much better in my opinion. I will have you know, however, that this is my own sky photo that I added manually. Even AI technology was at a loss and couldn't determine that all of that black was actually sky, so I did it all by my lil ole self with my own lil ole photo.
Here is the other photo, as promised above. It's not terrible, but you can see the difference that the former, well-lit, sky made.
Photographic license or not, both are really nice photos.
Congrats of making starry sky! I also like both, but of course can see the sweat on your brow as you squint to add just one more star (or are they specially spaced snow flakes?)
I too like them both. You are so talented!
I do think the starry night is more eyecatching. I have never tried to replace a sky...just worked on exposure to see if I could bring out more lights.
I thought it was a natural beautiful sky, and wondered if that was smoke or some milky way kind of thing far away. Messed me up when others wondered if those are snow flakes! Snow resting on stars? You should sell that photo to the junction. It's really nice; what winter and Christmas is all about. Linda in Kansas
You are correct that the doctored sky is much more dramatic.
Great job with the addition to the photo!
Yews, the stars in the sky dramatically improve the shot. Bravo.
The starry sky does look wonderful. What was in that original image that you had to remove to have “The Junction” in its place?
Yes your starry sky is certainly the more appealing photo. But the other is more what the human eye would see.
Well done! As my old photo prof used to say, everything you do is one more opportunity to ruin your photo. Even that is hardly likely any more.
@Furry. That would depend on the location of building and the condition of the night. The sky was real, so I don't know if I agree with you although it was what the eye saw on that night.
@Pipe. Yes, but the other way around. I added the stars to the building photo since I want to keep that photo but replace the sky. Same result in the end, I guess.
You always make me wonder when I see photos now if what I am looking at it what was actually there. Merry Christmas. :)
That does make a difference!
The stars make a big difference to the photo. What a difference AI can do! If I want to make a print, I will select one with stars.
