Farm Sunset After Rainstorm

When a rainstorm began moving out of the area just before sunset on Wednesday, I thought that would be a good opportunity to take some pictures of the contrast between dark clouds and bright sunlight. Therefore, I drove five minutes to a nearby farm where I felt the green tints of the grass or trees and the red paint of the barns would also enhance any photograph of the weather conditions.

Additionally, I hoped through use of processing to emphasize the elevated tone in the photo by rendering a scene that borrowed from some elements usually associated with paintings, since I considered the setting I was replicating, especially the dramatic texture inherent in the sky, to be almost impressionistic. The accompanying image displays the result of my efforts.
