    Nice image, Karm. I like the colors and the simplicity of the image. As a suggestion to try out, add a little contrast to the sky to make the clouds appear more dramatic. See if you like it any better.

    Ken, I think you are right. The clouds need a bit more bite. I'll try it this evening. Thanks

    Steve, I think your redo of the clouds destroys some of the cloud's structure. I think Ken's suggestion is to add a bit more contrast to make them more dramatic.

    Nice image. Another way do add drama to the sky is, if you have shot in RAW to reduce the exposure in the RAW converter in one copy (i.e. expose for the sky you want) then having saved that version, open the RAW file again and expose for the trees etc, then in Photoshop merge the two using layers.

    Kenny, if you use Nik software you can simply isolate different parts of your picture and basically do almost anything you want.

    Re: Edit.Pending Storm

    I sharpened the overall image and darkened the clouds (I hope) slightly. I think it makes the image a bit more foreboding -- which it was when I was out there taking this picture.

    Comments appreciated and welcomed.
