Day 8 of my Advent Calendar
I took a few photos today but wanted to share this one as the red sky over Leeds tonight is unique to today. It was taken with the 18-70 again at 18mm to get as much of the sky in as possible, I had tried to take a photo of the sky from a few locations along the river and near candle house etc but I couldn't see enough the the sky from buildings being in the way until I was on my way back and I was on the footbridge near the Chambers Riverside West.
In post I used a few gradient filters to even out the exposure from where the sun was settling. I then reduced the exposure by 0.75 stops to further silhouette the train line area. I also raised the saturation, clarity and contrast, and finally the saturation on just the yellow, red, orange and blue fields to heighten the sky colours.
