[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last Saturday was my brother's birthday. So we headed out to Caliraya, a man-made lake on top of a low mountain beside the Laguna Lake.

It was a very windy and cold day. The sun was strong in the morning but was covered with rain clouds by the afternoon.

This was taken a little after 2pm, when clouds were slowly gathering. I want to a field near where we camped to get this one with a water buffalo and an old abandoned house on the background.

I had my camera set on Aperture Priority at f/8, auto ISO, white balance on "Cloudy", and on Highlight Priority.

In PP: levels adjusted, highlight and shadows adjusted, selective sharpening.

This is nice view! a nice and quiet place, away from the hustle and busy city, well presented, love the clouds and the rest house in the right, good inclusion! well done!




the photo is clear and sky is great.

i could not still do the heavy process in PP. yet the carabao should be consistent in color. the right ear the natural color while the left was saturated. a little brushing up to darken the animal would help.
