Sky enhanced using high pass filter, with curves and levels applied to that layer. Then flattened with some more curves and then a USM applied.

Christopher,

You have created a very impressive work of art. Nice achievement. What is the resulting file size? If you care to give us more technical details, I would be very interested. Thank you for posting this.

Jim

My photo has made the front page of the local newspaper here.

Should add this news paper reaches over 200,000 people and one of the oldest in Australia.

Neat - in the sense that it doesn't look real. Good capture.

To the human eye it was impressive, but this photo really brought out just what the eye can't clearly see.

Wow. That looks fantastic. That cloud formation looks scary- did you get a decent storm out of it?

NOOO!

The storm pretty much missed us, however together we copped a direct hit and I wasn't able to get any decent shots of it.
