2018-12-15 .... large storms, around home today

In summary, Dave was showing off his photography skills by taking photos of some interesting scenes. He used infrared to enhance some of the colors in the photos and found that the photos came out looking better than if he didn't use infrared. He also mentioned that raw images out of cameras can sometimes be a little "flat". By adjusting some of the filters in Lightroom, he was able to bring the photos up to a level that was pleasing to the eye.

You using infrared.

Well its the crispness of some of your photos that make them stand out as being very good and pleasing to look at.
I guess I was just showing off my un-initiation with photography, say for example the trees are not more whitish as would normally be with IR.
Color - the yellow man, the red house, the green trees bottom right in the last three photos, against as backdrop of shades of lack and white and a bit of blue.
If you didn't ask for it to turn out that way, or if you did, those three photos are impressive to me at least.

These all were touched up a little in Lightroom. If I hadn't, all that bush/trees would have been almost black
I pulled up the shadows a bit so the bush could be seen with some detail :smile:

A touch of Dehaze, Clarity and Shadow adjustments bring the images up to more like it was visually observed :smile:

I hate seeing photos that have been over-processed. I want people to see the scene the way I saw it as I stood thereDave

edited to fix typos

Related to 2018-12-15 .... large storms, around home today

1. What caused the large storms on December 15, 2018?

The large storms on December 15, 2018 were caused by a combination of factors, including a low-pressure system, warm and moist air, and strong winds. These conditions created an unstable atmosphere, leading to the formation of large storms.

2. How did these storms impact my home?

The impact of the storms on your home depends on various factors, such as the severity of the storm, the strength of your home's structure, and its location. It is best to assess any damages and take necessary precautions to protect your home before and after a storm.

3. What is the difference between a large storm and a regular storm?

A large storm, also known as a severe storm, is a weather event that is characterized by strong winds, heavy rain, and sometimes hail or tornadoes. These storms can cause significant damage and pose a threat to human safety. On the other hand, a regular storm may have similar characteristics but is not as severe or damaging.

4. Can we predict when large storms will occur?

While we have advanced technology and tools to track and monitor weather patterns, predicting when a large storm will occur is still a challenging task. However, we can make educated guesses based on weather patterns and atmospheric conditions, which can help us prepare for potential large storms.

5. How can we prepare for large storms around our home?

It is essential to have an emergency plan in place in case of a large storm. This plan should include steps to protect your home, supplies to have on hand, and evacuation procedures if necessary. It is also crucial to stay informed about weather updates and warnings and follow any instructions from local authorities.
