That's an amazing photo, did you do any color enhancing to it? Amazing that nature could just produce something like that. I put an interesting cloud formation/sunset photo on my blog last Sat. or Sun.

Yes, I did, but only slightly. Usually the first thing I'll do is use "Autolevels" in Photoshop just to see what it produces. It pulled a lot of red out of the sky above the clouds, but it removed too much red from the clouds, but I like the way the sky became a lighter, but unrealistic blue, for this time of day.. I reverted back to the original and increased the blue and reduced the red channels slightly, just enough to seperate them a little more, but not too much. I'd say it much better matches what the sky looked like that evening.

What version of Photoshop do you use, I just got 4.o and am having a great time learning it.

I started out with Version 3 years ago, but I'm currently using 6. I'm thinking about getting CS because 6 doesn't handle the plugins I'd like to use for the files from my work.
