a break in the storm brought some interesting contrasts.

unfortunatly, i was in the wrong place most of the time.

ten to fifteen minutes after this shot came another deluge.

the first shot is awesome.. the texture in the sky and how it contrasts with the smoke and buildings that caught the light is awesome.. nicely captured and well exposed.. you made the most out of that good lighting..

the second one is a bit dark for me..

i'm with you on #2, dustin

it was just about to rain, so it was getting dark real fast.

here's an edit trying to capture more of the smoke/cloud contrast.

that is better.. it also could be that i was still impressed with #1 and it never stood a chance.. hehe..


the edit does look a lot better.. does capture the mood better.. makes me think of the industrial revolution era...

actually, i just played with the shadows/highlights to bring out the detail.

the first shot is pretty much the way i shot it originally, but the second is a serious crop,

the sky was getting real dark real fast and it was zoomed digitaly , so it took awhile to

get it "just right"

just a minor comment in that that the smokestack looks tilted a bit int he crop, lens or subject i cant say.

The fist shot is very cool

BTW shutterfly is offering a free poster print (16x20) if you use the code A00P-RINT. Normally like 15 bucks.Might work nice for this or for anyones elses photos.
