That is extremely nice shot of very cool thunderstorm.  In the forefront you have cloud formations in the upper troposphere, letting the rain go, and those clouds are spiking about 25 or 30 k feet.  In the background you see lower troposphere clouds, but the fact is what appears to be is probably an illusion.  I suspect that they are all of the am height.  Also looks like its giving the countryside a much need shower.

This is a fairly old photo, snapped at the farm :) there were some good views across the paddocks to the treeline out to the west.

Ahh my type of photography lol. Beautiful Rain Shaft. What PS do you use via editing?

:aww: :) This is a rather old photo, but I do a bit of initial correction, cropping, straightening, slight sharpening and tonal adjustment in lr, then import into ps cc where I then apply a few filters through the nik software addons, to do with colour/lighting correction and a bit more tonal work, that usually is enough, but on occasion, I'll also do a little further enhancement with vibrance and saturation if needed. Some of these photos are dated back a long time, I have been using my 7dmkii for a bit of time now, but also have photos from my 5dmkii, which is still in my kit and a fair few from an old 40d and 350d that I no longer have. This shot is from 2009 and the 40d. :)

Sounds like me. I have PS15. It works well for what I need. Regardless of the time frame, the shot it still a great one. Pictures speak a thousand works and often even a million if you let them. That's what I love about Photography. You can show the exact same picture to a group of people and out of everyone in the group, each will see that photo in a different way. It's beautiful really.

Sometimes I can be lucky and the shot falls together well, I have quite a few that I barely edit or do a tiny bit of straightening/spot removal then upload, but this one was a little blown out in spots due to the range of varying light regions etc :) but yes, I know what you mean there :nod: I have just under 60k photos in my archives now, I lost some before I seriously started to keep backups, but still stumble onto interesting ones at times :)

Same. I feel it takes more talent to take a photo that needs no editing; however, there are times when editing definitely comes into play.

Yeah, :nod: I started in film a long time ago, so a lot of the photoshop techniques, dodging, burning and a few other little tricks with under/overexposure had to be done in the darkroom, now there is such a wealth of filters and other useful tools that make it a bit of a different experience :)

Having said that, I sometimes have quite a bit of a chuckle at some "photographs" I see on other sites, that are clearly photo-manipulations due to the amount of work gone into them, unnatural lighting and light sources / colours way too pumped up and vibrant due to the lightsources shown in the images - more for landscapes and outdoor portraiture in that respect though :) I do a bit of that myself, but usually not too over the top, or I'll make reference in the notes regarding processes to a degree, but that is life these days I guess.


I grew up reading National Geographic, so I tend to favor the photojournalistic style a bit, some of the street and portrait shots I have been working on lately, I have been emulating some of the looks from that kind of angle as well :D

Same here regarding National Geographic. My cousin was a photographer for them and he loved it! I was always super jealous haha, but I love what I do. I majored in Graphic Design and Photography when I was in college; good times, but yes, too many people rely on heavy editing these days to make their pictures look better, when really the beauty of the picture is not thru the editing, it's through the original subject of the photo itself. Ex: A flower.

LOVE the thickness and the hint of white cotton clouds
