Stormy weather and Faith

Stormy, but there is always space for a bit of Faith.
Another photo I had around, again gimp processed. Some people wanted to know a bit more about gimp, here you have the documentation (in various languagues).

What a storm! It's that kind of storm that make you think "I better stay home".
I like it, goes well with my mood. It's incredible how depending of your mood some pictures likes more than others, and when you switch mood, switch taste.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I was sure this was HDR and then when you said GIMP...I had to find out what that was..I had never heard of it. I am going to download it and try it. Do you know how it compares to photoshop?

Me encanta esta fotografia, el pedazo de cielo azul que se deja ver entre la nubes es el broche de oro para tan magnifica foto!!

I don’t mind gimp processed because I haven’t clue about it... but the photo is just amazing!

hermoso colorido. la mancha de cielo azul parece que desentona, pero es lo que hace diferente a esta fotografía.

Sorry about the (big) Delay, Dan. Basically gimp is an opensource and free photoshop. It is pretty good, it also supports plugins, etc (you can even run some PS plugins)... but I must admit PS is better, how better? There are much more plugins/actions/etc. for PS, so you can usually do the same with gimp but the price is much more time processing. BTW: as any (big) software if you are new to it you have to add the time learning how to use it.
So why I use it? Because I usually have GNU/Linux on my machines, and I can not use PS under linux! Remember I'm photographer part time! :)
A friend of mine showed me Aperture (for MAC): WOW!!!!
