Gee! Thanks so much! What a nice comment! Each challenge is making me care less and less about where I place. I mean, I get aggravated when I see the kind of shots that score higher than my personal picks or my own shots but the past few challenges I've made sure to enter something I really like and I've gotten some nice comments and I know I'm improving. I think that I will probably never have the kind of style that wins ribbons on this site (but who knows?). I'm managing to stick with it and for me, as a person with ADHD, that is a huge win in itself. Good luck, keep shooting, and thanks again!

Neat shot, light is almost distracting. Good depth.

OK, awesome! This is so cool. I feel scared just looking at this. Like someone's gonna beat me up OR hand me a frapacinno. The clouds are so great, they're scary but very calming. Great job 10

The hazy look at the center of the shot is very distracting. Nice composition and I like the looks of the light coming out of the clouds.

The DOF gets lost in the center of the photo and the picture seems somewhat tilted. I like how its framed and the subject matter.

I like this composition but would like to see a bit more contrast in the foreground.
