What is greatly appreciated are you images! Fantastic!

By the way, now that none is listening, this dramatic sky is natural or have you added it later? Smile Ana

Thank you for your feedback. I don't consider myself a purist and my approach to photography is like that of painter towards his canvas. At the time I took this photo the sky above this city was not interesting but close to it there were these interesting clouds. So I took two seperate photos and combined them in photoshop.

Great shot Thumbs Up! but a little taste of not enough...
Some work: open current version in PS.
1. change the levels: take the right handle (highlights) from 255 to 230, accept.
2. apply an unsharp mask filter of Gain 6 Radius 150 level 0, accept.
3. apply a second USM of Gain 20, Radius 0,8, level 0, accept.
What do you think ?
Thanks for trying !

Thank you all for your feedback. Herve, I tried what you said, it will look different from what I had in mind but still very interesting.
