Every evening I had this kind of constellation between sunset and storm here in Cuba. Beautiful and scary at the same time – at one point it almost blew my camera off because the wind started so heavy!
On this photo I have used Adobe Lightroom, Skylum’s Aurora and Adobe Photoshop. My Workflow Looks like this: I import my photos to Adobe Lightroom, create a few version of them and take, whatever I think, the best out of the photos using Adobe Photoshop.
In this photo, if I remember correctly, the sky comes from the HDR photo and the lower part from the edited Adobe Lightroom photo.
You are asking yourself how to combine the photos? Stack the photos as layers within Adobe Photoshop and use a layer mask and the brush tool to make the layer underneath visible depending on the opacity.
