4th of July Storm Clouds

In the better late than never category, here are a few photos of the storm of July 4th that caused the Lindsborg fireworks to be delayed by one day. These were taken just north of McPherson, and while pretty intense looking, thankfully never developed into a damage causing storm. The images are contrasty, with slightly exaggerated colors as a result of the “direct positive” preset applied in Lightroom (the digital photographer’s best friend!)

  1. Lightroom is the only other program besides Apple’s Aperture that was designed from the ground up as a photographer’s tool. Excellent capabilities for both sorting and viewing images as well as processing them. I haven’t fired up Photoshop in weeks! It’s not needed for most color, tonal, contrast and similar adjustments as all that can be done in Lightroom. Photoshop is relegated to things like compositing work and enhanced noise reduction (Noise Ninja).
