your title is insparational
but your picture is gloomy
maybe color would make the title work?
or even a different title would make the picture work.

Hey..I love your title and also the feeling your photo tranfers to viewer, but I think you could make a better composition...7

I like how you made this black and white. I like the somewhat of an angle you took this at. good luck!

Are these mangroves? I love their spindly "fingers" against the cirrus clouds. Interesting perspective. I like this. 8

This is a great example of a composition that benefits from being cast in black and white. The complete grey scale is represented, giving richness and depth to the shot.

Nice tones - wonderful sky. Not sure, but wonder if showing more of that dramatic sky would be even better? Good job!

Nice contrast

This is a realy cool scene ... the clouds mimicking the branches is a nice bonus! This might have been a little stronger if the horizontal branches could have been avoided. Good shot.

Very "ansel adamish" One the best ones I've seen so far.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very cool. Love the texture and the imagery
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2005 11:18:35 PM
best so far, great forms and tones, My only complaint is that the branches blend into the dark band of backround (Mountains?) minor quibble with a very nice shot.

This is a great shot! 8

I love this. Great job

Wow awsome. That's so cool it looks like a place in the underworld or something.

Nice black and white effect,

What a strange landscape. I really like the use of black and white for this picture. It makes the scene even more unreal.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2005 12:21:18 AM
Very nice. Good tonal range.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 11:31:44 PM
I like the concept of the black and white "reaching" trees. It's a little eerie which adds a nice emotional impact. The sky is also in an odd condition. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the black and white treatment of your phot. The foreground is really quite busy, but great sky. My favorite part of your photo is the branch on the middle left side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 07:37:51 PM
Wow. I really like this photo. the clouds rolling in is really neat. I think it may be just a little to dark, but that me being picky. 9

very pretty contrasts and textures.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The subject is too busy and fades into the backtround. It's hard to see it. The clouds are great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 02:38:26 PM
Beautifully done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 01:20:16 PM
This is really nice. The swirl of the upper clouds lead you right into the branches. Very nice composition and I think the B/W works extraordinarily well here. Great work!
