Still think it's a great image, the voluptous cloud above the people is captivating, WD on TT!

I loved this, was drawn in immediately by the stark contrast and the looming skies, then I noticed the people...awesome! One of my 10's for the challenge.

The title put me off. This image is so much like a set for a play that I find detrimental any allusion to nature. Its artificiality is due to a processing pushed too far; the sky is the painted drop (a cyclorama), the totem like and other foreground elements are made of some material suggesting trees and rocks, the ground could be imitation of snow covered sand and ocean. Itís an interesting image though and a great find that you might want to revisit

Spectacular image. The extreme contrast is perfect. I feel like they're exploring an alien planet

Wonderfully processed image... the people providing scale and emotional link to the otherwise alien, surreal image.

I really liked it until I saw the people. Then I loved it. Top so far.

Not my style of processing, but expertly done just the same.

Very good handling of high contrast while preserving detail. Reminds me of the feeling I get contemplating of works by Ansel Adams.

Incredible storm clouds. Looks like life on another planet. Nice job.

Dark and ominous, a little too much in the foreground, I nearly missed the two people.

Ansel Adams"ish" (although his horizon would be smack dab level by instinct, I think)... Such loveliness everywhere.
