    Unusual cloud formations (mammatus clouds) made for an interesting sky. First bit of sun in nearly a week. We've had 9-10 inches of rain in my area and lots more around me.

    It's a cool scene, but would really benefit from a foreground subject to anchor the photo.

    I'm still a noob, but I would say that if there isn't anything interesting in the foreground, then frame up to feature the clouds. Or see if lightroom can reveal more reflections or interesting details in the water.

    What do you use for post? Or do you not do any post at all?

    Nice clouds. You could have tilted up more and even lose the ground completely since the clouds are the interest here. I like it.

    Bridge and Photoshop...I do much of my work in channel and luminosity masks and LR just doesn't work like that...Other than the presets which I mostly abhor, there is not much difference between the RAW editor in my Bridge program than LR. Photoshop offers me a greater range of editing opportunities than does LR.
