What is the real collor of the Sky ?

posted on 27th of june, 2011

The thought of the day.

It seem that we forgot the real color of the sky. We use and like to see the perfect blue gradient artificially created to replace the flat and white sky as suggested in this excellent post.

When come to show the really clouds in a real sky with the perfect blue, some of us seem to se them as not natural or filtered. Nowadays, it is so easy to recreate a artificial sky with some Clouds PS Brush and you can make it. But still, I prefer as long as possible to enhance the little blue of the sky that recreate it.

What is your opinion about the sky or green grass? Do you filter the sky or grass of your picture?

@Tan510jomast - Yes you are right! Keep the real one for our real life as well! You have my four cents hi5!

As a stock photographer, I don't think we should ask how WE prefer to show sky. Personally, I love the sky as it is, red, blue, yellow, purple,etc...
in every shade and hue as we see them at different times of the day as light changes in color depending on it's distance .
But looking at stock photos and post cards, magazines,etc... it's pretty obvious , at least to me, that they prefer sky to be as plain as ever.
Same for grass and waves, etc..
Not sure why, but this is what they want, so if we have to gradient a sky and make it homogenous, so be it.
Then we keep the real sky for our own creative display or gallery .
There, my two cents worth :)

I don't use any filter.

@Omegatransfer - Nice pictures. Definitively, I will give it a try with the polarizer grabbing advantage that the weather is very sunny and hot and all my picture look like "over-filtered"

I use CPL filter so the sky looks more dramatic and the landscapes are really gorgious. For example: Budapest, Rome, Montenegro
