The black border is the top of an apartment building, I like the way the sunbeams shine from behind it and the texture of the clouds. I'm curious about how this will do, since it is clearly very 'outside the box'...

I like the colours, light, and the unorthodox placement of the clouds alongside the frame's edges, with empty sky filling most of the frame. I don't like the horizontal black band in the bottom, I think that the image would be much better with it cut off (I realize that it won't be fit for this challenge then), and I don't think it adds anything to this shot.

Agree w/ ElGordo. I am sorry this didn't place higher. It's a striking image that deserved better recognition.

Sadly, very few recognized the artistry and quality of this image, with a huge number of insipid and inferior snapshots scoring higher.

there's something so fantastically fake about this picture. It's like putting the sky in my pocket. 10.

Hmmm, not sure about this. With the big black border only on the lower edge, it looks like it's a picture file that's loaded corruptly. Maybe you'll do better next time, Cindi. ;-)

hum....I'm wondering what the black line is below our sunset? Perhaps a little too much crop? The detail you've captured in the clouds is amazing, the black void at the bottom of the shot, not so amazing. Sorry.

Beautiful clouds and sky, but the black on the bottom bothers me.

Man I sat here a few seconds waiting for the rest of the image to download before realising there is no more. I guess I don't have to tell you that it's gonna hurt your score.

Very cool effect. I like the simplicity of the shot - good eye.

oops... what happened to the bottom of it?! The clouds look full of potential and the rest of the picture looks great - was the file corrupted?

Don't know what happened here, but the bottome 20% of the picture didn't load.

doesn't work for me

The black block at the bottom really ruins this picture for me.

v interesting - somehow could almost be Gursky. I'm sure it'll be slated, but it's a fascinating approach. The weight across the frame works well for this crop, and the tonality is marvellous.

Very stylish. I love the entire compostion. THe sky is a beautiful burnt orange, and there is so much detail in the clouds. I really like the black border at the bottom.

This is one the best cloud only photos I've seen, the red duotone is really nice. I can't say I understand or like the black band across the bottom.

I like the composition except for the featureless dark section. Maybe if there was just less of that dark part. Still, I like it! 7
