During the days I stay at the Dolomites, the splendid scenery of the mountain in autumn was constantly changing. Very intense days of cloudiness alternated with low clouds to rainy days, unfortunately not always all suitable for taking good photos
That afternoon I was literally surrounded by low clouds on the horizon and I took a lot of photos in this mountain scenery so particular and engaging. In this photo the clouds moving towards the forest below
It was a very beautiful atmosphere, rarely seen in the past at these levels as I said in my previous post. More photos will follow with similar scenarios of those days
This image is a result of a digital blending with 2 exposures (of course I captured 3 but used just 2) that I blended using TTS Pro with auto blend darks function inside that instantly blend a darker exposure into a brighter exposure
After this I started edit the shot using luminosity masks correcting lighting in the sky and shadows, I also fixed contrast using midtones masks. I increased details that I partially muted with a orton effect.
I fixed up colours adding more vibrance and giving more yellow tones around the trees and the part of the mountain touched by sunlight
I made a small crop to cut off an empty space below and I made some small intervention with clone stamp tool to remove some rain drops
Last touch was to add a small vignette excluding the sky because it makes the clouds too dark
I hope you will find this usefull. I’m happy to listen it from you!
