SiJ 2016 11

1/800, f/5.6, ISO 200
Interesting scenery but exposure doesn't look quite right to me. Need a Levels tweak?
 
@bilzmale It's pretty much the way I saw it, that's why I left it (mostly) that way and tried not to overdo shadow and highlight recovery in post. The diffraction effect in the clouds is also real, but wasn't visible with the naked eye because it was too bright in that region to check visually. I exposed (i.e. spot-metered, as I always do) for the upper edge of the cloud bank to limit (if not avoid) blown highlights but didn't use exposure correction in camera. Note that I don't use Lightroom or Photoshop (I'm a GNU/Linux guy), so a "Levels" tweak doesn't tell me anything, so my thinking may be way off ...
 
Interesting indeed.
I can imagine the foreground being this dark, all the light is coming from a very low sun and is obstructed by the heavy clouds.
