This is the north shore of Flathead Lake. I just happened to be down here doing ice shots (the 3-4 inch layer of ice lets you see the sand ripples below, very cool). The clouds just presented themselves. I am really proud of this image, and I would like to score above a 6/get in the top 50%

Very expansive feeling to this - colors are great. What probably hurt you in voting is the 640 pixel size limit. Shots this grand are hard to get across in such a small size. Doesn't take away from it's value as a photograph, just makes it harder to get the score you want.

nice, but the halos ruin it.

beautiful cloudscape, I would have tried to fix the halos on the things on the left in the water, otherwise great use of dynamic range

I can see basic rules of composition at work here with the placement of the horizon line and the rays of light. Something is missing though, perhaps it's visual drama or perhaps the whole thing is just a bit too blue? When I put my hand over the left side of the frame, I found I didn't miss it as part of the overal composition. The true focal point is the rays of light, and that should take up more of the frame. Overall, it's a decent image that with some different cropping could be even better.

A little too much blue for my liking. Good composition though.
