A Place For Dreams by MaximeCourty A Place For Dreams by MaximeCourty
For better viewing please go to my website Wildscapes you can purchase there high quality prints.

Strong winds pushed the afternoon raining clouds to let the sun shine for a moment. The strong orange sunset light over the land and under this impressive sky made me definitely think of a dreamy scene.

This is an entry for "The world is full of magic" photography contest.

Favourites and comments are appreciated, thank you =)

Is this a HDR?

It's a kind of HDR called manual exposure blending.

This one actually made me squint my eyes as if I was looking at the real sun. Well done :)

Wow, this is great.
i don't know which part of the picture to take a closer look first, it all looks so interesting.

Thank you for the compliments. What you say reminds me some scenes of the movie "the never ending story" from 1984. These kind of movies are very inspirational for me ;) If you don't know this movie, you should take a look at it =)

Merci, d'autant plus qu'il n'a pas fait l'unanimité même si globalement les retours sont très bons. L'orientation "dreamy" que j'ai donné à cette photo n'a pas plu à certain. Pas facile de plaire à tout le monde de toute façon ;)

Elle a quand même bien plus si je regarde le nombre de favoris !!!
Après il en faut pour tous les goûts. Ton retravail est assez poussé mais je trouve que ça rend bien sur le ciel, le piqué et les couleurs se rapprochent d'une peinture quasi féérique...
Et puis l'essentiel c'est de faire ce qui nous plait et tant mieux si ça plait à du monde... Et puis chacun ses technique et son approche de la photo !
Bravo en tout cas :-)

Je cherche pas du tout à avoir un rendu identique d'une photo à l'autre. Au contraire, j'oriente la retouche par rapport à l'émotion que j'ai eu de la scène et ce que je veux faire ressortir. La prochaine photo sera bien différente, ce sera la première de l'océan en plus ;)
En tout cas, merci pour tout =)
