this is a nice find, good job spotting the clouds. I like how they lead you into the frame, but it seems to lack something to be 'drawn towards' maybe a stronger subject in the horizon

Lacks interest for me. The cables are also distracting.

A different crop and a different angle would have worked for this shot. I think that the clouds would have worked all by themselves for this one.

nicely spotted but the tight crop is giving a bit of pixelation noise.

This picture is very cool with the clouds forming that way, in a row, I think the trees take from the shot though, if there was any way you couldve gotten around them it mite work better but I know alot of things dont always work in our favor, hehe
