    Storm approaching Yaki Point

    Storm approaching Yaki Point
    Blended

    Storm approaching Yaki Point
    Original

    I tried something new, for me, and that was blending a B&W layer to give more of a mood, the original is really flat due to the lighting. I left the two tourist in it for the human element and scale, but did cut off the arm I found it distracting

    Just after this pic was taken a gust of wind came up from behind me as I was reaching into my bag for another ND filter and blew my tripod over lens first . Glass was ok thanks to the Lee Filter holder on the front, but I still currently have a bent, stuck filter ring on my 16-35mm lens.

    Anyway CC's welcome

    I like the way you processed the photo. The horizon appears to be tilted.

    I think it is a beautiful image... I prefer the natural colours of the foreground in the original and the drama of the background in the edited version.

    Hi Jon.

    The blended image appears too unnatural for my taste. I would have either converted to full B&W or tried to bring out the colors more in the original. My two cents...

    Thanks Christina and Ken, thats the kind of feed back I was looking for, I have played with this image for a while and have since the beginning trying to find a happy medium in the processing, this was a completely new method for me and I will keep trying to find that emotion I felt when I came upon this scene.

    Ken, two cents is welcome, it's more than I had before I posted

    Would you allow an edit on your original, non-blended image?

    I wasn't there (beautiful spot) but here is my attempt using NiK Viveza and some adjustments to vibrance, saturation and a curve adjustment (contrast). Hope you like it.

    I essentially did the same thing but a bit differently. I hope the jpeg compression doesn't clog up the darks too much.

    Well between Georgie and Paul I think I "can" find that moment I saw when I took this pic. Thanks, I will go think outside "my" box
