p.1 #1 · Under the Stars - State Park Submission


I was chosen to have my work displayed at Antelope Island State Park here in Utah. I'm getting together some of my images together and re-working some of them.

Let me know your thoughts on this image, I wanted a surreal look. I've been staring at my computer for too long so I'm taking a quick break before I proceed with any more editing.

First most, this is a beautiful image.

The only part that I think is 'surreal' to me is the color balance. If this is the color you are going for, then leave it alone. I tend to aim for a more 'realistic' color balance but that's just my taste.

I like it the way it is.
I would like it with less magenta.
I would like it with green eggs and ham.

Sweet shot dude, I love the mood!

Other then what dgdg said, I might play around with the cloud and star opacity. The clouds look ghostlike (especially the upper left area) and a lot of extra stars are showing through them. I think if you wanted to keep the star showing, it would be more realistic to render them more diffused or add a glow to them . Since the clouds don't look like they were captured with a super long exposure, I would probably erase all the stars that overlap and increase the cloud opacity.

and there is just too many to be believable as well as out of focus

I like this a lot Justin. I don't even mind the strong color cast. The only thing I would think about changing is what others have pointed out, there are a bit too many stars showing through the upper clouds, I would either tone them down a bit or mask them out completely.

I'm guessing you added magenta to get that surreal look - however my brain is telling me too much magenta and clouds should block out stars. It is however a pretty composition.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Exactly what I was looking for. I actually scrapped this photo though, it just wasn't doing anything for me. I might re-visit one day to get exactly what I'm looking for.
