This is a fantastic shot!
How is this look achieved?
It was a while since I did this one, but I think IIRC you need to lower the blacks, and raise the whites, with a bit of fiddling with the black and white mix, depending on the colour of the sky, this can vary a lot between mid day (blue or white colours needs adjusting) and evening shots (orange, red or purple colours need adjusting)
Adding in a small amount of sharpening or texture helps as well.
I did this in Adobe Lightroom btw.
Thanks, it looks great. Reminds me of the American Boy music video by Estelle and Kanye West lol.
