    Folks,

    Greetings. Caught these cloud shots the other eve, what do you think, do they need a land subject to anchor them? Comments, criticisms appreciated.

  4. That second one works just the way it is.
    Actually a superb shot! :D Nice work.
     
  5. Really like the first Yamo!

    It sort of leaves me wondering what was beneath it that this sky couldn't make look great?

    Alex,

    Greetings. Thanks for the comment...

    Dan,

    Greetings. You write:
    Thanks much. Uh, I saw these great clouds and just dashed out with my camera and snapped away. Beneath is my neighborbood, houses and telephone poles and the like. The second actually has some forested hills under it, but the problem for me is the size of the clouds with respect to the distance I would have to include to get a horizon or some land feature would overwhelm the details that I find interesting in the clouds. The small jpeg doesn't show the 1st at its best... I wish I had shot a second row and a bit wider to the left, though... next time.

    Cheers,

  7. Depends what you're trying to do. I usually do because the clouds are usually a part of something I love, like, say, the Southwest.

    Your second photo reminds me of the pictures of Jupiter which makes it way cool, I think.

    Number #2 definitely is abstract. Looks like a monster's upper teeth about to bear down on a prey. :))

    Hi!

    My opinion is that the colors in number one don't match at all...
    I mean.. the red color dont improve the photo..

    in number 2 you can not really tell that it is clouds...

    I hope that you like my strait but friendly critic! :smile:

    Joe,

    Greetings. Thanks for the comment. What I wanted to hear... I can't tell what it looks like because I already know.

    Daniel,

    Greetings. Thanks for the comments... appreciate the honest assessment.

    Cheers,
