Beautiful wide angle scene. Might have helped to correct the trapezoidal effect. 7

Great colors, cloud formations aren't that striking however. Old ma nature isn't always in our favor though.

Great sky. That and the expanse in forground enhances the isolation and strength of the dwellings.

Got a nice sky but the foreground is somewhat poor. Maybe cropping all the yellow grass would have a bigger impact.

Seems like I am running up that steep hill to get home before the rain starts.

Nice big open skies... I like that, but HDR is left out of his. I'd love to see this with a better HDR effect. Anyway, good luck!

I wish the sky was more interesting because it makes up most of the shot.

If you have Lightroom you can remove the dark smokiness surrounding the clouds. Select the airbrush tool and pick "exposure" and "-" for the air brush settings adjusted to about +.5 f/stops or so for starters and airbrush the smokiness away from the cloud edges. It is a bit tricky to avoid unevenness but pretty easy with a practiced hand and produces a very natural looking result.

You can achieve the same result with an Exposure Layer in PS CS4 but, of course as is true with everything in PS, it is a lot harder. :)

The bottom is superb. The top is just a little overworked.
