Nice image Endre. I like the composition and repitition of shape... looks like little brother and big brother. I have to ask if the sky was composited in? The reason I ask is because of the soft shadows on the observatory would lead me to believe that it was very cloudy (more than in the image)... diffusing the light. Also the left side of the building is highlighted telling me that the sun is coming from the left side but the clouds are being lit from the right side. I think this is what is adding to it's surrealness. Either...Show more →
Thank you, Kevin. I'm glad you like it. I did blend together a couple of photos taken at the same time without moving my tripod. The clouds moved around in between causing the light to change. (I was chatting with the owners of house for quite awhile while I tripped the shutter every now and then.) The cloud cover was generally very diffuse so the light was quite soft. What I also did, was use a plugin program I have which is called "Mystical Lighting" to deepen the shadows on the right of the domes and then I added a highlight on the other side. That's the highlight you're seeing. The original looked a little flat to me so I wanted the curved nature of the building to show up more. By doing that it looked to me like I have often seen it, with light breaking through a cloud cover and shining on just a part of the building - although perhaps I may have overdone it a bit. Anyway, that's the story of that. I'm so glad you like it.
All the best,
