B&W is and always has ben my favorite medium, and this is a superb example of how a quality B&W landscape should be. Very well done.

Good composition, I like the contrast of the sky.

Good clouds on the right, but needs more contrast on the left. Evertying becomes a little too indistinct.

OHHHHH! Ansel beware - great shot. 9

Ansel Adams, eat your heart out! Awesome photo, and yet I still can't help but wonder what it REALLY looks like, i.e. in color......
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow! Beautifully composed and that sky is AMAZING! I think that the black and white definitely works here, though I'd be curious to see a colored version as well. Extremely well done!
