Storm Coming (For you, Jack!)
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Storm Coming (For you, Jack!)
Storm Coming (For you, Jack!)
8/23/10, DD. Dedicated to Jack Ryan, because I am sure this is one lighthouse photo that he will not have in his collection! This is Pemaquid from the other side- the shore down from the little restaurant. I had a cloud in another photo that I thought was shaped like a funnel cloud, so I inverted colors and shaped it into a tornado. I will post that photo as a "before". I also found lightning brush to use in PS. I also changed the sky, since it was sunny at the time and darkened the whole scene.

Love it? Absolutely!!! I have not been to Pemaquid when the sun was right to shoot from this perspective...but in about 3 weeks, I will be there to try again...but even then, I am sure that I won't be able to shoot anything like this beauty. Thanks for thinking of me...very much appreciated. What a wonderful photograph...love the POV...absolutely outstanding work. Into my favorites gallery...!!!

I have had very limited success with lightening shots Carol! I don't think I have the patience or the reflexes!
A wonderful capture and weather feature image, well done!

A fantastic reconstruction and a unique view of this oft-photographed lighthouse...so happy not to see the pool with the reflection in it! :) That tornado looks real enough to scare the pants off me and love your lightning bolts...very realistic...I'm running for cover! Superb, dramatic shot with excellent pp room effects! WTG, Carol!

This site has lots of different free brush sets you can download and add to your brush set in PS. Lightning brushes were under the Nature category.
