Point taken, Jason. My comment was drawing on an existing pet peeve and I didn't read your post closely enough. Your comments here are well reasoned. My apologies.

Regardless, best of luck to you Adam. You captured a dramatic moment and your composition is spot on.

I kind of agree with Jason that there is no shadow under the clouds. Or anywhere. My skills are way below any of this so I am not one to squawk but that was a good point. If there is no PS I would say he used a GND filter which is what I use to get some really cool contrasing shots. But still there is more than sharpening here. No shadows. The Storm Passes photo doesn't really do it for me either and I'm surprised you would go for that. Personally I like the birds just cause I know how tough it is to catch them and it is a good picture.

Good luck Adam.

Thanks Jason. As I said I am not good enough to know how these shots are made/taken. If I did I would probably be out shooting and pushing my photos instead of sitting at a Cad station. I just know what I like and like Adam there are a lot of great photogs on this site alone. Happy shooting.

There was no neutral grad. Just sharpening, cropping.

Nice photo! Green usually means hail and I guess your 4-Runner found out.

I would also like to vote on this thread as the least likely to have an argument in it...O wait, there already is! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think in the grands scheme of things these photos do not look terrible as far as photoshop is concerned. Except for the Octopus House. I'm not just this huge HDR atheist, but the post processing is by far too much on that one. And it is amazing to me the kind of comments I've heard about it! People think it is the most beautiful and incredible photograph they have ever seen! Anyways, those are my thoughts. My favorite teen image is mine, "Green Supercell", and my favorite adult one is "Isoceles Peak". Please remember to vote for me, Adam Adkins, "Green Supercell"! Thanks so much!

I tried to vote for you, but in the end it asks for all of my personal information. :shock: NO thank you!

I like the 4 dear one and the wheat in the adult section. Quite a few of these pictures in both sections look altered, some more than others. I wonder if this was really a qualifying factor. Either way I dind't vote at all. It is election day and I just have had enough of people who lack a certain trait called humility. Vote for me p p please.

You might find this hard to believe, but that is something I NEVER do. Not even the occasional, "white lie".
