Approaching storm over the Lake Tahoe area. This image overlooks Camp Richardson Beach in South Lake Tahoe, a popular resort area in the summertime-- appears barren here except for the figures on the beach which lend some human interest to the scene.

Shot taken with my Sony RX1R. Of all the cameras that I've sold over the years, I miss this one the most. It wasn't the best handling camera I've ever used, but the Zeiss Sonnar T 35mm f2 lens mated with the Sony full frame sensor was a glorious combo.

Nice. Maybe try brightening a bit, bring out the figures in the foreground. This would be perfect situation for a linear gradient filter. Just a tad.

I did do this in post, but then decided to keep more like the original RAW file. Lightening the bottom part of the frame placed more emphasis on the figures-- what I was really after was more emphasis on the storm clouds and the rich browns and reflections from the beach. The figures are a secondary element to the scene. They are not completely hidden, but are certainly not something you see at first. There is a mysterious element to the scene that I wanted to retain--

Even a nice place gets nasty weather some times. Nice capture.
