I like the first image very much… it's stunning. The second one looks like it's two images blended together but it's dramatic and the storm must have been "interesting".

Francois, there is zero editing in the second except for minor tweaks in contrast and saturation. Actually I never photoshop my images to that extent. I dislike layers and adding skies from different photos to different images. I wish I had exposed a tad longer, though, as invreasing the exposure results in unwanted noise in the shadows. I will probably drive there again, but it s unlikely I will have such a dramatic sky again.

To be clear, I never suggested that you Photoshoped this image to create your final version. I just wanted to say that the coming storm offered a dramatic change to the landscape; so dramatic that I could see two images in one.

I'm sorry if I offended you with my previous comment, it was not my intention, really!
