    Cool, moody shot, Andrew! Really like the scale — gives the image a vast quality.

  • Thank you kindly for your comment Merrilyn, The Piano Grande is an enormous flat plain surrounded by mountains, I ’m delighted this conveys something of that scale. Andrew

    wow i wish my storm clouds want to look like that!!!!!!
    damn whats your secret

  • Surprisingly this was pretty much the actual scene! The Piano Grande is an amazing place. For the photo I used “tonal contrast” effect in NIK software plugin for photoshop and converted to B&W and then some dodge and burn. Thank you kindly for your very nice comment. Andrew
