The Promise Land by DrewHopper The Promise Land by DrewHopper
The Promise Land - Bellingen, Australia NSW.

The clouds were rolling in over the mountains. Atually part of the Great Dividing Range, correct me if I'm wrong.

Probably my favourite little town on the Mid North Coast, great art, food, music and spectacular scenery. 15 minute drive and your on the beach, half hour drive West (inland) and your 762 meters above sea level at Dorrigo World Heritage National Park. Great scenery every way you go.

The clouds are great as they are but always interesting to see what more you can achieve with them. Beautiful part of the country, makes me think that a transfer up to that part of the world should be in my plans after all :-)

Different, yet compelling. One of the shots where the composition is more subtle than in your wide beach scenes. The shot seems to be a hint of the green side - quite noticeable on the trunk of the big tree. This is also a great example of where Nik Viveza or Nik Color Efex/Tonal Contrast would give the clouds a little extra punch to enhance their dynamic.
Aside all my "Yada Yada" - great shot my friend.

You have great vision to spot these things. I wanted to enhance the clouds dynamic but wasn't quite sure which way to go. Is this 'Nik Viveza or Nik Color Efex/Tonal Contrast' a free download for some actions or tutorials online? Thanks mate!
