The Impending Core by FramedByNature The Impending Core by FramedByNature
:camera:

Witness the power of nature at Framed By Nature .NET

When processing my storm images, I try to keep them realistic in terms of exposure/balance. But sometimes, it's just freaking fun to go a little heavier on the HDR processing of a menacing sky lol. =D This is one of those cases where I started out with a ridiculous stress-relief HDR processing, but ended up liking so much that I had to post it (after bringing it back a tad closer to reality, of course). :nod: HDR is really great for bringing out areas like the finer inflow details on the lower right, which otherwise would have likely blown out due to the high contrast.

I may have to make an HDR tutorial sometime in the future, if anyone would be interested ;)

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

This is amazing... Don't ever feel bad about pushing the HDR settings a bit--its about making art...

Why do such cool things happen only around you? XD

I love this one, it's like heaven's opened up or a spaceship is landing or the sky is falling down a plughole...
Seriously, though, it looks so unreal and yet it happened. So epic - you were really lucky to see it up close ;)

Great capture, keep it up :)
