I love all the bazillion kinds of ways to process photos. You can make something a simple black and white or go crazy with HDR or textures. The possibilities are endless.
I snapped this photo during my stormchasing trip to Nebraska. It’s doubtful that normal person would have realized those puffy, cute clouds would turn into a raging thunderstorm a few hours later, but that’s another topic. While I was there for storms, I couldn’t help stop over and over again to take photos of some of the beautiful Nebraska countryside.
It may be cliche or uncreative of me, but I do so love trees and when they are found isolated in cool settings, I dig that. I loved the bigness of the tree with the rolling prairie grass behind it and the fluffy clouds all around. It was almost a mission of mine on this trip to find scenes like this.
Technically this was processed simply by fading the color, overlaying a texture and applying some additional vignetting.
