First Free Picture

posted on 14th of june, 2011

© Digikhmer (Help) I always check the box to let go the picture to the free license galery if the picture is not qualified for the RF one. But I don't know why none of the rejected picture are accepted until today.

The difference is today I let a note in the editor text area to state that I am agree to let it go free if it is not selected.

And it is done for my clouds ;) which is not an exceptional one ... it is a kind of test.

I just discovered that my picture won the third position of the "magic moment" assignment. It is my first assignment ever in the photography era. It is a miracle!
I wish to thank all the people who voted for me.
Again thanks a million and have a nice day.

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 :)
