Love the sky! Isn't this similar to a shot you posted earlier?

Hey guys, thanks for your comments, glad you enjoyed it! I might have posted a similar one (perhaps B&W?) of the same scene, but I don't think I already share this - I might be wrong though, in which case I apologies.

Best regards,

Vieri

I think its the filters or rather the slow exposure which causes the movement in the clouds to elongate and look familia to other long exposure shots.

Nice shot though.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it Well, the exposure here is not that slow, only 1/6 sec.; the clouds look elongated due to the focal length (15mm) and to their natural shape... I did post similar shots (or, shots from the same day) though, which is why it looked familiar, probably

Best regards,

Found the other shot:
A serene sunset at the Racetrack - PentaxForums.com

I like this new version more, because the sky gives it more depth.

Thank you Adam! Yes, the other shot has been done with a FOV equivalent of 28mm, while this one is a 15mm shot - the different focal length make a huge difference here in terms of perceived depth of the scene I like both shots, they convey a very different feel: serene and calm the older one, more "dynamic" and dramatic this one. My preference is generally for interpretations like the one posted here, but sometimes I also enjoy creating some more tranquil and serene mood

Best regards,

Vieri
