What a difference a direction makes - SOOC


Honest, I did nothing to this shot and no filter was used.  The sky was beautiful.





This shot was taken from the other side of the building, facing South about 2 minutes later.
I see some aberrations in the sky from reducing the photo that aren't on the original.

I've known that the sun can affect your shot dramatically,
but these shots demonstrated that orientation can make a big difference.

Great illustration of the sun's effect. That first shot is amazing!

Really nice photos, Amy! Filters, textures, and effects are so common now that sometimes we just expect that stuff. To me, a good untouched photo is a real work of art.

Direction and light can indeed make a huge difference in your photos.
The sky is beautiful in both shots, but so brilliantly blue in the first.

Happy Sunday!

this is perfect for proof that light matters and which direction it comes from. when i snap a shot, i do four directions to see which is best. but i like both of these. with a macro of a flower in the back yard, i just move the camera up, down, side to side and all four pics are different.

I have found that orientation really does make a difference in the light. Your photos here are a perfect example/ The sky in the first one is gorgeous, but the one in the second, though lighter, is beautiful, to. genie
