Gerald, the colorful formation and the clouds look good. However, this week’s challenge theme is the one pinned, wind effects. Challenges are open for one week, Sunday to Saturday.

I like it and it’s an arresting image, but looks over-polraized. The sky is intensely blue - more than it would be IRL and to me that just detracts from the overall quality. The clouds have been hit with the clarity slider pretty hard and are showing a lot of noise as a result. I think processing might be able to rescue it if you wanted to give it a go. As it is, too harsh and crunchy for me. Probably it’s dramatic enough without trying so hard.
