Thank you for your comments of yesterday. The image was the result of 3 layers combined to achieve the even exposure and dramatic clouds. It took quite some time to achieve this but I do feel that had I not that the image would not have been worth posting.
Today's image is something of an experiment. I was going to produce this using the "duotone" technique (image>mode>duotone) but this was greyed out and therefore not selectable. Instead I used "photofilter".
Much dodging and burning was used on this image. I think it is quite obvious as I think on this occasion I applied it liberally and a little clumsily.
