This is a wonderfully dramatic image that's not getting it's due, I think. People might be shying away a bit due to the obvious photoshop treatment, the drop shadow and such. But ignoring that, getting just to the image, it's worthy of a good long look. You have an artistic consistancy about your work that I like.
I don't mind the "Photoshoppiness" at all--though, as I think I noted on another one of your photos, I'd prefer to see more of the image and less of the frame. With only 800 pixels max to a side, every pixel counts; this image is dramatic enough that I'd like to see a larger version of it. Nicely done. -Brian
Many thanks indeed. all your comments noted and I will adhere to in future :
It is from my web site that have all the images finished off this way. I will in futurepost simply as an image, as large as possible to give a better look. There was very, very little manipulation post shot, the light and the clouds did it on the day.
