Re: Out of Africa

Thank you for your suggestion, Sabrina,

Must say I like your version more for its greater appeal. I'd actually developed another version that's less yellow, but I decided to keep the one that's supposedly "chromatically correct".

I think it's a matter choice: to be more "truthful" to what it actually "looks", or to be more "sensational". In this case, I could have been more liberal since there was no "original" to be truthful to in the first place - it is an image merged from two shots, respectively of the milky way and the prairie. While both are shot in Masai Mara, they're about 1.5 days and twenty kilometers apart.

I've just processed yet another version to imitate the color of the sky about an hour before dawn. It is not as dramatic as yours, but still looks better than my original one.
