In the digital age of photography, post processing has become such an integral part of taking pictures, that the lines between photography and drawing or computing has blurred. Here is a sample picture I took in Smokey Mountain last year during Christmas. It was a cloudy day with a lot of fast moving dark clouds.

But since I did not use graduated neutral density (GND) filters, the sky/cloud turned out over exposed and the landscape under exposed. I almost hit the delete key when I saw this picture:

Then I decided to test my Photoshop skills by making the sky darker and landscape brighter. The trick was not to leave a separating line in between the two opposite transformations. After some tweaking, I was really pleased with the result:
