Exposing for blue skies


#1

Wanted to present a recent case where exposing for the sky helped with maintaining the blue.

Shadows recover easily especially if shot in raw, but a blown out sky is hard to bring back. This example would have worked better had there been any clouds but that’s all I got today!

PS: smaller aperture = better flares.

Cheers.

Nice work and you’re right on the money regarding shadows and blown highlights.
Would have been an excellent opportunity for a GND filter.
