During the second year of my Clouds 365 Project (2011), I captured an image that I was proud of at the time. It was a long exposure of cloud to ground (CG) lightning hitting the ground and crawling back under the storm base. A combination of CG and spider lightning. I never liked the processing I did on the original, however. I thought it would be fun and redo it. Post processing tools and technology are far better than they were four years ago, even my Photoshop skills are far superior. Below are the before, published in 2011 and the and after image from today. Leave your comments below!
Adobe Lightroom CC 2015
Adobe Photoshop CC 2015
Google Nik Software
Nice catch on the photos. There is no need for Adobe Lightroom CC 2015, Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 or Google Nik Software to get your result. Just a couple seconds with any version of the Photoshop Elements Levels tool will get the same result.
