After the Thunder

By acaado1  
A typical summer's afternoon! I took this shot just after a 2 hour thunderstorm from the col that separates Great Langdale and Little Langdale valleys.

Then I thought I would give Paul Morgan's techniques a go, and so......

This final version is after I have tweeked just curves and levels, but I used 18 layers with a lot of changes to opacity, a lot of erasing and some burning and dodging. Then I selectively used smart sharpen.

Please let me know what you think.
