*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations on your ribbon, well deserved and easily meeting the challenge brief

I seem to be having the pleasure of critiquing several of your excellent images and here we have another. Your choice of subject and processing very clearly meet the challenge objectives in an appealing and very competent way. I love that you have used mono allowing us to concentrate on the lovely tones throughout the image without the distraction of colour.

The viewpoint and the way the landscape leads us to our focal point, the man, is an excellent choice, his inclusion also gives us a sense of scale and a feeling of the insignificance of man against the grandeur of nature. The gorgeous backdrop of the stormy sky and diffused sun is magnificent and completes the image.

Although you have a high contrast image you have managed to retain detail throughout, except quite obviously the sun itself, well done. I think it is a well executed submission that has been justifiably appreciated here. Your making my job most enjoyable, thank you, Sid
