Nice and moody. The colors and tones are excellent. I wonder if a narrower vertical crop on the left side wold have much impact.

Stunning photo, the sun creates a powerful image shining through the break in the clouds.

A great atmospheric shot, but a little grainy. 10, nonetheless.

Stunning is the word that comes to mind. The hole in the clouds is very burnt but is balanced by the reflection on the water, very dark in the distance, a very dramatic effect. The row of houses is almost surreal in contrast to the background. The subdued colours helps the mind fit them into the image.

There's a graininess to the image, I don't know if its intentional or just as a result of the settings of the camera but it works quite well. The houses seem to dip down ever so slightly to the right, I find it distracting once I've noticed it.

Never the less a dramatic image and the winner in my opinion, a 9 from me.

The sky has a little bit of an over-processed look to me.

Love the tones in this shot, nice work.

it's an amazing scene! wonder if it would look better if you removed most of the houses, though..

I realy love this shot. it's just one of the most splended light ray captures I have ever seen. I gave it a nine but I would have easily gone 10 if a little less of the side of the buildings was showing. great work!
11/11/2004 10:17:20 AM
wow... great timing... right man at the right time at the right place. you should do well.

9 - Perfect pic. If I allowed myself to pic more than 4 10's this would be one.

well that sums up the sky around here in november - if the sun happenes to peak out...

striking photo - fair amount of noise in the sky i am not to fond of.

I'm sure this has been heavily edited - but it's very well done (for a change). Those pools of light are dramatic and nicely picked up. I think you've dodged too far in the clouds though and a touch more pick-up on the foreground would be good.

Magnificent capture and processing

Love the "eye" that caught and composed this. Terrific lighting. One of my favorites.

Although I like this image very much, being frank, the noise levels in the clouds would disturb me after a month. 6
