Cloudy Sky

This was taken today with my new Sigma 10-20mm. Not the best result but I'll do better next time.

Nice Sky! I've been waiting forever for a sky like that.

Next time put your camera on a tripod. Take at least 2 photos and merge the two in Photoshop or any editor of your choice.

That way you can get the sky all bright and beautiful in one shot and the other the land.

Took me a while to figure out how to get the sky and land clear at the same time. (Faking it)

I dont know if your camera can do it but read the manual on how to take 3 shots right after each other at different exposures.

Anyway, check out Photomatrx Pro for some stunning effects in HDR.

Thank you for your informative critique :)

I have taken a few more cloud photos recently, with a tripod. Looks like I got it right this time, capturing both the sky and the green land below very well. No need for layers in Photoshop, just a little level tweaking in Lightroom :)

The top center cloud is a good example of real "silver lining". :) Great composition!
