Electro Sky by CarlesReig Electro Sky by CarlesReig
Just another sky photo? I hope, not!

Unless the focus is set on sky, that 'electric tower' gives another sense to entire shot.

Played a bit with contrast and brightness and added a little frame with The GIMP (as usual).

Full view encouraged!

I get a feeling of a storm rising. The colors are really awesome.

My god, it's beautiful. If I could paint, I'd like to paint something like that. How do people get such good shots of the sky?

50% lucky.
50% being on the right place on a good moment.

the electric tower is infact the main focal point in this composition, and no its not another sky shot, it definitel has a character of its own, the light tower in the lower left side adds a frame of reference to the photograph and gives us a sense of distance.

I'm a bit suprised how great you made "horizon garbage" look! (We call high things, like this 'electric tower' and big antennas "horizon garbage" cause it almost always ruins great views, but like I said you make it look great!).

The colors are superb. I got to love the silhouettes in this :nod: I like the fact you still photographed a tiny bit of land and not just the sky as we get to see a lot in such photos. You make it look really 'real'.

The border looks great, really makes the colors and especially the dark clouds stand out more.

Well done =)

stunning, looks like streaks of fire are coming out of the sky. :clap:

I like this one better. It has more of a clash theme going on. Nice shot!
angel-obsesser Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2005
A friend once told me that sky is hard to photograph since there isn't anything actually happening and that is the reason a lot of shots turn out really flat. Because the photographer hasn't managed to make the sky live and talk.
With this shot, I can't see that. But what I can see is that the massiveness of the wires and the great composition (the clourd and the ground are not paralel) really catch your attention and although there is a lot of darkness coming from the clouds the shot doesn't feel off-balance.
I dislike the streetlight though, but you can't help that. It would have been an interesting addition if the shot had been closer to the light and that would have resulted in showing an idea of how the artificial light takes the job from the real light. But this way isn't bad too, everything else compensates the small distraction. Well done :nod:
And congrats on the feature by :devalphye-ali:

Absolutely beautiful. The colors are fantastic, and the electric tower does add a lot. Nice job!

i liek the contrast between the bottom and top half of the sky... makes this pic more interesting that most "sky shots"
MumblingIdiot Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2005  Professional
I agree, it does give another sense to the shot. The sky on it's own is very impressive, looks like a huge great painting. But the tower, the lamp and the sort of lava/furnace colour of the sky give the whole thing a very industrial feel. Great shot.
mcfonk Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2005
cool sweeping lines.. i like it

Wow... :jawdrop:

very nice.. it's interesting that the lines the the sky sort of go along with the power lines... :D
tamplix Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2005
Pues muy buena sí señor...

Sobre el cielo no te voy a decir nada porque salta a la vista: espectacular.

Me gusta como has encuadrado la imagen dejando parte de la torre fuera de la imagen... eso ha permitido que cupiera en la foto más cable cruzando la zona más oscura del cielo... da perpectiva a la imagen. Me gusta además como queda la silueta de la torre recortada contra los diferentes tonos del cielo de arriba a abajo.

Y aunque al primer vistazo pensé "esa farolaaaa... no sé no sé..."; creo que ahora me gusta más.

El contraste y los colores me han parecido increibles...

O sea que me ha gustado mucho... :clap: :+fav:

Pese a ser muy molestos en mundo rural, tengo especial afinidad estética con los cables y las torres de alta tensión..vete a saber por qué.
Precioso cielo, con torre y farola incluidas

The sky in this is really amazing, and this is one of the only peices I've seen where power lines don't make you look away from the rest of the picture, that is how powerful the sky is. Great capture.

esta tremenda
SpriG Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2005
lovely composition. i think the photo is seperated in three parts. the warm colors in the background, the dark and cold clouds and the "electro power" in the foreground. really nice concept and so the mixture of the warm and the cold colors combined with an unnatural power. great!
supermonkey110 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005
nevermind I dont know why I thought is was slanted sorry
supermonkey110 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005

Spain? may i talk in spanish? thank to god

Me gustan los colores, por supuesto el ángulo de la torre es perfecto porque no ocupa mucho espacio y se puede apreciar bien el cielo en esa hora tan magnífica... muy buenos matices rojizos, la tomaste en el momento perfecto xD
