The secret is there is no secret, Lannie. :-)

I thought the original post appeared unnaturally bright but wasn't sure whether that was how the scene looked or your preferred rendering. The adjustments were only through Curves as it became apparent that the cloud detail was preserved in the original. I didn't save the reworked version, unfortunately, but will be happy to try again if you post the original.

Thanks to Michael Chang for suggestions as to how to improve this photo. It still is not up to the level of his own treatment, which I hope that he will post again--and give away all his secrets while he is at it! --Lannie

Election Eve, 2008, Livingstone College II This was shot at Livingstone College after sunset on the eve of the 2008 election. Since Livingstone is a historically black college founded not long after the Civil War, this election was particularly meaningful, and there was a sense of quiet optimism on campus on this Monday evening before the nation would elect its first African-American president.
