Big Sky Country

Big French Sky #2

Fields of crops and big skies… France on a hot summer day.

Big French Sky #1

These two images were taken on a walk between Taizé-Aizie and Bioussac in the Pitou-Charente region of France using my Fuji X-20. I used the black & white/red filter simulation, spot metering and underexposed by 1/3rd stop; the images were recorded as JPEGs as opposed to RAW. The results are, I hope you agree, more than satisfactory. Having looked closely at them I think I need to reduce the Auto ISO range a little to reduce the grain/noise notably in the sky.

Processed in Lightroom 5.5 and Niksoft’s Silver Efex Pro 2. The upper image has a vignette added for impact.
