I took this a bit earlier and I opened it in ACR. I noticed that the sky was a bit blown. I tried fixing it but no matter what I would do, the rest of the photo would start looking horrible. Dark and not what I wanted. I tried decreasing saturation and vibrance but that only did so much. I finally just edited it the way I thought was "OK" and the sky is still a bit blown. Mostly the brightest part, the yellow area. I know it looks ok now but it is blown. How in the world do you prevent that from happening? I tried using the brush but it just looked horrible the way I tried doing it. Think it's ok to have blown areas in a photo depending on what it is? I've always been curious about this.
I took this out of my kids bedroom window. I opened it for a few minutes to take the shot. It was freezing cold! I had a heater by me though I just wanted to capture the colors in the sky! So pretty!
