2023 Clouds First – Avery Fails

2023 Clouds First – Avery Fails

I took this photo while walking with some friends, in Boulder, and was overcome with the beauty of the sky during sunset. I chose to edit the color scheme because I felt that the pink, light tone my camera picked up was not representative of the red and dramatic view I saw. Additionally, I felt this time of year (close to Halloween) needed a cloud picture that represents the spooky atmosphere! As I was not expecting to see such a stunning display of clouds, this photo was taken on my iPhone 12 Pro and is not the best quality. I believe that these clouds are cirrus clouds, and were much more wispy in person, with relatively stable atmospheric conditions. The settings on my camera were: f/2, 1/100sec, ISO 100, and EXP 0.

    I like what you did with the editing, The clouds look otherworldly.

    I love how intense the colors are! it almost looks like a hellscape. There’s an interesting backlight behind the tree as well that I do feel is a bit distracting as the lit edges make me think the tree was added in post though I know it wasn’t

    The colors in this image are really intense, I like how they look. I think keeping the tree in the foreground really helps to give some perspective on what the image is showing

    Hello Avery,
    This photo really caught my eye. The red color is super striking. It reminds me of fire. I think your choice of editing really makes this photo pop.

    This photo is truly outstanding – I absolutely love the colors generated by the sunset as well as your editing choices. Reminds me of scenery from some Halo games!
