Hi Gaylord,

This comment is part of my participation in the Critique Club. There's a big backlog on requests, sorry for the delay. So...

The drama in this scene is clear. The figure/ground of the two diagonal parts of the photo are well seen and composed. But.. the overall effect is damaged by the excessive saturation and the color noise within the blues and yellows. I'm also wondering who tightly cropped this is - I suspect from the lack of detail that it's a pretty small portion of the overall image. I'll finish by restating that the lines and composition are great. The colors are complementary and would work well together. If this were sharper, desaturated a bunch and lacked the color artifacts (particularly in the blues) it would be a much stronger image. You really don't need the exaggerated colors to create a dramatic image.

awesome cloud formations, seems the yellow is almost tooo vibrant taking away the awesome coolness sight of what the dramatic clouds are missing for me.

A bit too much saturation here.
