This is a pretty literal interpretation of the sunshine after the rain. The early evening sun splashed yellow on the lower wispy cloud. The color was even more intense than it looks here, so much so that I decided to desaturate it slightly so it didn't look fake.

Clarity, curves, contrast, noise reduction, some tweaks with Nik filters, sharpen.

Hope Judi knows we're counting on her for a speedy recovery.

A personal best and my first top 10 finish. I credit Judi for the inspiration.

This is beautiful. The light is shining over the cloud as if it is ready to guide me through the dark valley.
