Probably shouldn't be posting this image yet as I haven't finished the rest in this sequence, but I'm too darn excited about this image NOT to share it
Probably my best shot from the Arcadia, NE supercell on May 26th, 2013. I had been putting off the processing of this image for a while. I knew it was good straight out of the camera, but I also know of the expanded potential it held since I shot in RAW. I was worried I wouldn't process it up to its full potential, or that I would process it only to later dislike the techniques I used... but I think I came away with a keeper here
Didn't mess with it too much, but enhanced the details that really made this storm special to me. Recovered some detail in the foreground so you can just
barely see the field, brought out the textures in the updraft, and recovered some shadows/highlights
This was shot as the chase was largely winding down, but the show wasn't over!
As this updraft shriveled to the north, it took on a crazier and crazier appearance. I decided to zoom in a little bit to capture the details of the laminar mesocyclone
Also wanted one of its many cloud-to-ground bolts to take up a good portion of the frame, and it did not disappoint! The color/lighting was just surreal
I can't wait to process the rest of the shots from this chase (including a short TL of this stage), but it'll be tough to top this one for a long
