Skywatch...





Happy SWF,

These photos were taken over the weekend at my wife's aunts house. They are looking south towards the Lancaster Airport which is about a mile from where they live. I was proud of myself, I shot this photo manuel and I think it came out pretty good. I've been practicing alot more with the manuel features and not trying to rely on the auto unless I need to.

I know the powerlines are in the way. I tried in Photoshop to remove them. It did not work, I'll have to keep practicing with that...

Have a great day!

Woody

This shot is stunning - congrats on the development of your skill. I kinda like the power lines there - they add another dimension.

The powerlines makes it very interesting, I like it.
Wonderful picture!

I think the colors are fantastic!!! Lines or not... it still is amazing!!
I do not use photoshop or any programs so lines would always remain in my pictures, I'm afraid.

Have a really nice weekend!

Oddly enough, in this shot they enhance rather than hinder.

Nice shot.

beautiful colors and I have no clue how to photoshop things in or out of a photo so how I take it is pretty much how it looks I do know how to crop though :)
Happy SWF!

Beautiful sky. I read Birdlady's comment. Actually, I kind of like the wires in it. :-)

Patricia said...

It is so nice!! I loved it!!
Don't worry about the powerlines, it makes it look more natural.

Robin said...

It's a beautiful shot. I think the wires add to it. :)

D Herrod said...

Great capture. I find it annoying with wires & poles get in the way of an otherwise stunning shot.

The power lines are part of our world. So be it. Whenever the power goes down, we remember how much we need those things...

Marvelous view, friend.

God bless.
