Chasing Clouds

Taken from the roof of my house using a ND4 filter stacked with a Polarizer filter. Made the biggest mistake by using ISO640. Most picture are photoshoped for desired effect. The clouds formation are probably most visible around late afternoon (pictures we taken around 3pm).

PP to increase the brightness and a slight blueish effect. Stacking both the ND & CPL isn't the best idea.

PP to add the blueish effect

this shot was taken with just the ND filter

bokeh-ed roof tiles

Will attempt on more sunset/sunrise picture using my new ND filter at another time. Deepavali morning maybe? for more tips on photographing clouds, see here.

p/s: enjoys the Saturday without any distraction or any constraints of time.
