using clouds to understand outdoor scenes

Research Overview

What can clouds tell us about the surrounding scene and the cameras taking the picture? That was the initial question that sparked my interest in clouds. Since then we have learned that clouds are a very interesting cue for understanding outdoor scene appearance.
