The latest word in photo editing is "sky replacement". I have the technology to perform the task of "sky replacement", but I do not use it. I live on the shore in Rhode Island, the sky here is what should be the "replacement", not the "replaced". These are scenes that set the standard for what a sky and lighthouse should look like.
The skies over Narragansett perform with magnificence. The clouds on the leading edge of a storm place a gentle swirl in the blue sky. The swirl highlights Point Judith Lighthouse for me as I observe.
I was fortunate that the tide had ebbed to an extreme. I was able to walk out further than usual. I was capturing images for another project that will be the subject of another posting. I looked up and realized that I was able to see the Point Judith Lighthouse in a view that is rarely captured.
"Sky replacement" may be nice or even a need for some photographers. I live where we have the real thing. And the sky is lovely and highlights our environment with distinction. We are fortunate.
