A ridge of high pressure over the UK gave me the opportunity of this shot. The Tokina 12-24 used is, in my opinion, a superb lens, I love it.

C&C most welcome

Very nice

Looks like a little levels adj and seclective color to pull the white down a tad would help.Tad sharpen as well

some highlight/shadow recovery would make it oh so much more dramatic!

thanks guys, but my PS skills are only limited in the levels department so if you want a larger copy of this then pm me and you can adjust to your hearts content.

Levels , selective color, shadow /highlights saturation are straight foward.
No skill necessary. no layers:>))))))

Kev,

As Gale mentioned, its pretty easy to reclaim data in a white cloud formation so long as the highlights aren't blown out. These weren't. This might not be the effect you were after but it shows what can be done with a few quick adjustments in levels and the highlight/shadow recovery tool.

Also, when you are taking the shot, a polarizing filter will help give definition to clouds like that. Though a good 77mm polarizer will set you back a bit.

Very nice effort, though. I have the same lens and feel the same way.

Zig: A polariser was used on this shot, I just had trouble with the levels.
