looks like a bad storm rolling in.....

This is very strange. The picture honestly isn't real good but this was one hell of a good find. I can't say I've ever seen anything like this. It does have some awesome colors though.

This looks unnatural - something doesn't feel right about it.

silouete on ground could be more compelling; super cool sky

That is truely breath taking, wonderful colours, I love it!

Really cool photograph. Definately meets challenge:)
04/10/2003 11:10:17 PM
Very Impressive and intense. The strong blue, top left, is a bit ... much.
04/10/2003 07:18:53 PM
Cool! How did you do this?
04/10/2003 04:02:57 PM
What a great cloud!!
04/10/2003 09:21:33 AM
You were lucky getting a shot like this! Those colors are amazing, well done!
04/09/2003 07:11:47 PM
this is a ten!

What an amazing scene!!! I think the picture could've benefited from a tight crop to remove some of the darkness below but an amazing picture none the less.

Wow. I wish I had seen this sky too. Thx for sharing the moment
04/09/2003 11:08:50 AM
Great capture. Too bad you couldn't make the foreground fit (maybe two photos combined with PS).
04/09/2003 03:05:37 AM
Nice colours. I would have cropped a little more from the bottom.
04/08/2003 10:20:35 PM
Wow, very nice.
04/08/2003 10:03:52 PM
Weather shot! Very nice too.

this looks like a dragon!

This picture would work wonderfully for either the color challenge or weather challenge. I wish I could see a storm like this so I could get a good shot for this week. I wish there was more dynamic range in this picture. It is nearly impossible to get the houses exposed well and keep the color in the clouds. At least I can see some detail in the houses and in the storm clouds. The blue part of the sky does look a little blown out. This lighting situation is very difficult to handle and I think overall you have done a good job working with it here. It is a strong photo but I think the blown out part of the sky and the underexposure of the houses weaken it. I gave it a 5 but have to say that you did a very good job with it.

Very nice image. Very bright sky and good colors. The only thing is that the brightness of the sky makes the bottom half of the image very dark and it somehow adds distraction to the photo.
04/08/2003 02:04:45 PM
good job, nice photo.
04/08/2003 12:53:50 PM
Cool cloud
04/08/2003 11:00:39 AM
Flaming clouds! Gorgeous. Crop the photo so thatg is all we see.
04/08/2003 02:39:19 AM
This is a hard photograph to take because of the great variance in light and dark. The bottom half of the photo is either too dark to make out the houses or too light to serve as a silhouette. The visible sky is too washed out towards the left side of the picture. And the colours of the clouds seem almost too intense.
04/08/2003 02:15:20 AM
Wow, striking! I like the contrast between the colorful sky and the colorless 'sleeping' neighbourhood.
I wonder how much, if anything, you tweaked the contrast/saturation/hue in photoshop. //8//
04/08/2003 01:19:22 AM
Nice catch, I think that a closer crop of the clouds would make this even better, as the houses and stuff interfere with the natural colors of the sky
04/07/2003 10:46:42 PM
half the image is great, the other half is not.
04/07/2003 10:20:22 PM
cropping the dark undefined part at the bottom would have helped alot
04/07/2003 09:26:31 PM
this is a very crazy sky
04/07/2003 08:48:17 PM
That's exactly the sky I ordered last week - looks like it showed up at your house! No fair :)
In short: I love the colors, but I would've cropped out the light blue color in the top left corner, giving the sky more weight. A closer crop from both top and bottom would've created a stronger doomsday ambience
04/07/2003 08:06:44 PM
Thats an awesome cloud, the forground is boring, but the sky is awesome
04/07/2003 04:57:12 PM

04/07/2003 10:43:44 AM
