Clouds Second – Kevin Oh

Clouds Second – Kevin Oh

The image used for this report was taken in the middle of Wyoming March 25. I chose to use this image because I loved the blue of the sky. It was very deep and it really helped make the clouds pop naturally. For the boring drive through Wyoming, the pretty sky really made up for it. These clouds covered a large area of the plains off in the distance and I felt that it made for a very nice picture. Based off the looks and height of the clouds, I would categorize them to be stratocumulus. When the photo was taken, the weather was quite still so the atmosphere I guessed at the time would be stable. When looking at the skew T chart, my guess was confirmed. To edit the photo, I used fotor. When editing the picture I wanted to keep it the natural beauty of it so I only slightly enhanced the colors and darkened the ground to keep the clouds as the center of attention. To capture this, I used my iPhone 7. Because it was a landscape shot, the iPhone 7 was able to capture it quite easily. When calculating the Reynolds number, it was hard to determine how large the cloud actually was since it covered a large expanse. Assuming the average length of the clouds in the picture are about 500 m , the density 1 Kg/m^3, the wind an average velocity of 4 m/s and the viscosity to be 1.7 * 10^-5 Ns/m^2, the Reynolds number of cloud is approximated to be Re=1.18 * 10^8 resulting in turbulent flow.

    The clouds look amazing and the sense of scale is great, but the image could be cropped a little more

    I like the cloudscape here and how you can fit so much landscape in such a small band of the image. What if you put a cowboy silhouette there in place of the mile marker post?

    Lovely endlessness. I adore it… I do wish there was a cowboy, but the post might be better, in truth.

    Really nice picture. Grand clouds making those mountains look tiny. Great job.

    I’m going to convince myself it’s a person there and not a post. Over all I like the positioning of everything and feel you would lose the depth of the mountains and sky if it were cropped out.

    The deep blues of this image are beautiful!

    Great image, I like the different layers of the image containing different types of clouds.

    Like the lone person standing there, I would leave it. Makes the image unique, and goes well with the overall clouds

    The bottom of the frame gives a great sense of scale to how large the clouds actually are. The composition is pretty great.

    I like the post that you included in the image. It really grabs your eye and gives you a feel for how far away the clouds are in the image.

    The higher clouds on the right add an asymmetry to the image that works well here.

    Really good framing. I like the line of clouds in the bottom half of the image, and how they compare to the upper clouds.

    Nice clouds, I also like the perspective in the image. The editing is done well and thoughtfully.

    Nice photo. I like the choice to frame the image with the clouds on the bottom which still gives a good sense of depth.

    I like how wide the sky feels in this image. The clouds are great and the blue sky is wonderful.

    I like the far clouds right above the foreground. Maybe the clouds at the top aren’t as important, crop slightly differently?

    Nice color and composition. The signpost is a little distracting…maybe clone stamp to get rid of it? Or make sure it isn’t so centered.

    Love how much of the sky you can see & how far you can see.

    Interesting hazy effect on the left side of the picture.
