i love the tone of the sky..
it's so pale and dramatic...

thank you for sharing.

Thanks. I'm having good results pulling clouds out of dark skies by shooting at very high iso and dragging the shutter. The clouds in these last two images weren't really visible to the eye, but the D700 pulled them out. It's an effect I like.

Wow, looks like a post-nuclear landscape or something...very dramatic.
what do you mean by "dragging the shutter"?
all the best

Hey Joanna, thanks for your comment. Dragging the shutter simply means using a slower shutter than you normally would. Here I used a 1/5 sec, which, as you obviously know from your own shooting, is rather slow for handheld shooting.
