Hm. Well, quite frankly I feel like a bit of a sellout entering this. It already had lots of views and favourites, so I guess I sort of AM selling out. I struggled between this one and this one --> //www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=158420.

Personally I prefer the wee Monk, because landscapes don't tend to do as much for me...I prefer photos with life and a story. But this is a competition and I might as well enter what I think more people will vote for. Why enter otherwise?

Anyway, the above photo was taken as I was landing at Narita flying in from Singapore. It was pretty lucky as I had just looked outside for the first time in 7 hours, only to see Fuji peeking over the clouds at me, and what I believe to be Chiba down below the clouds.

This photo does not do the scene justice. not even close.

thanks for lookin.

I remember the first time you posted this on the forums. It was as gorgeous then as it is now. I really love the way Fuji is floating between heaven and earth. Just spectacular.

Stunning. Is that a city in the foreground? The athmosphere of the photo is amazing. I can't say anything negative about your shot. Just superb.

Insane how there is this little profile of a town in the lower part and mount Fuji seems to float in heaven. Great light on the clouds.

I remember this picture posted in one of the forum threads ... liked it a lot then, but I like it even more now.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 10:42:05 PM
Remember seeing this at the end of the slideshow, hope to see this in the top 10. The light off the top of the clouds is amazing, and the eye just focuses to Mt. Fuji. The colors are just stunning, my goodness, I love this image.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

You captured a great athmosphere in this photograph. It conveys to me the power and fragility of nature. I like how it is split into different levels. 10.

You've got to be kidding me. That's beautiful. I thought I read somewhere that this out of an airplane window? The luck of some people! My only 10 so far.

01/17/2006 08:01:29 PM
Wow, Amazing! Are those clouds? Its almost like there are 3 landscapes here. Love all the righ gold and orange hues.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 02:12:22 PM
I know I have seen this one before in the forums. I love this pic...it just looks so surreal. It is just amazing to me how the layer of clouds breaks up the top of the mountain from the city below.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2006 12:45:19 PM
it's almost surreal seeing the mountail, clouds and city under the clouds. Nice work. 8

This looks like a double exposure. How the heck did you pull this off? 9 just for blowing my mind.

Geesh, not another sunrise. ;-)

01/17/2006 07:39:42 AM
probably just me, but this seems to lean a little to the right.
Suberb photo with regards to colour, detail, mood and composition.
Good luck /8

Beautiful shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 10:31:12 PM
well, I was going to respond to your PM, but I got to this first, so I'll just comment here ;)

Thanks for remembering my interest in getting a print of this at a custom size. Truth is, I'd probably have bugged you about it by now if my financial situation were still comfortable enough that I could patronize the arts. Things being as they are, I'd have to wait a while anyway, so there's certainly no rush.

(and it goes without saying but - great photo)

This looks a little bit like Pedro's. Not as good though. In fact, this one kind of sucks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 04:11:18 PM
This is a really good picture. The horizon line could be shifted to the left a few degrees and then made into a poster!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 12:53:59 PM
Lovely rich colors. Beautiful scene for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:36:00 AM
What an unusual image! I really like the saturated colours. The miniscule detail of the city skyline works well against the powerful elements of nature represented by the clouds and by Mount Fuji itself. Lovely light!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 11:07:56 AM
I gave this a (9). A bit blurry on bottom and top, and a little noise bottom left. But it is still a 9 to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 10:33:38 AM
Is this shot from the plane?Nice colors,little tilted to the right 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 03:27:52 AM
Very impressive, just like Pedro's shot, taken from an airplane?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 02:57:39 AM
And somehow, I feel like I've seen this before.

Lovely colors though and what a crazy, surreal scene. I would like the clouds to be made out of mohair, please.
