A visit from the critique club (again) ;)

Wow, this photo is excellent. I simply love the negative space use here. The sky is so large and clouds add so much depth.

I love the detail in the mountain and the water around it. I think you did very well getting this much detail into the photo.

What more is there to say to such a good photo? I think you did very well.

The use of empty space at the top works well here for your theme. Nice crisp focus, good light.

I love this so much, so simple yet so dramatic! This would be fantastic, framed and on the wall. 10

I like this, especially with black and white, but for me there is just too much sky.When I view it I scroll down so the top part is cut off and wow, it takes my breathe away. With all the clouds, that is all you see, I don't focus on the scenery at all, I just focus on the clouds. THere is just so much of them! 7.

Great shot! Excellent composition. I can't find anything wrong with this picture. It's just perfect. I'm not used to give out 10's. But here ya go: 10!

Too much clouds. Black and white was a good choice for this pic. Nice job - Inspzil

composition is great .... 10

I think this would have been a better photograph in color. The mass of gray cloud in the upper right quarter of the picture is too undifferentiated in tone to make an interesting black and white photo.

I think the amount of sky you included is great, it sets this photo apart from others in the challenge. Excellent. 10.

Though the sky is dramatic, I do find there is too much of it, and the most interesting parts of the sky are closer to the bottom. Since the most dramatic portions of your image are all in the lower 1/6th of the photo, I think having a panormic crop of just the mountain itself with some sky above it to be a better frame for the photo. Quite a good capture nonetheless!!

Awesome black and white.
01/17/2003 12:22:19 PM
freakin awesome. good use of your available image size .. the sky, clarity and composition on this rule. like the bw
01/17/2003 12:15:14 PM
Cool, very nicly done.
01/17/2003 11:48:16 AM
Maybe a little too much negative space. But the landscape mixed with the black and white are perfect.
01/17/2003 10:45:55 AM
wow, heavenly!
01/16/2003 08:14:05 PM
I like the photo very much..grayscale works well and the starkness is very appealing..My only suggestion would be to change the title..I see a storm coming. It is one of my 10's.
01/16/2003 07:24:42 PM
This is one of the strange photos that I think are so beautiful for being black and white, can you tell I love black and white? I love the sky, and how barren the ground looks. I give you a 10! -Annida

Oddly enough, I like what I consider negative space at the top of the picture. It makes the landscape look isolated and barren. Good use of bw, I think.

Wow! This is great!
01/16/2003 12:23:11 AM
Normally, I would say too much sky, but the cloud is so imposing this way, I feel sorry for the poor little mountain underneath it. Excellent shot. 9

I like the picture, but the title doesn't seem to match. The sky looks far from tranquil, but the photo is outstanding. 8
01/15/2003 12:30:22 PM
Baaammmm! Here it is! 10
01/14/2003 11:31:19 PM
Beautiful shot, would have loved to have seen what it looked like in color though. Also might have liked a little less sky. Very good none the less. 7 =-)
01/14/2003 11:12:26 PM
Just stunning...love the black and white. I'm sure you agonised over the choice of it over colour. The depth is fantastic. The composition is also excellent. Very subtle tones in the ground. Well done.

stunning, loads of people will say its a skyscape but I really like it
01/14/2003 05:53:53 PM
I love skies like this. I love BW. I love this picture!! What a great idea to include ALL that sky.
01/14/2003 03:57:26 PM
This photo is stunning. I don't like the title. This looks everything but tranquil. It looks very turbulent to me. It may be because the black white makes the clouds look stormy. I'm not going hold the title against you though because you were there. It may have been the most calm and peaceful day ever. Great work.

I love his photo,It works so well in B+W, very moody well done
01/14/2003 02:08:08 PM
I would like to see less sky - rule of thirds and all - the sky just completely overpowers the photo
01/14/2003 12:41:34 PM
Excellent photo. Reminiscent of Nicholas Trofimuk....
01/14/2003 01:49:42 AM
Utterly cool image. Great use of negative space. Good lighting and moody. The clouds really cooperate with you that day.
01/14/2003 12:20:49 AM
I like this a lot. I just wish I didn't have so much sky to look at. Maybe crop a little smaller. Not much, just some. Good luck!
01/13/2003 11:52:59 PM
This is the only photo that contains less land than sky that I rated this high. I think it's a great photo, done in an unconventional manner.

Beautiful photo. Going black and white was a good idea! Cub
01/13/2003 06:28:37 PM
Very powerfull picture... The cloud looks like an eruption from a volcano. 9.
01/13/2003 04:39:04 PM
I'd have preferred it if you'd cropped out a bit of that cloud. The bottom section is really good.
01/13/2003 04:17:21 PM
Love the sky, but I think there is a bit too much of it. More of a crop would help.
01/13/2003 03:41:25 PM
That sky doesn't seem tranquil...... awsome shot. Good job. 9
01/13/2003 03:12:38 PM
Oh yes. This should do well.10
01/13/2003 12:20:18 PM
Beautiful black and white!
01/13/2003 08:33:07 AM
Cropping out more of the sky would make the picture more effective I think. jgillard6

Great use of contrast and composition, as well as mood. 8
