Not sure why this is bothering me but it sort of is. There are programs out there that advertise that they can 'help' you change the sky ... in your photo, easy peasy!
I don't know, but that sort of seems to take some of the fun out of things. I mean the other morning I would have wished for a more 'exciting' sky to accent my morning fog shots, but the sky was sort of dull photographically speaking.
What if I wanted to make things more exciting?
You can really tell this is fake because I left all the extra details in. Even the crooked horizon.
This C 130 came right over
pasture a week ago.
Most photographers do state it when they are doing a composite.
I like doing composites sometimes, they are a fun challenge. I absolutely love those talented people who can make fantasy scenes.
Most of any composites I've ever done were pretty obvious.
But I've seen some wonderful photos that looked astonishing and when I read the fine print, a sky was replaced, a building was moved, a storm was inserted... Cool, neat but then it makes me wonder if I can believe what I see sometimes?
The shot below is a composite that worked out very well.
The bear had the right light on it to drop it into a photo that I enhanced.
I put a sun glow-starry thing into it.
I added some rays too.
I would call it a bit of
a fantasy composite.
