We were treated to amazing and very dynamic cloud formations that afternoon. This was taken just an hour or so before my previous post.

PP works:
- Auto levels, minimal curves adjustment, NeatImage, resized and sharpened using USM

The one in the workshop was taken an hour earlier.

Thanks for viewing and have a nice weekend!

Hi Allan,
Very good contrast and composition. The colours are very satured, those green with the lights on are great. The tower is distracting though, maybe it could have been clone out or cropped out to put emphasize on the cloudy formation only in that zone. TFS !

Hello Allan!
Nice composition and nice colors!
The clouds are great!
The vegetation are wonderful!
Well Done!

hi there, nice colors and great composition, the clouds are amazing and the clarity is great, well done, thanks scott

REALLY nice shot here Allan! I love your pp work on this! Your clouds look like our clouds...some sun, some threatening rain. I think you did a fine job on comp and color!

such clarity on the kite bro! galing!

Hello Allan,
Cloudy, but they are indeed beautiful!
A well composed view, where the action is nicely captured...
Good light and attractive rich colours!

Great job on the saturation and colouring. Once again you took advantage on a fabulous sky to add impact to the scene.
I think I would have removed or cropped out the tower on the right but otherwise, this is great!

Superb dramatic sky and saturated colors. It gives me a great freedom feeling.



The clouds are incredible here - they look like they were painted :) Amazing view!
The kite creates a brilliant effect :)
Very effective:)

Hello ALAN,

Magic colors, wonderful job!

:) later

Hi Allan,
What a great photo, the clouds and scenery are awesome, but the kite flyer in the center..perfect summer shot...what a great feeling I get looking at this photo! Remembering times past flying kites as a kid and with my children...TFS

Hello Allan.
Very beautiful. Great capture. I like the light and colours, similar to your previous post. And that sky. I probably would have tried to leave out the tower in the b/ground. Still very well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hi Allan,
What a beautiful sky, a perfect backdrop for the dragonfly kite.
Good lighting and exposure makes a very pretty picture.

wow I did'nt realize that cloud formation has this many great images. Very nice shot.



Hi Allan,
I have missed many beautiful shots of yours . . . the clouds in this sky called me from the thumbnail; they look as if they were painted in. The beautiful kite calls attention to it perfectly, like a beautiful brooch on an elegant dress.
All the best,
