F20@1/20th sec. Finally, the placement of the 3 stop graduated reduced density filter worked as desired. Tripod as always, is necessary.
In photoshop, 3 images blended together. Darkened to lighten as learned from Doug Steakley. This enhanced the image.

Brenda Tharp taught us how to use the GRD filter in Creating Visual Impacts.

First Pick by the Editors.

Brilliantly! The depth and tones are fantastic with rich colors and dramatic lighting. Very pretty, Bunny! I knew you would like him :) #1311082

Doug is a fantastic teacher. I'm so thankful that you recommended him. He's just like Jim Zuckerman!!! #8926507

Everything about this image is perfect, Bunny -- the sky is splendid and I love the way the lighter arc frames the barn and the fluffy mass of clouds at the horizon on the right balances it. So very nice. #8926920

Mitch Spence level-classic September 24, 2010

No doubt about it, Bunny, much drama in the light, the sky, and the overall composition. #8927647

Bunny Snow September 24, 2010

Thanks, Mitch. I loved this sky, but also loved the lighting on the barn, and the overall composition. Hope I do better this time. #8927663

Terry Cervi level-classic September 27, 2010

Love that sky, Bunny! Just gorgeous!! #8932800

Debra R. Harder September 27, 2010

WOW...stunning image, Bunny! Love this!! The lighting is truly superb!! Deb #8933727

Bunny Snow September 27, 2010

Thank you Terry and Debra for your very kind and generous comments. It was a beautiful evening after the storm, and it helped that I had my 18% gray card and that my 3 GRD filter was perfectly placed across my lens. In Photoshop, it took only a short time to work Doug Steakley's technique, which added better detail to the barn. Capturing images right in the first place, lessens DD work later.

I went from capturing this, to doing rehab pool exercises to strengthen my leg and hip, then spent minimal time on the computer after dinner. #8933762

Beautiful nature details and great tones Bunny! #9083892

Bunny Snow December 06, 2010

Thank you, Daniella. I love this capture, and wish the judges did as well. Perhaps I can learn to improve on it next month when I re-take Lewis Kemper's class.

I appreciate your comments. #9083919

Thank you, Pat.
This is one of the last pictures I had taken before putting away my camera to intensely exercise and make my legs stronger, so hopefully I can walk again.

This image calls me, to pick up the camera again and start creating more images.

Thank you for your comments.

Have a very happy and healthy holiday. Avoid the genetically engineered "food" to provide health to your body. #9122257
