Took this awhile back (same day/location as >>Turbulent Sky<<) out at Cap Sante Park in Anacortes, Washington. It’s another HDR image so go easy on me…still learning! πŸ˜›

  1. That’s an awesome HDR, I hate to disagree with so many people, but lowering the effect on the clouds (my favourite part too) would flatten the image somewhat, I like how this draws me in even giving me a sense of movement!

  2. Very dramatic sky. Do you use Photoshop for any of your post processing? If so, you might want to put the Shadow/Highlight tool to work and pull back the highlights a bit to tone down the hot spot in the sky (from upper middle to top left). That might help balance out the top and bottom as Mike suggests above. Nice pic!

      • What are you using for HDR? I just recently picked up Photomatix Pro, but saw that Nik Software has an interesting looking tool too. I’ve also just started trying a demo of Silver Efex Pro and absolutely love it.

        • I too recently picked up Photomatrix Pro and am on day two of the Nik HDR Efex Pro. So far, I am impressed with the Nik software, we shall see how it goes. πŸ˜€ I do my B&W conversion in CS5, I dig the manual conversion process.

  3. Not bad. I’d suggest backing off on the HDR processing a little – you captured some great detail in the town but it’s overpowered by the sky. Aim for more balance from bottom to top of the image. (hope that counts as being easy on you). πŸ˜‰
