Christian, I really like the second one! There is something about subtle yet dramatic toning that is compelling.

Thank you Virginia. I guess the effect is from the deep graduation between the dark edge and the glowing corner. I flipped the original vertically to place the light and open corner in the UR corner so the eye. movement would climb from the darkness into the light.

Very interesting - and it seems very personal. The colored cloud in #1 looks like it has a personality. Yet the same colors in the second reflect place instead of person. I try to place the first picture in context with the second and it creates a lot of tension. Good abstraction, or maybe even expressionism.

Great pictures!

the first one really seems to have personality! In a book of Terry Goodkind there is a "marker cloud" that magicaly follows the target to show its location, This one could be such one :wink:

the second one, has a nice mood and could also be used as background for portraits. (Could be from the land of mordor :biggrin:)

Thank you all for your comments. Sorry I am so late in following up. Work and family matters...

Well yes, that little puffy cloud had a personnality - a short lived one. I followed it from the start to the end. All in all, maybe 5 minutes.

Both are very nice and would be interesting for use as sky replacement for shots that need some sky improvement.
