MCP 04/12 #1 Showers/Wet

**Thanks for the overwhelming response to this photo...the comments and awards are greatly appreciated and unexpected***

 

This was a rainy night down the street from the house as you can see in the reflections and the rainy clouds. It was processed with 5 exposure HDR and finished up in PS to clean up noise and some ghosting. I reprocessed the quick first attempt to achieve this. I like the sky and cropping much more. It took several passes through photomatix and a ton of noise reduction on the sky to clear it up and mask back in the main objects to maintain the detail and sharpness.
