Shutter: 1/60

Date Uploaded: Nov 6, 2005

This shot was taken during a 5pm jog with my friend. Surreal is the only word I could truly descibe the atmosphere of the entire picture. One side would be totally bright, while the other -this shot- was dark as if a storm were coming. Two full bright rainbows appeared, one above the other. Actually, no words could describe the scene and atmosphere. This was chosen because of the contrasting colours and my friends told me so.

I wasn't going to edit this at all, but playing around with it, I decided to keep it at that.

Editting:
- Resizing
- Curves Adjustment
- Hue/Saturation:
- Yellow Channel: Hue = +20, Saturation = +10
- Black Frame: 20 pixels

I love this. I'm from Oklahoma and this is a familiar site. You've captured beauty and anger/violence in one shot. Good job.

Great sky! The red flowers in the front are very nice and so is the fence.

Very dramatic sky. Great contrast to the green and red on the ground, with the fence giving some good lines. Great job.

The sky is very good, but there's too much of it. You could cut about 15% off of it and not lose any of the picture's intensity.

Sunshine and approaching strom always produce interesting light. Very good composition; sky is very dramatic.

It could be my tired old eyes, but is this photo a little out of focus? Love the composition and colors.

I love the contrast between the dark colors on the sky and the amazing greens on the ground...Great shot!!!!

I like the dark clouds contrasted with the bright foreground. I don't think that the building on the right adds any value to the picture and it could be cropped out.

Nice. I like the contrast in lighting. Perhaps a little less sky, or landscape vs portarait would have improved.
