It was very hard, but I am still VERY VERY pround of it.

No vote, comment only. However, you get the same nitpicky comment I would give if I didn't know whose entry it was. (I did warn you to wear a thick skin on this site, didn't I?)

Nice strong perspective, great detail, and I like the strong clouds. It may be a bit too centered, but that's just a personal preference.

Ah, Le Mighty Texaco. Cool shot, great colors, beautiful sky (I'm jealous, we're in the middle of another winter storm here and the schools are closed again today...). I can't say exactly what it is about this, but I enjoy it.
