Modern Prairie Skys

Modern Prairie Skys

North Dakota. Somewhere near Chase Lake NWR. There are only remants of the true Prairie anywhere in the state. This is not one of them. Still it has a beauty of its own.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.6 @ 1/500th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Cropped slightly in Lightroom for composition. Recovery for the sky. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and just a bit of vibrance. Pulled a Graduated Filter up from the bottom to just above the horizon. Added Brightness, Clarity, and Contrast. Landscape sharpen preset.

From Potholes and Prairies 2009.
