Skywatch Friday – Dogwalk in the Greenbelt Edition

Skywatch Powerlines
I don’t live out in the country or spend much time on a beach or anywhere else where I have unimpeded views of the sky.  I live in the burb’s of south Tulsa so my views of the sky are pretty messed up I guess. I’ve got powerlines and telephone lines and light poles and cell phone towers, ugly ass bradford pear trees, and my neighbors houses, and all sorts of other stuff occluding my view.  I don’t worry about it though, that is where I live for good or bad. I’ll pick my shots to avoid the as much as the noise that I can and go with it .

I don’t worship unfiltered SOOC images either. I use all sorts of filters, effects, and treatments. Sorry about that but often the image doesn’t match what I see. I don’t even know what SOOC means any more with all the in camera processing available now.

Anyhow we were on a family dog walk in the greenbelt the other night and the sun was going down but I had all these powerlines in the way but what the heck!!

How about you? Do you go for the pure shot or settle for less?

    I shoot em as I see em! But sometimes I process em. A little bit, without as much talent as you . Often I don’t even notice see those lines when I’m getting ready to take a sunset or cloud and then am surprised when they show up in the pictures. “Wow I didn’t even see those when I was looking at the sky.”

    Living in the city…ok…some might argue that I live in city, especially those who live in huge metropolitan areas, but to me I live in a city and I find it hard to escape the noise in my sky perspective shots. Like you, it doesn’t stop me. The moment is captured and enjoyed forever. Of course, I do look for every opportunity that I can to catch those magical moments without interference of man-made or natural eye sores. Oh yeah, sometimes I even do a little photo-editing to bring out different moods or to enhance what I see that didn’t quite come through my lens eye right. 😀 Nice #SWF contribution, Alan!
