Gary, the "red mountain phenomenon" image is outstanding...especially the cloud color. Where I live in northeast Pennsylvania red shale is plentiful so it's used most of the winter on snowy roads. Then, for weeks we have red slush. It's kind of gross. I prefer the color in your sky!

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

This processed today through NX this time,
One of a few i took yesterday while testing my lights, as it happened one blew so will have to send it back for a replacement.
Am discovering very quickly that there is an immense amount to learn,
Gary...

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

Tuesday night hubby, myself & a few friends grabbed a few hours of clear sky amid what feels like WEEKS of rain & cloudy weather to take a sunset cruise on Lake Wallenpaupack. Of the shots I got, well, let's say I'm not too pleased. To me, I think this beautiful sunset sky looks boring but I do like the contour lines in the water. Included with the original shot is a variation using India Ink filter and then a multiply blended layer. Any suggestions (other than leave the camera home next time?)

Lots of potential here. At least you had your camera.

Possibilities:
* Open up the shadows a bit (I used Photoshop's shadows/highlights command); there are some interesting details along the shoreline that, to me, look better than totally black
* Perhaps crop it so the glare of the sun isn't quite so near dead center (rule of thirds)
* I believe you're going in the right direction by using a duplicate layer set blend mode Multiply to give the sky a little more color and personality
* I cloned over some of the sun glare, but that's personal preference

FWIW: I have my camera with me about 99% of the time; you never know when a potentially great photo opp will present itself. (see my post below)

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today)

While grocery shopping today I noticed some interesting flowers in the floral department. After putting the bags in the car, I grabbed my camera a went back inside. I got the manager's permission and began shooting away. I liked how this one turned out.
