Default Storm Clouds over Treeline

Captured from the dam at White Rock Lake, with the E-M1 Mark II and 12-100mm f4 M. Zuiko. Conversion via Adobe Photoshop CC/camera raw and a good example of "expose to the left". When I opened this file in Adobe camera raw, the white clouds were exposed almost to the point of starting to clip and looked white with no detectable detail, but I could tell from the histogram, both at the time of capture and in the computer at the time of processing nothing was clipped. Some slider play and the introduction of a gradient mask brought it all back and the extreme exposure also made it easy to raise the level of the trees and keep the detail clean and sharp.

G'day Greg

Yes mate - very strong clouds making it a beaut image overall
It comes up on my screen as a tad darker than I would like - but as the old saying goes 'ya can't please everyone'

It's darker on my office screen too, but good at home where I created it (on an admittedly un-calibrated screen....I am less than the truly dedicated hobbyist, LOL) and it's good on my iPhone screen. Too many variable between all the devices in the world for probably any image to be optimal everywhere.
