I have spoken of this in the past, but a trend in photographic editing is sky replacement. I tend to work on the naturalistic side of photography, so this is a software feature that offers little to me.
What is "Naturalistic Photography"? In brief, it is the use of natural lighting and the absence of artificial light to take photographs. This gives the natural effect of the light at various times of the year. It is a technique applied to different landscapes and seascapes.
The origin point of Naturalistic Photography was first recognized in 1889. The eponymous book on the topic under the authorship of Peter Henry Emerson provides the outline. It is to show reality in its own environment without costuming, backdrop or predetermined formulas. I am not fanatical about it, but it is my starting point.
To me, it is more about the story something such as clouds tell us. They give us the story of the time of year and the weather conditions. Clouds warn us of upcoming weather events and how we should prepare. And they tell the story of the power of nature and the glory of meteorology, physics, and chemistry in action. And for all these things, to me, an algorithm is not a good substitute.
