    Went chasing a storm yesterday afternoon. I pass this place on the highway all the time. The mood yesterday just suited it...finally [​IMG] This is another HDR, so that did most of the post work for me. After that, I just brought out the whites, clipped the blacks a bit and and bumped the contrast.

    I'm pretty sure I could tweak this and turn it into the 'Bates Motel'

    ALL good.
    ALL very impressive.
    I do want to know how to do HDRs!
    And I want more lenses.
    Like a very wide wide angle lens - like this one.
    For example.
    And then I want your "eye" for things and ... no!
    I DON'T want this kind of weather any longer! [ tantrum] No! No! No! [/tantrum ]

    I'm so jealous... what type of storm was the forcast? From my recolection of some of your previous posts, I would guess you live in the western part a America... I have never heard of a supercell or tornado in the winter time...


    I love this shot by the way... Great mood to it... Those clouds have great constrast... I have found it hard to get a lot of detail in the clouds, but you do it very well...

    I like the tonality of the photo, also the effect generated by the lens. In general you have obtained a very attractive scene. Good work friend.
    Spectacular sky.
    Greetings from Spain.

    Thank you all very much!

    LaFoto, this one was shot at 10mm.

    You're right Chris, I'm in California. A 'storm' here, is usually nothing more that rain, wind and lightning. With the occasional snow storm where I was at. I was just hoping for some good cloud cover and maybe some low snow on the mountains.

    Sebastian, this image was only done with 3 photos. For me, it's easier to do an HDR in darker environments, than it is in lighter environments. You can always use longer exposures and noise reduction, but it's very hard to eliminate the bright sun.
