This was a fun shot if you don't mind a chilly breeze on your back (and you didn't bring a jacket because it seemed warm enough), but I need some assistance in working on my exposure control. I would have experimented more, but it began to sprinkle.
This was shot on the D7000 with the kit lens (VR 18-105) set at 22mm. I exposed for 10 seconds @ F/22, ISO 800 with a white balance using the color temp feature set at
2500K 0, M2. The sky was very overcast - rain imminent, 5:15 AM CST.
My question is: Should I have gone lower in the K-temp, say 1250 and perhaps gone more toward a yellow additive? Or, stayed where I was and lowered my ISO and extended the exposure time.
I did do some PP by slightly adjusting the color balance toward the blue side to minimize the magenta, more green and a tad back to the cyan side to lessen the reds. I also made a layer adjustment for levels, soften @50 and doo-dadded a bit on the output side and did some cloning, lens flare removal, etc. The first image is as it came from the camera, the second played with.
As it sits, I am not unpleased, but I know it could be better. Any Suggestions?
