Great image for Peter, and really a powerful image as well, very spooky cloud mass there!


Thanks Cory - I do think on reflection there is too much noise. My laptop where I tend to do my processing tends not to make the noise so noticeable or perhaps it is the bottle of wine I have consumed whilst processing:)

I think adding more noise may have been a wise move to make it look less like it was not meant to be there. It was a wild night and unfortunately I was in a tent:)

Well spotted. Probably my favourite Topaz Adjust preset. I really must purchase the Nik software and try and expand my processing:)

Btw congrats on the super result for you.

Dark and full of pain, anxiety and suffering. Every moment an attack on your ability to not the silver lining which will always be there. That silver lining so well presented here.
Thank you for entering this wonderful work. Score 8

I like the concept of this shot but the noise in the shot really detracts from the overall image.
