Hi Dan,
cool shot! 8)

My only suggestion is to apply a bit less the second version the whites looks "hot" (too bright) and the photo loses a little of its delicate, dreamy mood.

This post is old but it show the value of woking selectively on contrast with controlling portion of image.. A magic wand tool alowing to select only the blue and dark grey to raise the contrast would have help here for a perfect result! :wink:

This is often needed with skies or sunset pics!

I like the first one best. It's always important to make sure the shot looks natural and that there are no hot spots.

I think I would have used curves in Photoshop to adjust the contrast in the final image. That would allow more control over the highlights in the clouds.

When will someone create a polorizing or ND filter add on, or plugin?

I think PL filter is not possible to implement in software. As to ND filter, it is easy to implement, we will add this to our to-do list.
