Greetings Eve, Another beautiful cloud shot. Nice job with the processing.
Hi Rich, I actually had to use a tripod for this one. For that reason, I don't think I'll be taking too many photos with the intention of making them HDR. I appreciate knowing you have visited. Thank you for your comments!
thats an amazing photo eve! can you see the 'planet of the ape's' face in the bottom of the cloud? fantastic, yellow star!
You damn, dirty apes!!
Big, dramatic sky. We don't get enough of that here in western Washington. Keep them coming Eve.
Maybe I'm a little old and out of touch, a technological neophite, but I'm still just amazed that I can sit down at my computer here in western Washington and watch the seasons change there in western Montana. I love it!
Gorgeous shot, Eve. The cloud formations are fantastic!
Fantastic photo from some amazing clouds. Keep on cloud busting!!!
Wow Eve, every time I take a look at your collection, you manage to put up an amazing new picture. This is once again a stunner and certainly a yellow star!

Thanks for the positive words, everyone.
Ralph, it is 180 degree reflected light. For some reason, the colors of the sunset in Dillon are often equally, or even more spectacular in the east.
A yellow star, Eve!!! Tell me do you use multiple RAW exposures and the run some soft?
I just bought a 16bit (RAW) capable camera to start playing with HDR...
Hola Eve, me gusto esta foto para panoramio elections suerte
Reynald, I have to tell you I am completely ignorant as to the advantages of using RAWS instead of tiffs. In fact, I usually just save my photos as jpgs, which work well for me, and also aren't so large. I have over 70GB of photos on my computer at this time, and I am running out of space.
For this photo, I took three exposures, that were adjusted to 1.0 step apart, with the middle one being -.3. I also used a tripod, which I almost never do. Most of the time I do take multiple exposures and if I get a good photo, it is because I take enough pictures to get lucky once in awhile. I am certain you are much more knowledgeable about photography and equipment than I am :).
Gracias alala! Eres muy bueno. Me honran!
Eve, don't worry about the technique, the picture is just GREAT. I'm new (3 days) to this HDR stuff and I am trying to learn everything as fast as possible!!! BTW I do love having a tripod, even a small one. But for HDR I think it seems mandatory.
Amazing light, beautiful shot!
Beautiful sunset and HDR work!
Beautifuly tonemapped dusky cumulonimbus!
Thanks to everyone who has commented on this photo. I am sorry if I have not responded promptly. Part of the reason the clouds were so striking that evening was that we had quite a bit of smoke from wildfires in the atmosphere at the time, which you can somewhat see in the sky closer to the horizon. The combination of smoke and the reflected light from the sunset made the whole cloud a lovely dark orange/pink. I compared the original photo with this one recently, and was rather surprised to see minimal differences even though this was one of my first attempts at HDR. I am lucky we often have amazing clouds in this part of Montana. Almost every evening (and morning) is a wonderful photo opportunity.
Hi Eve, this image is simply fantastic! Congratulation. Regards, Marco
