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! #2434121

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