    Hi Miguel,
    A nice dramatic picture. Very dark clouds with plenty of detail in them and in the hills. The bright colour of the house acts as a nice counterpoint I think. The only thing I might do is to crop off the left a tiny bit to remove that foreground bush or foliage.

    Use the clouds to work for you. A polarising filter is a great thing for bringing out depths and contasts in clouds


    Miguel...Brilliat brooding sky well set off by the bright nouses. I love it but agree that you could try a few crops and see if anything grabs you....and what stunning hills!

    Re: The rain is coming

    Just a thought, Miguel, but the house seems very bright and central while there is little of interest on the left side.

    But I don't want to lose anything from the top or bottom. So I think I would consider a crop from the left and finish up with a different size ratio.

    I'm not really sure; I'm just holding a piece of paper against the screen.

    Hi Pinaki , I normally like to take all my picture in manual position and process in RAW format, the final touch with the photoshop cs4 .This picture has tonal contrast and was lighted over the house .
