    Rain Clouds

    When I took this shot, I really thought of it as an exercise in contrast and detail, but now I'm starting to like it. C&C appreciated, particularly concerning details visible in the clouds and the overall mood of the image. Sharpening an image like this is a bit of a puzzle for me, since the clouds have no real edges.

    I couldn't find the original of this on the link, so worked from this image...I didn't do much other than mute/darken the foreground colors and enhance the existing cloud colors with a touch more contrast...but in all reality, I like it pretty much as it is...amazing clouds!

    Not sure I changed much other than foreground...

    Thanks, Chris. Your edit makes me chuckle a bit, because you have pretty much restored the foreground to what it was before I brightened it. As I said before, I really thought of this shot as an exercise, and part of it was to bring out the details in the trees. Without question, the dark foreground does add to the atmosphere (so to speak) of the shot. As always, I appreciate your response.

    PS - I added the file to the Smugmug album in my signature link, if anyone is interested. It was on the SumgMug site, anyway, but it a separate album, so it would have taken some searching around to find it. My apologies for the oversight.

    Thanks, Ron. This was supposed to be a "practice" shot, but after I looked at it, it grew on me. Maybe I should "just practice" all the time.
