    That last one! :shock:

    WOW!

    Do you do PS or are you all against it?
    I think there is still some more "punch" hidden in that last one.

    I'm using PS Elements. I processed this one similar to how Joe said he processed his Galveston series - duplicated the background and adjusted the levels for each layer (sky/earth), then brush/erased the earth away from the top layer. It was just a quick edit because it was just a snapshot of the sky from the driver's seat, i couldn't find a more interesting foreground. It has more pop on my home monitor, i'll have to make an adjustment, because it looks washed out on my work computer too...

    I was really just scouting this location because i haven't been there since I was about 7 years old, but that storm rolled in and made for some pretty dramatic scenes. It took me longer to get there than I originally thought, i was hoping to be fully setup on tripod and all by the time the sun came up like this... maybe next time, now that i know where i'm going...

    thanks for the comments all!
