    Last year I shot these two shots and I went back to redo them (hopefully better) since I've learned alot about PP since then.

    On this shot, it looks good on my calibrated monitor but on my second monitor it looks very dark and oversaturated, and I'm not completely sure how it will look to you guys.

    2. This one was not as sharp as I wanted it to be but, meh... I still really like this one. This was shot about a mile closer and about 5 min after the first one. As you can see, the system can change a lot in just 5 min.

    Did you forget to resize the first one? It's huge.

    Much better :)...and great shots b.t.w.

    I've always loved cloud formations and I think I would enjoy storm chasing...at least the photography part of it.

    The colors look great on my monitor - not dark or oversaturated at all.

    I really would love to go storm chasing sometime. :)

    They look like paintings the way the clouds are so whispy (if that's a word) in the first one!

    These are awesome as always, keep them coming. I know I asked this a ways back but what focal length were these shot at? Also is this Iowa...?

    These were shot at 17mm and stitched 10 shots together. This was in Kansas around Dodgecity.
