Hi Lawrence. Ah another E-20 user :-)

When I first saw this image I was amazed at how deep blue the sky is and I wondered if you used a polarizer on your camera for this shot. The perspective is awesome and adds to the photo. The tree depicted as a silohuette is also amazing. The building in my opinion could have been left out as it is competing too much with the tree, also it subtracts a little from the "weather" aspect.

All in all a decent shot, but lacking on the "wow" effect.

The tree is like black lightning in this image.

I love that tree, it has great lines. I kind of wish it was just the tree and the sky

Good perspective pic. The sky is a little on the dark side methinks. The tree is a little distracting, but does add to the perspective of the shot.

the chaotic lines of the tree work well against the straight lines of the building.. Your stretching it a bit with the challenge though.. 7 for a good photo.

Very good composition. I'm not too sure "weather" comes to mind when I see this but it's a great shot.

love the spideryness of that tree, though weather isn't the first thing I think of when I see this picture.

Nice image. I really like how the tree is in front of the building. It conveys the idea a little more thoroghly.

Nice crispy blue sky you captured there. I wouldn't have placed everything so centrally though.

Great perspective shot, and a good approach to the challenge. My first thought was that the building should have been shot from the center, but then I realized that you would have lost the silhouette of that wonderful bare tree! In my opinion, it adds a lot of interest to the shot, and creates a sort of 'grounding' and sense of place. Very well done!

the tree takes up to much space in the picture. It would have helped if you would have moved around the tree and gotten more of the building

Nice how the building is so orderly and the tree is so chaotic.

The building on its won would be good, the tree on its own would be good, but both of them is too much.
