Speedwell, Tennessee. This shot was actually taken midday - I altered the color of the sky in PS (hence the digital darkroom category).

Very dramatic! Excellent capture! Also, you did a great job on altering that sky. I find myself doing that quite a bit, and I have to say I often struggle with the color tones because they sometimes seem un-natural. I am learning Photoshop via "trial and error", so I sometimes think I'm doing things the hard way... This shot is wonderful!

This is fantastic John. The sunlit BG and colors you used are gorgeous. This would be great printed and hanging.
