I live in a Sunny country and sunlight has never been a problem! I shoot early morning from 7:30am! and not later then 10:00am,

I was just wondering whats it like to be living and doing AP in a cloudy state/country where its mostly dull and perhaps a bit of shake gives you motion blur? does that happen?

Here its been cloudy since few weeks (which happened just 8 weeks in a year) and I have cancelled my shoots just cause I am not confident I will get good shots on a cloudy day

I've shot in all sorts of weather and to tell you the truth I prefer about 50% overcast. It balances everything out, no over exposed areas and you get surprisingly good color.

Overcast lights the ground properly sometimes, but it sucks for the sky! I seem to never get the beautiful overcast/ or super well lit clouds that look dreamy, I either get blue sky, or dull grey with no contrast, which drives me nuts.

Rhett..... I can't fly, but the Profi sure can.

Got up before dawn to chase a bunch of hot-air ballooons, but the sky didn't cooperate, but a bit later I got a bit of sun. The sky looks pretty weird in this ground shot, I think the aftermath of bushfires is to blame....

Are you using a polarizer, Rhett? It is almost as important as a lens in my book the you can get the right levels so the sky is blue and the clouds are a nice fluffy white

I've got a bunch of filters, including a few polarizers. I'm not talking about bringing the clouds out, I'm talking about those flat grey days, where the sky doesn't seem to have any openings, or texture, and it's that depressing, monotonous grey. I live in so cal, for crying out loud! I don't typically shoot with polarizers, but I have a uv filter on all the time, as protection, more then actually reducing glare..

I always have trouble photoshopping the sky if there are trees on the horizon. It is easy if the horizon is sharp such as a rooftop but can you tell me your trick to doing it if there are lots of trees (read as bare trees so they are see through)????

Thanks!
