Give Me Shelter from the Storm

This is a composite image that is the result of blending five photos together.

For each file I made basic adjustments and reduced noise and chromatic aberrations in Adobe Camera Raw before opening them as layers in Photoshop. I aligned all of the layers and then changed the blending mode of each of them except the bottom one to “lighten.” Using the lighten mode allows only the brightest portions of the layers below to show through. I also added curves and hue/saturation adjustment layers.
