Mushroom Revisited

Mushroom Revisited

F/10, 1/200, ISO-200, 28MM

Anyone remember the first time I posted this photo? I mentioned at the time it was a photo I could imagine myself returning to. I always thought some better post-processing could bring out the clouds more. The original image was a pale comparison to what I actually experienced that day.

Nearly a year later I decided finally to return, and I think this is one of my first reworks on this blog. Someone with an eagle eye can probably prove me wrong. Anyway, I was able this time to bring a lot more drama to the image and really get the texture of the clouds to pop, much closer to what was actually in the sky that evening. I’m much happier with the general composition too. Last year I was unreasonably obsessed with standard image sizes, and I was determined to make this one fit in an 8×10. I also tried 16×9, but neither size does this composition justice, so I sized it in the best way for the image itself this time.

This time around, I think I’ve come up with something I won’t feel the need to return to. But who know how my post-processing skills will develop in another year?

  1. I agree, the new edits make the scene more dramatic. This is a fantastic cloud that you captured ! Love how time gets us to learn more on how to process our images. I’m going through the same experience as well.
