Escape Boring – Sky Replacement

Some days you end up somewhere with amazing architecture, landscapes, or a monument. Everything is in alignment; except for one thing. You have the most boring sky, not a cloud to be seen. Last year while shooting the Calvery Crosses at Bellevue Baptist Church, in Memphis Tn it was such a night. The subject matter is very interesting; however, this image needs just a bit more to escape boring. This image is in need of a sky replacement.

Bye Bye Boring – New Sky

After a quick sky replacement in photoshop and removing the silly radio towers, we end up with a much better photograph of these icon crosses. The trick is to not distract from the primary subject with the new sky. I believe these rolling clouds at sunset fit really well with the crosses. The angle and source of the sun were the same, so no crazy artifacts to be found.

Investment Details

This took about 5 minutes in photoshop to complete after I found the right sky for the photo. It really changes the photo from boring to wow in my mind.

Do you agree the image looks better with the new sky or does it take away from the image?
