Overcoming Gray Skies

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLUGIN - A TOOL FOR EVERY SITUATION

If you're into landscape photography you know that it can be frustrating to arrive at a great location, with a great subject, and then be faced with poor weather conditions.  I prefer a partly cloudy day with big, fluffy clouds scattered about.  That allows me several lighting options.  I can shoot the scene, highlighting the blue sky and clouds, or I can wait for the sun to go behind a cloud and shoot in diffused light.

A total gray sky with no texture can produce a very boring image.  That's when plugins can come to the rescue.  I applied a texture layer to this image to create some interest and add some depth to the sky.  Then I pushed the blue saturation slider a little to create contrast with the red roof of the lighthouse.
