This was taken in Fairmont, WV while on the way to the store. Was so amazing to see how the rainbow and the storm was conflicting against one another. It was raining and then stopped to have the rainbow appear, shortly after it began raining again. It was the most beautiful thing i have ever seen. Was so amazing to see how the weather can change so easily and rapidly.

No don't delete it. It's still an interesting shot. You did what you could in the few minutes you had available. So what if it isn't as "perfect" as some others. I think we've all learned something from seeing it and reading others' opinions. I'm still glad you posted it.

Beautiful shot, nice colors and great composition. Without the title, the picture doesn't convey any conflict message.

Beautiful background colors but I dont find the forground very interesting. Maybe you should had given the tree a litle fill-in if you want it on the image at all. Dont know if this suits the challenge.

Maybe would have been better for Things that Go Together.

nice color, but bad composition.

I think I would have cropped more of the bottom. I like the skyline alot though. It looks like a imressionist painting.

Very dramatic shot - good use of color and contrast - almost surreal.

I would have shot around the stump, not through it. It is seemingly blocking an incredible view.

This would be much better without that ugly branch. I don't really see a storm, just a poorly exposed branch blocking what would be a lovely sky and rainbow. 4

Wow, what a great capture. I was going to suggest cropping out some of the top, but the more I look, the more I like it the way it is. (Reminds me of a Magritte painting, "The Empire of Lights."

I'm not sure I get what you meant for the challenge. Rainbows and storms don't compete or conflict. If there were no storm, there'd be no rainbow, it's more like a harmony of existence than a confliction. Know what I mean?

Very nice capture...

i don't understand use of titles. most people try to explain their image with them ( which is not necessarily a good idea). if, in fact your title is telling me that this photo is about the rainbow and storm then why is my view of them blocked by the big bare sillouette of the trree. if your title merely identifies and describes then I don't feel the need for an interpreter. very pretty image nonetheless

It's a stretch for me as a conflict, since it's more like harmony having a rainbow with a storm. Itís a shame you didnít have a higher vantage point over the houses as I think it would have made for a better 'photo op'. I suspect that glass & program filters helped with the vibrant colors, which I like. All in all I enjoy your picture and appreciate the fact you did the best you could with what was presented to you at the time.

tree blocks main subject
02/25/2004 11:08:06 PM
I like this idea.
02/25/2004 06:26:45 PM
Is this real? Looks like a watercolor. Very stark.
02/25/2004 05:59:01 PM
beautiful...you probably already know that!!!!!!!!
02/25/2004 05:57:47 PM
I find the tree to be distracting. The real subject of conflict is in the background covered up
02/25/2004 04:56:37 PM
I love the colors in the sky just everything else is way to dark.
02/25/2004 08:47:27 AM
This is awesome, but I think that without the tree, it would have been better
