    All of them are underexposed, but the most underexposed is the last one, if you did exposed right it would've been just beautiful!

    The first two are not underexposed. Those were bracketed in half stops. Those that were a half stop above (for the first two) had blown out sky behind the clouds and the falling rain was almost indistinguishable. The last one is dark, but purposefully for effect, to accentuate the light and color accents on the clouds. I like the mood that it creates.

    Anyway, here is another. As you can see in this one, the sun just broke the horizon. The three above were shot a good 20-30 minutes before then.

    Nothing ever begs for the garbage of photography known as HDR. Never, ever. What it needs is just some very simple basic post processing, adjusting lights and levels. First shot is good "as is", but the rest are too dark.

    I dont mind HDR, as long as its done properly. More often than not though, people get it wrong. Levels might be enough for these, short of that, I would be tempted to do a vertical gradient for those forst couple to just lift the RHS without effecting the rest of it. Great images though.

    I think your images are fantastic:thumbup:, yes brightening them up would benefit the capture. Are you going to print these ? There's so much yellow in them, gonna be tricky :hug::

    Thanks. After reviewing the original raw files, I did see that some needed lightening. So I reworked them all and also played with some of the cropping. Much improved. Even for shot three, I was able to find a lighter exposure and improve it while still keeping it low key. I'll repost them soon (modem got hit by lightning yesterday).
