    Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR


    Taken at random. Did some editing using Photoshop. Didn't know which one to post, can you tell me which one you prefer.

    Thanks for looking

    First looks more natural to me, but neither is really more than a snap. Not a keeper for me.

    When your out you see these stunning cloud formations and take photos but its often the case when looking back at the image on the monitor you really wonder just why

    I'm with RM

    The first is slightly less mangled than the second, so is the one I prefer. Neither are particularly spectacular, just pretty regular cumulus clouds, slightly over-edited. A sky has to be pretty special to hold up as a photo all by itself. Check out "Tornado Titans" for some really good examples of cloud formations! Even they include a little of the landscape to put the clouds in perspective.

    I have to agree with everyone else here. They might have worked (or at least, the first might have worked) as part of a wider landscape, but on their own there's not much point to them really.

    It would look rather good with a decent landscape underneath it - it's a good picture element, but not an engaging subject in its own right. As such, the better one is whichever worked better with what's underneath.

    WHS. Nicely coloured record shots but to be something more you really need something else to show the massive scale of the clouds- say an horizon at he bottom of the image.

    Save them to put in a picture with a poor sky
