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 :)

Alright, I have to ask: HDR processing does what exactly to the picture to make it look ridiculously awesome like this? o.0 I'm guessing this is far from what the maked eye would see.

OMAGAW IT'S THE MOTHERSHIP!!

With that silliness aside, MAN I love your work!! An amazing shot, I am flabbergasted. We do not get formations like this in Pennsylvania. Even if we did, the damn mountains might as well be blindfolds strapped to the eyeballs.

Thank you for constantly taking these pictures, from one storm enthusiast to another!

This is incredible! I don't think I've ever seen anything like it. And if you made an HDR tutorial I know I would benifit a lot from it because I have no idea how HDR works.

Looks like you got a bit of aberration on the horizon, was that a result of the HDR?

More just a result of the contrast of the scene than anything. I'm not shooting with high-end L-glass or a 5DIII, so aberrations exist.
