Latrobe (CA), Cloud Ribbons, Light Pockets, Dragon Face

A uniform scene is probably not.  By accentuating contrast and increasing available light in an image brings out a final composition entirely different from what your eyes saw.

Yes, I am going through last month’s archives of images again.  Between work, preparing images for competition, and delivering and retrieving images from competition, there have been few windows to shoot among the even fewer opportunities with atmospherics.

So besides the pockets of light on the left side of the image, what I also wanted in the composition was the wisp of clouds on the far right.  Now that I have looked at the puff of clouds closely do I notice it bears a resemblance to Puff the Magic Dragon with some spectrum color in its eyes.
