This one is a better picture than my first challenge pic. (I think.)
I took it because of the unique clouds after a large thunder storm. I am trying to really get them to stand out in the photo.

Here is a jpeg version:

I'll post my rendition this afternoon.

Here's the converter I am using.

Here's my adjusted version...

I think I am getting the basics of the HDR technique down...
(This is gonna be fun!)

On a side note, the converter I use does not show clipping. Once in PS it does though.

Andrew - nice digital capture - tons of data to work with in post-processing. Here's my take on it...

My attempt. Converted twice in ps, once for light, once for dark, overlaid the dark on the light. Selected the parts I wanted light,, used a mask, painted over with black, flatened layers, adj levels a bit. DAve

Thanks Buddy.
I wish I could get them to come out of the camera the way I saw it, with less post-processing.
Usually I am driving somewhere with the camera in the truck and I only have a moment to stop and shoot. So either the situation has passed or I am late to somewhere and don't have time to really play with exposure.

I have another similar shot I'm working on. The actual scene had glistening rain drops all over the grass and such, but I can't get it to show up right in the picture.
Frustrating to say the least.

Thanks for the time though guys!
Andrew

I'll add others as they are posted. It helps me too.

After studying the different edits and pondering a while, I decided to have another run at it.
