I was shooting directly into the sun.... i thought this pic would look a little different
oh i shot at F20 and 1/160
I'd say it's 2/3rds a white balance problem (or it was a blue-ass day) and 1/3rd underexposure. ctrl+M, set a gray point, and then auto-curve.
i was using a quantarary 19-35mm 3.5 lens..... with no filter or anything
son of a bitch.... i was screwing around with WB other day and i forgot to take it off indcandescent... thats why all my pics turn out shitty
When you shoot into the sun the camera exposes for it, so it's not underexposed, it is actually exposed properlly for the sky, if you would have opened up the shutter then you would have exposed the city properlly and overexposed the sky. What you might want to do is use a tripod and take one frame exposing for the sky and then an exact image exposing for the city, then merge them in PS.
I like the color temperature you used, I know it is super blue, but it is very close to what it should be fo an underexposed sky.
the blueish look doesn't look that bad
I kinda like the blue ... looks good
No good? I thought I did a pretty slick job.
how did you do that?
Photoshop (CS2 to be exact) using:
- Color balance
- Selective Color
- Gradient Map
- Surface Blur
- Unsharpen Mask
Took about 10min. Did it on my break at work.
Oh, and nice smog...blech.
