This kind of sky always makes me melancholic. Isn't that odd? Really wonderful shot, Karen. Any idea why the locals call it that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

HA! Where I grew up, we'd call it a buttermilk sky.
Great picture, by the way. Wish I had given it more than a 7...

Wow, this is a heck of a shot! At last, I've now seen a shot of a statue that actually worked. :)

The sky really makes this picture work in a brilliant way. Great picture.

OMG, this is stunning. The way the clouds swirl out of the bush and rock apparently coaxed by the pan flute. It's about the moment and capturing it, this is pure gold.

I don't remember seeing this the first time, but the graph shows that I voted it a 9 then.

This time, it provoked me to immediately say "wow" out loud.

I saw this over at Worth1000, you should place high here also. Well done!
Bumping you Karen, you should be in the top 10.

Some of the best clouds I've ever seen, is that a statue or a model?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2006 07:35:24 PM
With so many entries, I thought it would be hard to find something that would rise above the rest- this is it. Tremendous lighting and contrast. The clouds are great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

real interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the drama that you've captured in the sky! Very nicely composed as well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 09:00:11 AM
i like how you made teh statue a silhouette...9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 12:28:36 AM
OK, this dramatic setup just works superbly. Can see why it's your favorite!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 07:21:41 PM
Amazing sky and good presentation in b&w. The statue in front adds a bit of interest, works together very well. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This isn't even close to being a nine, it should be a 20 but I can only go as high as a ten so there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 03:48:23 PM
Like the title and sky!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 03:05:11 PM
a magical feel to this, the only thing I can think of that would have made this even more perfect was if the bush on the left frame wasn't there - great shot regardless
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 10:26:55 PM
In my opinion, the best black and white entry in the challenge. The tonal range is perfect and the cloud highlighting could not be more dramatic... outstanding!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 10:14:24 PM
Majestic shot - great title. I like this one a lot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 08:43:49 PM
great use of silhouette. the tones and composition are inspiring. great job

01/19/2006 12:51:22 PM
Now that's a different and effective angle!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2006 11:10:18 AM
Wonderful dynamism and mystic! Would love to see this in colour after the challenge, especially for the clouds, while keeping the figure in silhouette. 8 for conjuring up an original idea.

Beautiful clouds!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2006 07:19:14 PM
What a great image. The texture of the clouds is what makes this photo work in my opinion. So very well done. Congrats!

There have been a lot discussions on the forums about the importance of titles. This is a very good photograph but the title brings real life to it. 9

I love this shot, it's really amazing. The sky, of course, is incredible with those clouds. The composition is fantastic, but it's the pose that is perfect and really makes the shot. The right hand, the arched back. It's Shakespearean, Greek. Wonderful image. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 03:19:28 PM
Cool shot, vaery original, it's a shame about the trees, it would have looked awesome with only the boy and the sky

I love this. Reminds me of Peter Pan. Don't know why... 10

Came back to this one 3 times now and bumped it up each time... Can't help it - this is just outstanding. Composition rules. 10

Cool (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 04:08:01 PM
the clouds really do make this shot. it almost forms a pattern that leads your eye towards the statue. the only reservation i have is the inclusion of the tree to the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 03:26:05 PM
A statue? This is the best representation of a statue I think I've ever seen. Your depiction adds drama, meaning, and story.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:06:11 AM
This is great, the clouds are amazing, the silhoutte look magical against the sky. Outstanding! Good luck!
