[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello All
I would like to share this photo. Its quality is not great as I only had a Coolpix 3.2 with me but I find this picture so interesting because it shows so much at once. A smiling blue sky, angry storm clouds, soaking rain, a glorious sunrise and a calm ocean. How wonderful to see Mother Nature showing her stuff!

This shot was taken several miles off Ft. Pierce FL as we were crossing the Gulf Stream enroute to the Bahamas.

I have no clue what (if anything) can be done to make this photo better. I tried a little contrast. Didn't change things much. Please feel free to workshop if you like.

Take Care...Kathy

PS: We didn't even get wet!!!

Hi kathy,
What a stunning sight with the bright orange look at the bottom of the clouds and the the almost daylight color at the top. It is great to see the rain pooring down left of the setting sun. This is already a good photo, but with the big difference in contrast it is difficult to get the correct exposure. You asked for a WS, so I will see what I can do with it, eventhough I find the photo good as it is. Your POV and composition are excellent.
