Poppy Field Sky Hole

Poppy Field Sky Hole

This shot is the last of the sequence taken at a Poppy Field just south of Falmer near Brighton on the West Sussex coast, UK. For full details of the exact location see the first image in this series at https://www.flickr.com/photos/edwinjones/18801022079/in/dateposted-public/

I was taking macro images when I saw this pattern in the sky developing and quickly switched to the camera with a wide angle lens and took some 3 shot sequences for HDR. The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm. Taken handheld. 3 raw images 2EV spacing. Outputted in Photomatix using detail enhancer and a stronger HDR than I usually go for to really bring out the detail in the clouds. I then used a Photoshop Saturation adjustment layer to bring down the reds and blues which were excessive.

I used Topaz DeNoise and then Topaz Clarity
