I would have liked to see the bottom of the cross with some foreground. The photo in its present state feels like it had the bottom chopped off.

very nice - love the b/w and the depth this offers. The cross makes this an emotive shot - at least for me. It's simple, yet sepaks volumes

Nice contrast and composition.

Good! It has a wild atmosphere to it, the clouds are amazing. The tilt of the cross is ideal, the dark stripe of the beach at the bottom could have been a little lighter, it comes over too dark and unbalances the harmony of the image. Other than that, an excellent entry.

Very effective use of b/w. Great sky. Looks like it is somewhere on the altiplano of Peru or Bolivia? Am I right? Good luck!

Love the Contrast and the sky.

B&W tones are wonderful and dynamic - hues are not flat. The 45 degree angle to the cross and looking up adds dramatic interest. My critique on this one is that had you further integrated the background to the object of interest this could have turned into a really unique shot. That cloud formation in the back that looks like it is escaping the main front takes on the appearance of a bird in flight/object in flight/escaping spirit. A slight change in angle would have placed the 'foot'/tip of this cloud at the center crux of the cross such that it would take on the appearance that a spirit is taking flight from the earthly plane.
