L.
I am a great fan of this type of cloud photography, stormy weather and what I call dark mood photography. I would bet it would be more dramatic if some one could do some tone mapping or HDR on it for you. I would do it but mine havent come out right yet and I am still practicing the skill. It seems to make wonderfull changes to the clouds. I like the starkness of the tree against the sky. thanks for sharing.

If the tone mapping or hdr can't be done to see how it would look, IMO, I would crop it just above the tree...As is, it has to much uninteresting sky...the dark stormy clouds behind the tree look more "stormy" than the clouds above the tree...Just a thought...

this photo has already a good shot. the only thing to bring this more approachable is to minimize the space above covered by the sky or cropping it out and adjust a little bit contrast on it.

Frank, when I was a kid growing up in Texas, we had storms in the spring that would make the sky so dark, you had to drive with your headlights!
