“日落天開雲中現” http://sml8.it/ZutHX2 #HK #Cloudscape # 寧 Serenity
In various historic religious texts, there has been mentions of the opening of the sky. When it is cloudy as today, what was seen as the clouds sow dissipates and revealed the golden light from the sun, it looks almost like a painting coming directly from paintings seen in the Renaissance period.

The natural vignette from the 24-70 is quite strong, as I now finally get to photograph with a full-frame body. Here it is actually profile corrected but the extreme contrast from the shield sunlight still adds to the mystery of its all.

As with all challenging processing I utilised Photoshop’s Lab mode to extract detail while keeping color information in check.

# SML Translate: 日落天開雲中現
+ 日: sun.
+ 落: down.
+ 天: sky.
+ 開: opens.
+ 雲: clouds.
+ 中: within (the clouds).

+ 日落天開雲中現: the sky opens and within the clouds you can see the golden sunset.
