Taken in the German Countryside
Went out with the intention on breaking some photography composition rules to see what I could come up with.
Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised
2 Photos blended, 1 exposed for sky, 1 for foreground. Both developed separately then carefully blended together. This effect is possible with an ND grad, but I feel like I have more control over the exposure this way. I enjoy doing this technique because you can wait for the lighting to hit the foreground just right, and then wait for the sky's clouds to move into perfect position. To do this however you need a very sturdy tripod so no movement occurs when you refocus/re-expose the image.
Taken with a Nikon D600, 14-24mm F2.8
Since I lose the metadata in the process I'll post it here:
Sky exposure shutter speed 1/250th seconds f/16
Land exposure shutter speed 1/25th seconds f/11
ISO Speed: 100
