This is on a guest farm called Aloe Grove just outside Queenstown. I have been to this place 5 yeards ago and people where living in this hut. Now obviously they have been moved, hopefuly to a better place. So I walked back expecting to see people and there was this shack falling down. It was about sunset time. The cloud cover was so heavy that I thought that the light would not go through. And it did! I used tripod, and flash in my hand. Then in PS I applied gradiant fill and fixed shadow/highlights, and of course sharpen (I use no sharpening in camera settings). Any suggestions welcome!

Un ciel incroyable.
L'image est très bien réalisée (peut être un peu irréel)

Interesting shot. The sky is very well photoshoped. I can imagine some will say to much but I like this style. Good job!

Trés joli photo, l'atmosphère est particulière mais la luminosité est extra ainsi que la netteté.

Salut Stéphane, je trouve que l'addition de ton PP et de ton cadrage en contre-plongée donne un effet saisissant à l'image. Beau travail.

Good work, I can see some improvements as you write were made in PS. When you use the shadow/highlights tool it leaves brighter edges. It is easy to spot that. There must have been too little light to brighten the foreground, good work with the flash lamp.
