Back up to the goldfields yesterday. Lots of haze. Lots of layering.

Nice. Perhaps rather too much plain white sky, though.

Like it as it is. Any structure in the sky would distract from the fine layers in the background.

Oh, I agree. I was suggesting a crop. Had the poster been anyone other than Russ, I'd have dared actually to use the word.

Believe it or not, I think you have a point, Jeremy. I'm considering a crop! Actually, there's another range behind the last one visible here. Couldn't bring it up in Photoshop even though there was a B+W haze filter on the 70-200, so I may have to surrender and crop a bit.

At my own risk of being thoroughly flogged by Russ, I tried to find the other range but could not, but did find some nice filtering of light through some very distant clouds..so maybe a crop isn't really needed.

Thanks, Chris. I'll have to go back and try a gradient.

Good job, Chris!
Anything to dampen Russ's penchant for excessive cropping.  Cheesy

I didn't get here via a gradient but rather through a mask, one of the ones I'm using to relearn PP. They're neat but sometimes getting from where you want to be from where you are is a bit like scratching your back to satisfy an itch on your foot.

Well, here's a shot with a gradient -- big time. I couldn't bring up that far away range either.

Sorry, I can't agree. The beams ruin the atmosphere. For me the first one works much better. Maybe with a slight cr** applied Grin

On reflection I'm inclined to agree. I guess a crop is inevitable.

How have the mighty fallen!

But I must agree. The beams end up being a distraction.

Grasp the nettle, Russ!

With the beams, the shot is interesting, but it's not what you were originally trying to obtain: the character and focus has changed.

Much improved. Perhaps a little over-sharpened, but that's probably something to do with the downsampling. Or the jpeg conversion. Or something.
