Bonito encuadre y atmósfera de tormenta muy bella. Demasiada saturación? Enhorabuena.

I guess I am somewhat jaded, because although this looks spectacular, it also looks HDR-ish. No matter, even if it is, it stands out as a wonderful image.

Hi,
No HDR, just dodged the sky a little to let the layers of clouds show through.
Thanks for looking,
Dave

I like it. It’s the kind of work that is compelling if seen large or small.

Well... allow me to disagree.

By now I understand that you have some kind of a fondness for darkness. For me, the image is simply underexposed, under-processed and over saturated, all to the point of muddy. The picture has an excellent potential for post-processing, to the point of spectacular. I played with it for a few seconds in Apple's (rather limited) Preview, and I saw it. I will refrain from posting anything this time, as my understanding is that you prefer the way you posted it.

Good afternoon Slobodan,
I would be delighted to see a modified version of this photo. Sometimes I get stuck on an idea, doesn't mean it's right.
Thank you in advance,
Dave

OK... given the usual limitations of working with a small jpeg, the changes are subtle, also trying to preserve your "look & feel":

Very nice Slobodan. Frankly, I admit to believing the original scene was dark and that is what Sailronin saw and wanted to preserve. Let's see what he has to say and what he prefers. I hope you notice the dust spots on an otherwise spectacular image. This reminds me of the other image where the sky does not look quite right but is the reality as the maker saw it (Wind and the Cold North Atlantic.)

Hi Slobodan,
I like it, looks sharpened and lightened.
Thank you
