Incarnate Word

In a first for me, I totally forgot to post these here.
I looked for them last night and didn't find them in the January archives like I thought, and realized my mistake.

Driving out of downtown on Broadway I had already noticed the unusual clouds, but as we passed The University of the Incarnate Word it all clicked so I made a quick (and safe) U-turn.
I shot the scene from a few angles and locations--all in infrared because I felt that black sky would really show-off the clouds.

This was the best by far.
I've posted several different versions online but after 6 attempts at fine-tuning it in Photoshop I was finally happy with this edit.
There's a hot spot in the clouds that's blown-out on the print I just made, but I can live with it for now.
This is another new print that will be hanging in the gallery for the show next week.

These are terrific shots. Congratulations on the gallery show. I'll have to pick your brain one day on how you did that.

An Update--this print sold in my May gallery show, and I haven't gotten around to making another for my portfolio. It's one of my favorites from 2008 and looking at it again makes me miss shooting in infrared a bit more than usual.
