Hi Billy,

It's V2 for me, It makes a more imposing image when cropped.

Billy you have to be careful when cropping and resizing as you will start to lose quality. Although V2 is more imposing if you look at the sky it's now very noisey so zooming in a touch more would have helped.

If your not going to enlarge and print the image you can reduce the noise in a few ways, although you will most likely lose detail. One way which works to a limited degree is to select the sky and then go to "Filters" > "Blur" > "Gaussian Blur" and apply it very sparingly. It will make the clouds soft and works best on a plain sky but with a little sympathetic errasing you can bring some of the edges back.

Take care

Hi Billy, I see you're at it again with large ISO's and fast shutter speeds. I've done a mod on your first image cropped it, then used camera raw. I adjusted highlights to bring back more definition to your clouds, adjusted whites and black. I then pained the sky with the adjustment brush and increased the luminance in noise reduction. This helps take away the artifacts you have on your image. Hope this helps, but please bring down your ISO and shutter speeds for these types of shots. High ISO's don't help to get clear shots. Also, try an aperture setting of around f4, as this will let more light into your shot.
