About the Image(s)

This was taken on a trip to the Burren. The Burren is a limestone national park in the southwest of Ireland and has unique geological formations and flora. The storm hit minutes after this shot was taken on my Canon 70D and Tamron 16-300mm lens

A nice image with the storm clouds rolling in.I put your image through Topaz DeNoise and Sharpen.
I then adjusted the Brightness and Contrast and added a little more saturation. This is what I came up with.   Posted: 06/16/2021 16:41:18

Stuart's changes added intensity. I like both images.

Great image. The sky is great. I might shine a light on the rock in the foreground to make it "pop" a bit.   Posted: 06/18/2021 12:13:16

this is such a dramatic moment!! and such a great shot that captures the weird light and all the details of the rocks with clarity. Yes adding some light on the face of the big rock makes sense. But how would you do that?? great shot!?   Posted: 06/19/2021 19:01:53

Storms add so much atmosphere and you caught it.   Posted: 06/19/2021 21:54:44

I hope your camera was protected from the storm that hit. Looks might have been rather intense, especially after Stuart's rendition. d;¬{D

A fascinating place and the choices of subjects must have been a little overwhelming - at least it would have been for me.

I did my typical Dodging & Burning - added a blank layer set to the Overlay blend mode, then painted with a soft round brush with 5% opacity in white to dodge or black to burn. I brightened the subject rock and darkened its shadow areas and the flat rocks in the background to help the subject rock to stand out more. Thoughts?   Posted: 06/20/2021 14:16:28

A wonderful, moody and dramatic image made even moodier with Stuart and Tom's adjustments.   Posted: 06/20/2021 15:20:53
