Lightning on the farm

The original image was shot in RAW. I created a tiff at two stops under to create the dark stormy look.

I then created a tiff at one stop higher for the highlights.

Finally I used one of the standard photoshop techniques (gradient; inverse clouds) to create the lightning.

Sure there's a lot more to it, but those are the basics.
