Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

We've had a lot of rain the past two weeks. This was the sky just after the last thunderstorm. I've never, ever seen the sky such a color and was told after by those who have been through tornadoes in our area that this is the color of the sky when a tornado is likely. The rainbow was magnificent but didn't show well in the photo.

Sign me, counting my blessings in the mid-south.

Well caught Janet, That colour is gorgeous- and a bit creepy... kinda the same colour the sky turns over here when there are lots of bushfires. Did you shoot this at dusk?

Yes, shot at dusk. If I had been just five minutes earlier (went looking for my shoes), I would have caught the sky "French's" mustard yellow. It was creepy but gorgeous at the same time.

Exceptional colors, Janet. Great capture.

---------------------------------------

Took the plunge on a Nikon D300. (A lot to learn. I am in "tryout/experiment" mode at the moment.)

This is a snap of my brother-in-law's new toy. Looks good, but rides rough and is expensive to drive/maintain. I'm happy with my 10 year old mini-van.

Dennis,
Hope you don't mind but I did a little tweak or two on your image. Nice shot by the way, hope you don't mind.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

I've been harping on the amount of rainfall we've had in our area the last few weeks. At last count, we were over 18 inches. All of the water has forced the US Army Corps of Engineers to release water from dangerously high lakes. This was the scene as all 10 floodgates at Table Rock Lake/Dam were opened to release water at 47,000 cubic feet per second. Needless to say the flooding downstream was devastating. But better that than have the dam burst!!!

The scene was nothing short of IMPRESSIVE! I took this and stitched it together as a pano so I could get the whole dam into the picture. One "stupid" man was standing right on the river's edge. The rest of us "stupid" people were back at least another few feet.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Janet,

you inspired me to go shoot something that I've been driving by, every day for the past 25+ years.
Never fell compelled to photograph it. Don't know why. Maybe I just took it for granted.
This is a 4 photo panorama of the Passaconaway Falls, less than a mile from my house.

Thank you for your falls. Here are mine :-)

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

I'm not a huge fan of the overly processed HDR images that we see everywhere.
However I do think it can be a great tool to enhance slightly "flat" pictures.

I used ReDybaMix HDR on this train to give it some pop.

Do you find it overdone?
What about the composition?
And is it way to saturated?

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Frank, those are some mighty impressive shots. I really like the water. Isn't it amazing that we drive by scenes like this every day and somehow miss them because of the familiarity?

Thank you for sharing them. I like the treatment you gave both images.

Janet
