Here's one that I took up in Glacier Park in Montana. A bit photoshopped as I manipulated the picture to accentuate the grain for effect - why? I don't know, it seemed to add to the atmosphere of the time and place...

The sky almost looks like we're in a long tube. Very nice!

Nice job, geoffs

Your composition, your "eye" is excellent in this photo...

It brings back warm memories...of a swim in Lake McD a few years ago.

Well, you can, at least indirectly the way I did...

I selected for the just the cloud areas using the Selection Brush Tool in Mask Mode and then inverted the selection. Then I adjusted the contrast to accentuate the light and dark areas of the clouds. The result is both higher contrast and the "graininess" that you see in this picture. I'm sure there are much more elegant ways to do it but I'm just not knowledgeable about what they are. Besides, I like the way in which this turned out.

Oh yeah, I should have been more specific... I wasn't using PS but instead PSE2.

Thank you, monkey!

Glacier looks that way from the southern end of Lake McDonald. If you've never been there, then you owe yourself a trip!

Sounds complicated but it gives me something else to play with. :-)

Thanks, digcamfan!

Warm memories? You didn't really swim in that lake, did you? I've always felt that it was way too cold to swim in, being glacier fed and all. I know my body wouldn't take that kind of cold water!

Only the toughest of tough can handle swimming in cold water!

Great shot and I like the editing that you did, it enhances the picture a lot. Very nice.

Well, I guess my toughness is only skin deep then :-)

Thanks for the compliments on the photo, Amy. Good to have you back and participating!
