    What do you think of these, camera set on auto. Out my truck window on my way home after working 16 hours straight. I thought it was worth a few shutter clicks.

    A couple of them have some blown out highlights.

    I've found that daylight cloud shots are much more powerful in black and white. See what I mean?

    Jpeg compression ruined it though.

    I basically tweaked with it in Lightroom by adjusting the highlights, shadows, curves, and taking only the red channel (hence the black sky). I than added a slight vignette just because.

    Black and white forces the viewer to concentrate on texture, not color, and texture is what you were going for right?

    These are nice cloud formations to begin with, and a lot of blue sky inbetween, well, wow! Blue sky! What a treat to see that.

    Nevertheless, I also quite like what Sw1tchFX did to that one which totally focusses on the clouds. The conversion is good!

    And here I was thinking that in Ohio there sure'd be snow on the ground. Not the least bit. Like here! Only is it always VERY WET here, and all the rivers run very high water from all this rain and all the areas around them and the meadows are flooded.

    We (here in Ohio) have had a few days of good sunshine, The temps have been up in the 50's F. A few days ago it would have had a ton of snow in the picture. It melted fast! I am hoping it woll be a clear day today.

    you forgot to place numbers with those images ;)

    Anyway, I like some of them, would crop differently sometimes (to get rid of that tiny bit of your car for example.)

    First off, nice shots. I'd crop out the small black piece and the traffic sign in the first one though.

    Also, I'm a bit confused because of this comment:
    Why is that? Can you explain a bit what you mean please?

    A little cropping would be good. They would look nice in black and white.

    I actually prefer these in colour. That's a beautiful blue sky and the clouds look threatening enough as they are. But everyones view is different. I guess that's what makes photography so much fun! It looks like a thunderstorm approaching.
