Yeup... it's an interesting shot.

Very dramatic sky, but overall, it is a little dark!

Yeah, I like this shot. Maybe lighten it a little bit but other than that it is interesting to me.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Actually, I tried to lighten it up a bit, and now I'm sure - I prefer the darker one. Here's the lightened version ........

The lighter one ain't too bad, either! You can actually see more detail in it...

Thanks again. BTW, not to change the subject of the thread, lest one of the mods slaps my hand, but, how do you like your Tamron 17 - 50 f/2.8? I've been thinking about getting one.

The clouds look great; almost painted... but I almost want to see more contrast.

It's VERY VERY handy, and the sharpness is great...

I was a little leary about buying a tamron, i don't know why, but for the price, it's wonderful. I think you'll find that it's versatile and easy to carry around. The only thing i've had a problem getting used to is the zoom...
It turns opposite of what the zooms on canon turn. It's not a problem so much now that i'm used to it.

I don't think you'll be disappointed. I carried it to disney world, and was able to take some neat shots inside the dark rides when i bumped my iso up all the way. It's a very handy lens, and runs circles around the kit lens.:D

Try it out and see what you think! Just remember, it doesn't have a red circle around it, and it's not an L, but is sure acts like one!

Here's the original, as requested.

To: "ILoveMyCamera"; Thanks for the mini review on the Tamron - That's exactly what I've been hearing about it. :)

A bit more info on the image: The original was taken in RAW, and converted with DPP. Sharpness was set to +4, and the "Landscape" Picture Style was applied. B/W conversion was completed in Photoshop Elements 4, via an adjustment layer, another layer was used for brightness/contrast adjustment, a bit of dodging and burning on the lower (color) layer, and then a "yellow" filter was applied.

Probably not the best workflow, as I was just experimenting, but in the end, it looked like something worth posting for comments. Thanks again to all who responded.

No problem...

I like the color shot of this picture almost as good as the lighter b&W!

But then again, i know nothing about all that pp you discussed, either!
