Two storm pictures
Lens: Tamron 10-24mm Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Assorted 
Posted By: MRHPhoto, 07-18-2012, 08:33 PM

So here are 2 storm pictures I took recently.

First is one I took last week of a storm that went by as we were closing. I drove north of town and was looking east as it kept going. The clouds were underlit by a neighboring city, but the sky was clear afterwards and you could see the stars above. I cropped out the foreground since it was distracting.



Exif: 10.00mm f/5.0 ISO:100 25.00Sec


Second was today, after basically having no rain for 2 months, we FINALLY got hit by a nice hard/loud summer thunderstorm (Too bad almost every farmer has plowed over their fields already). This was the front as it was coming through. Apologies for the lack of cropping, it was 3 pictures taken at 10mm so the distortion was kind of crazy and I couldn't crop it and get everything in.


Exif: 10.00mm f/3.5 1/80Sec Stitched together in Adobe Photoshop




Which reminds me of a picture I took like 3 years ago with an old Canon Powershot G3



Thanks for looking!

Thanks Yeah I just found out that while they auto fit on my screen, even on the computer in the other room they show up full size....which is still 40% of the original lol. Sometimes you just don't realize how big a raw file really is :S

Please post smaller ones if you can. Hard to appreciate them at this size.

Just did. Hopefully they are a bit more manageable now.

Much more manageable. Thank you. I really like the first shot a lot.

For comparison, here's the original un-cropped version of the first image, interested in if you guys prefer the original or the cropped one. I didn't do much of anything to the foreground though so I'm sure I could've darkened it a bit with brushes. I just figured having too much dark/black blah in the foreground made it a bit distracting.
