A picture of a storm cloud taken on our way home from a grocery shopping trip yesterday. I liked how the rain appeared to be coming down out of the cloud. Most of the storm was past by the time I took this image. Boy was I glad Donnie was driving. The rain and sky were quite intense for parts of our trip. I measured 3 inches in the rain gauge at least over the last 5 days.
I used Color Efex Pro to enhance the details on the shot. I used Noiseware to remove noise. I did an hdr version, and I pulled out a few details from the hdr image layered on top of the Color Efex Pro image to add a few more details (whitest area of picture). I also cropped to 8X10 and adjusted the curve in the grass with the clone tool. Not my best shot or best pp work but am improvement over the original I think.
