Storm She Approaches
Lens: HD D FA 24-70mm F2.8 ED SDM Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Somerset Lookout Mt Mee State Forest, Qld

We had a drive to try out the additions to the four wheel drive yesterday, suspension, winch etc. But the highlight was watching this storm approach from the west.

Hello Nice shot I have a question. Took some shots last night first after sunset shots I have taken with my K-m with 28-300 185D Tamron lens (1999) with a wd1 UV filter and I am not used to the cold blue coloring of the photos. My IstD gave me warm colours and this would have been grey rather than blue, so can anyone suggest if it is the UV filter, the lens, the camera or the white balance which is set to off on my K-m. In the past I always wanted this blue effect but now I miss the more natural colouring. I used to shoot without any filters as well even though I have 2 bags of them at hand.


Looks like we both used the manual white balance.

I have a question.
You couldn't judge the blue in my shot, I used a little creative license when processing. It was very flat grey in RAW.

Are you shooting RAW or JPEG?

The bright area is too bright. Stop down a bit and then bring up the darker bits in post processing. This will also allow you to bring up the white balance to the armer side if necessary.

NO I don't like editing my photo's they are as i shoot them why sit around for hours making somthing fake.

What I should have done would be to have used the spot meter.

I admire your patients Each is a style and neither is better than the other IMO.

Thanks Jer. We stayed till the first drops of rain, could of stayed longer as the northern edge amounted to little.

Thanks Kerrowdown. I’ve taken a couple of shots that invoke that movie. Liked the effects on the entry into the atmosphere.
