Sunny Day Skies

November 2008 Magazine

Most railway photographers prefer taking pictures on a sunny day because the sunlight gives a more attractive appearance than with pictures taken on a cloudy day. Nevertheless, the sky can often be improved in a sunny day picture by, for example, adjusting its colour or the amount of contrast.

This month’s example shows some locomotives at the Long Marston storage depot open day beneath attractive summer clouds. Unfortunately the image is not as good as it should be because the clouds have a fairly flat appearance and the sky has a slight yellow colour. The article describes how to correct these problems.

Below can be seen the same image before and after editing. Pause your mouse pointer over the image to watch it change.
