Copeton Dam is near where we live. Not to a dramatic area but the clouds were fantastic.
Coloured version in workshop.

Very beautiful!! What a sky!! The sepia colours gives a good mood!


When I first saw this photo, I thought that has got to be country Australia!

Anyway, congrats on a great photo. The colour version is great to, but mono really stands out.

Hi Nico

Great use of sepia! Beautiful sky and great composition


Stunning sky, its gorgeous! excellent choice of sepia tones, and very well framed.

Beautiful capture of this "big sky" - the low horizon and placement of the tree on the lower left are perfect. I love the wide-angle curve, too.

Hello Nico,
What a fantastic view! Excelent idea, composition, well seen and done. I like the B/W version.

Hi Nico,

I would also have gone for the black and white! A bit stronger, especially in the grassy parts. I'm wondering a bit about the tilt to the left. Just looking at the verticals of the trees to the right...
By the way, are you happy wiht your Tokina 12-24?! I was considering buying one, or saving for the Nikon lense. No problems with purple fringing at f/4?
