Explosions In The Sky by DrewHopper Explosions In The Sky by DrewHopper
I've been meaning to shoot this location for a while now, but unfortunately the conditions have failed me on a number of occasions. Today was definitely not one of those 'fail' days.

I drove here in the pouring rain cause I knew I'd get some really lovely light once the rain eased. The clouds split apart, scattering throughout the sky, revealing fresh afternoon colour. I was sitting on the break-wall, sheltered under a massive rock seeing though I forgot my umbrella.

Excellent as always Drew. I'd personally maybe crop a little from some of the rocks at the bottom of the image, definitely the cut off one at the very bottom at least.

I see what you are saying, but I also feel it works as a nice central anchor in the foreground. Can't be bothered changing this one, thanks mate!

Do you spend a lot of time post processing this one ( what do you do ), since it looks very sharp, HDR with dodged shadows.
Thanks.

No HDR and usually only spend about 10 minutes doing standard tweaks.

No real tricks to be honest. I do my own thing in photoshop, what I feel comfortable doing to my images. I'm sure you have a special technique yourself ;)
