    Wonderful Pics, how do you manage to get the sky exposed correctly without losing the low-lights on the ground?, some kind of dynamic range extending software or a expensive camera? or perhaps you know what you're doing and I don't.. :doh:

    Cheers

    I have a canon EOS 400D and polarizer filter on a 18-55 Canon Lens . Basically i use manual mode and correctly expose for the sky first. I then use adobe elements and corel paint shop pro photo x2. The options i use most are lighten shadows for the landscape , midtone contrast and enhance adjust lighting!.

    Sometimes the landscape is too dark to sort out and i ditch the photograph , i really need the sun to be out and shining on the landscape while im pointing away from the sun towards the clouds.

    It's called effects John. I suspect the BW one doesn't look too stormy in colour.

    I did B&W because it gives a real impact of the approaching storm clouds , we didn't get a storm but it really does give that impression.. I myself prefer in B&W as do others but here is the colour just for you of the second shot!
