    A field about 15 miles from my apartment after quite a close call with a major storm....our town lucked out this time...this photo was taken as my buddy drove down a dirt road. I'll go back at some point when I can actually get out of the vehicle (presumably stopped by that point) and do a better job with the composition...this was one of a series of shots I was taking hoping that one would turn out and this one was the best...

    And my own edit of my own photo, just to make things look ugly or something...

    Your edit isn't ugly! I'm a sucker for saturation and I actually prefer the extra light shining through the clouds on your original pic and your edit. The first edit covered some of that up. I do understand that the first edit kept the sun rays from being blown out but both edits are good.

    Well, if he did PS it, he must have used a burn tool or two...or was it Lightroom?

    Exif says Photoshop CS5. KmH has a great eye for edits, this was no exception. I'd submit that he darkened the blues, lightened the greens and desaturated them a bit, maybe the yellows too. Bumped up contrast a little I think. Hard to say..

    ACR, CS5, and Topaz Adjust 4.

    In ACR a couple of gradients, a light sharpening. In Photoshop, some dodge and burn and the black borders. Topaz Adjust, I used the 'Photo Pop' preset.
