Photographer's Note

This is a random scene, as I was driving and exploring the great Arkadia region, from Megalopoli, to Karytaina, Stemnitsa and Dimitsana, Elliniko, Vytina, and return to Tripoli. (Yes that day I traveled a lot)

As you travel to Arkadia you'll notice the endless fields. As I was driving from Megalopoli to Karytaina, after the power station, there are many fields, in which I found this one smiling at me. The dramatic sky was perfect and also needed for this scene, which I couldn't believe my eyes. Like an explorer who found a treasure, more likely a Photographer who found the perfect scene.


About the shot:
---------------
I just couldn't wait! for a moment I couldn't believe I was seeing this, the light was perfect the scene also perfect, I didn't waste time to think how should I shot this scene manually, as my favorite Aperture Priority (AP) (f/8 for a sharp result) with my forgotten and locked ISO 100, were more than satisfying. (EV/0 or EV-1/3).
I took a few shots as always just to avoid the "out of focus" problems (never trust the AF in your widelens, at 18mm like this one, as the small viewfinder doesn't help much) don't risk it. Spare the a few shots in such cases, be generous! or else, imagine yourself being there capturing an out of focus scene: And know what? you've missed it, can't turn back time buddy!
I forgot to mention:
A polarizer filter was also used, to sweeten those colours and make the sky look angrier :)

Post Processing Notes:
----------------------
- Clarification + Levels slightly adjusted
- Saturation increased
- Black border frame added

I hope you also like this one
