Cloud City is a fictional floating city on Bespin, a planet in the Star Wars universe which appears in the film The Empire Strikes Back and in Return of the Jedi as a glimpse celebrating the defeat of the Empire. Yes, I am a SW geek !

Shot from the third floor of a building in the Adelaide CBD … towards the Adelaide Hills whilst clouds were forming for an almighty storm (mid 2007).

A few nights ago I had the idea to convert it to a triptych, a surprisingly easy process with either Photoshop or GIMP. Then I fixed the contrast in each panel, thereby making the clouds a little darker from right to left.

    Kurt … Thank you. Pixel manipulation is not something I was keen on initially, but I’ve come round to it. Since starting with RB, I’ve realised where I can utilise Multimedia both to enhance and improve my images.

    Birgitta … I’m glad you like this piece!

    Kym … Thank you. Yeah, a little fancy work to fix the tone/hue/contrast (I never know the right word) in the clouds.
