I'd be interested to learn more of the creative journey - finding the place, the position, timing and then choosing your workflow.

What will become of this? Are you going to print it large?

A small point. did you burn in the left upper and lower corners?

Hello Asher

Thank you for your interest!

I was out getting some fresh air. I wear my camera whenever and wherever I can. This allows one to take advantage of photo opportunities that arise. In this case I was attracted to the dark clouds. I shot this hand held in black and white with my Leica Monochrom & Summilux 50mm @ 1.4 wide open and focused on infinity. I did not burn anything in the corners... one characteristic of this lens, when shot wide open is light fall-off in the corners... a natural vignette. I always process with basic adjustments in Lightroom 3.6 but in this case I got a bit more creative with my choices - but still not much time spent on it. This would print out the size of a billboard!

Best, regards

James
