Calm after the storm

Calm after the storm

We have had some good thunderstorms and impressive skies. This was after racing last night when the wind had died. All evening I was torn between my two passions as the sky was superb!

Real stunning shot Viv, you can feel the atmospherics in the air, a real hard thunder storm would clear it............................Dilwyn

Very, very lovely. I took the liberty of dragging this off and adjusting the levels. There is a lovely reflection in the black foreground which I'd have liked to have seen. Just my preference. Cheers, Mal.

I love how this came out. The red really pops out of the darkness. I didn't notice the reflection until Mal said something about it, and now find myself wondering what the adjustment would look like.

Thanks all! Interested to see it as well Mal. I used fill in flash to light the dinghy as it was getting quite dark. I will have an experiment myself. Viv

Here you go Viv. I simply did a gradient mask on the lower part of the image and adjusted levels.

I hope you don't mind:

Thanks Jason
Thanks very much for doing that Mal! I like the reflection on the water but I think the dinghy looks a bit too bright so I may try your idea out but keep the dinghy as it is. Viv

Hi Viv, I'm on my home computer now which is not calibrated and the image I uploaded looks terribly pixellated. How embarrassing! Anyway, on this computer the foreground has the reflection and the boat is dark and moody as before. Interesting to note when viewing images that we're not all singing from the same photo sheet. Cheers, Mal
