I dig the dark sky. I don't dig the brush that obscures the house from the foreground, or the dust from my sensor.

I rated this one amongst the highest in the competition. Shame it didn't end at least in the top 10.

Beautiful B&W...the contrast of light to dark is very nice. This looks like a high-placing shot, so we'll see how it turns out.

great exposure, work well in b/w, good location, but I don't like the foreground, bit distracting to me.

Really neat looking sky but the fence and sky appear to me to be more in focus then the building. I like the border but think you could have gotten away with a little more cropping of the sky to put more emphasis on the building. It is a well composed shot and good luck in this challenge.

Really great shot. There are things floating around in the clouds. Aliens, birds,or dust bunnies? Awsome contrast. Good composition. 3 out of 4 ain't bad, still gave it a 10

Good use of contrast and good choice of crop. I think the bright white spots are just a little distracting.

I think this would have been better if the fence were not there? 7

The sky and the fence really add to this photo. Contrast may be a bit high but other than that its a good shot.

nice composition...did you airbrush this? or burned? cant be because of basic edit. Nice job though!

I like the fence in front, but maybe a bit less of it, and more sky. Nice contrast.

Nice contrast and DOF. It could have used a little wider angle to include more of the house. 6

This is a good image. The forground is well placed and adds great depth to the pic.
A good angle for the house and the sky is great.

I like the strong contrast of this picture, but there seems to be some "dust" in those clouds?

I like the clouds!
