One Hell Of A Storm by Shane-Morelock One Hell Of A Storm by Shane-Morelock
Storm cloud along the shores of the gulf of mexico. It could be just me but the front cloud looks like its winking at you.

Whether filtered and color adjusted in Photoshop or not, this is an excellent picture. I can feel the power of the storm brewing in the windswept trees from this angle. The contrast between the brooding, darker clouds and the lighter ones below is striking. Darkening most of the ground elements also highlights the stripe of lighter clouds streaking across the sky. Hmm, a silver lining perhaps? Very interesting. I also like how you avoided the obvious feature of including lightning in the pic. Sometimes a black cloud of rolling thunder is even more ominous without it. You should be proud of this one.
What do you think?

IMHO here is a perfect example of overblown HDR/tonemapping done very well!!! The extremes that you accomplished here made for an excellent result! Awesome!

The only suggestion I had was such a simple one that I didn't think it made sense to do a whole "official critique"...the only suggestion I can make is to level out your horizon...drop the left edge like 1 degree or maybe 2 and it will probably be perfect...

Thank You :bow:......Actually the HDR was not interesting enough for me, so I played with some brushes and exposure sliders in Lightroom 3 to get the final result :)

It's interesting...I don't know alot about Photoshop or Lightroom, but I do know that everything you can do in Lightroom can be done in Photoshop...but somehow Lightroom just makes it easier to play doesn't it?! Excellent result...and I will have to try your suggestion of taking the post-processed work BACK into Lightroom to play with further...hmmmmmm ~tapping fingers together deviously~

I dont have or never used photoshop..I use photomatix pro for HDR. Lightroom is cheaper than photoshop and I dont need all the bells and whistles photoshop offers for what I do....YET

Yeah, once you see the detail you can put into adjustments you will pee yourself...Not just for Photoshop itself, but for some of the filters available as well...but being able to focus effects in just certain areas and such is really fun!

In the meantime, if you haven't done so already, you may want to look into the "Topaz" filters that I believe can be used for both Lightroom and Photoshop so you could use them now, and in the future if you upgrade/supplement with PS...

Anyway, looks like photomatix does a pretty nice job...haven't used it myself...only used DynamicPhotoHDR, but I am only looking to do more realistic effects so it works well for me...

Keep up the cool work!!!

I lived in Ft. Myers for a couple years in the eighties and then Miami until 2000. I traveled the state regularly for work including many trips across Alligator Alley (which was only a 2 lane highway at the time) and saw LOADS of freaky weather. I was not into photography then except for pictures of the kids. I skipped town with the family for Hurricane Andrew and stayed in Orlando that night. Seeing the results was enough for me. We escaped with only a few days of lost power at our home.

Larger storms on the Atlantic or in the Gulf always seemed to affect weather all over the state of Florida. I remember watching feeder bands from Hurricane Hugo move through the Miami sky back in 1989 even though the center of the storm tracked hundreds of miles to the east and didn't make landfall until the Carolinas.
