It has been a while when I have visited Helsinki, Finland. This is another city that I managed to explore by foot. Me and my friend walked around right before sunset after having a few beers.
We both stayed at this lake for the sunset. The main reason why we stayed at this position is obviously the clouds – I love the drama in the sky a lot!
To have the clouds look like this I have increased the “Clarity” slider within Adobe Lightroom quite a bit. Another good idea to add some drama into the sky is using an HDR program.
When doing this, I usually just look at the sky and do not care about the rest of the photo. This means that the rest of the photo can become a little over cooked. Do not care, within Adobe Photoshop you can merge the two versions of the photo using layers, just paint the regions you like!
I always take max. 50% of the brush because I tend to go too harsh on the HDR or the Clarity thing, it just dials details in the photograph a little back.
