Exercise 106: Dark Sky and Hot Day

In this HDR I made just the sky very dark with a levels adjustment on a mask., almost like you can see space. coming into view.

In this pano I stitched together, I cropped it and then made just the trees and shadows much darker to emphasize the shadows. This makes the brightness of the sun and the heat of the day feel more dramatic and real.

  1. The darkening of the sky makes it seem like you’re very high up on the mountain. It feels convincing. Only thing I’d say is maybe add more of that. Otherwise, it’s great.
