Storm approaching from the south. I waited as long as I could before escaping. Looks heavily PP but just moderate increase in contrast, saturation and sharpness. Reduced noise.

Very powerful image, Terry!
You were really happy with the light!
It doesn't happen that often.

thank you for posting it, Karina

Whoa, ominous and dramatic looking sky. Run for cover!
Great shot - love the brightness in the water and on the beach, while the sky is looking very dark. Excellent capture Terry.

Hi Terry,
Quite a dramatic view and very well captured. Excellent light and fine natural colours. Superb composition too. Great posting Terry!

Hello Terry!

Very spectacular picture very well captured. One can feel the might and see the beauty.

Hi Terry,
What a dramatic sky! I like this threatening atmosphere! We can expect many scenarios with this kind of image! Like, great shower for these people who had let their steps prints in the sand! :)
Excellent composition and very good rendering of colors!
Excellent! Annie

Hi Terry!
Very strong composition, Perfect atmospheric shot with wonderful dramatic sky .
My compliments!


Beautiful picture! the light, the sharpness and the perspective are very nice!

Hi Terry

Indeed there is a 'line' along the top of the foliage where your PP work is visible, but it's minor indeed and the effect is superb.

Especially strong is the composition, very nice rule-of-thirds placement of that horizon.



another amazing shot coming from you...good color tone...good job! impressive..tfs


Great composition and excellent job of exposing the sky. Vry dramatic image with great color. TFS

Awsome image Terry, lovely dramatic sky.

Regards Mark :)

Hi Terry

Wow! This is very impressive, I like the stark contrast between the warm colours and inviting sandy beach to the approaching menacing storm clouds. Dramatic and moody.

Great POV used to capture all of this action. Well done.

TFs and best wishes,

Nothing else to say, but... YESSSS!

Bravo a great shot!!!!

Such an interesting contrast between the smooth and "tranquil" sand and water and the ominous and dramatic sky! Especially nice since you didn't process much.
