OK. Here's what I've learned about atmospheric perspective.
- The closer to the horizon the objects get, the more their colour becomes closer to that of the sky (which is not always blue)
- The closer to the horizon the object is, the less contrast it has (thus the brightest and darkest colours in the foreground which Gundersen mentioned).
- The farther from the viewer the object is, the softer its edges get. This combined with the merging of the colours towards the sky colour accounts for the less contrast in the distance.
Erm... I can't think of a number four and five. I guess I've learned three things only
Nice studies everyone Great even
Agustin: Thanks for the vids. They're really helpful!
D.Labruyere: Doing these studies really is fun, isnt't it? Good job on both of yours!
rvdtor: Here they are. The pictures I mean. I'm pleased with how the second one came out, but the first one isn't really good... Too bad I couldn't see that yesterday. Oh well...
Gundersen: About the colours getting darker in the background thing - I think that's most often because of shadows. Or just because things in the background are darker coloured. If you look at the images Form has provided, you'll see that the darker background is because of those two reasons.
