Long time no cloudscape, eh?
This shot is really one of my favourites from my sky captures. It isn't really new, I took it quite a while ago already, but I didn't want to flood your inboxes ^^
I might even make it a print.
simply stunning. i like how the the big cloud on the bottom just folds out as if it's a hand, with light shining through it, blowing the clouds away. you, my friend, have captured something very beautiful.
This is a great photograph, the subtle golden colors shifting to dark blue are very nice, as is the sharpness of the photo.
However, I feel that the dark cloud on the lower right of the photo makes it seem unbalanced. Perhaps if there had been a way to center the dark cloud or keep it out of the frame the focus would be more towards the center of the image.
Just my opinion. It's still a fantastic photograph nonetheless.
thank you very much, both for the nice words and the critiques
however, I am afraid that I disagree with you about the dark cloud. to me it balances this piece nicely with the bright parts, and I generally try to avoid central compositions, since they take away from the overall suspense of a piece, and make it less interesting
thank you for your crits!
yeh, ou're right about the slight noise, that's due to the sharpening of the image, since my cam does not really provide a good sharpness. that's why I made the print smoother
Looks really great. I like how you got a mixture of all things - dark and light, and even the thin wispy and big thick clouds. (= The bright rim of the middle one works so well with your title. I'm not sure what to suggest to make it better. There's no point either if it's already a print.
