    Gust Front

    This is a picture I took last year as a thunderstorm was approaching the area. The thunderstorm was quickly dying and the down drafts from the dying storm caused 50 to 60 mph winds which kicked up an incredible dirt cloud on the leading edge of the storm. C&C welcome.

    Hi Kris,

    It captures the moment quite well.

    I am unsure whether you have reduced the greens (or enhanced the orange), or if that's just a natural effect from the dust colour, but the two bright orange signs now grab the attention as being the most saturated items in an otherwise subdued colour image.

    I'm not sure what to suggest, if you did change the white balance or enhance the orange, then I'd tone them down, but if SOOC, then I guess leave 'em alone.

    Cheers,

    This has a very nice Polaroid kind of look. Really terrific! But I would desaturate the two signs that Dave mentioned.
