A house at High Peak against a stormy sky. I was delighted when these skies cleared to reveal such radiance. I had been grey and rainy for two solid days and nights!

The 150k file size meant lots of fiddling with blurs and Lab colour layer blurring to avoid a pixelated sky. Depsite noise reduction software, etc. it still didn't work too well. We need more size tolerance!

Gorgeous! The flat gray sky forces the eye down to the bright golden hues and powerful lines below.

Great colours. Looks inviting and threatening at the same time.

Great light, but certainly overdone on sharpness.
