Not really that bad.

I like that photo very much. Way too much underrated. It's very basic but that's enough to get the message. It certainly fits the challenge. The unique idea alone would have ensured a high score from me. Unfortunately I hadn't time voting.

And Journey's comment probably says more about her intelligence than yours ;-)
It's interesting how most people expect to see "something" and don't accept a blue sky as a subject.

That's a classic comment.. I give that a 10!

nice blue gradient :) I think the image would be much stronger with someting other than sky to view... - setzler

Lovely shades of blue. I know that it is of the sky, because of the challenge. Otherwise I would tend to think that it is a color card.
04/19/2003 09:14:43 AM
straight to the point! At least this isn't cluttered with trees or any other irrelevancies. Where can I get my 20x30 print ?
04/18/2003 10:03:19 PM
cool blue sky...not a very stimulating picture, though.
04/18/2003 04:57:20 PM
This is a very pretty blue with nice shading. It's incredibly creative and brave to submit this much negative space (or incredibly lazy), but it lacks any focal point...(backspaced silly comment).
The best I can go is a 6. Rob the Swash

hmm...very, blue. I'll bet you're getting a lot of comments like that.
04/18/2003 01:30:30 PM
Another interesting approach with an original idea. It shows creativity...

Should have moved the subject a little further off-center...? :)

Definitely Blue. I like the transition from the darker blue to the lighter blue. Looks out of focus (Just Kidding!).
04/16/2003 11:03:03 PM
I thought about doing the same thing! thing is, we didn't have any good weather that week
04/16/2003 08:22:56 PM
nice idea displays weather very well

Now all you need is the TV weather person! Clearest shot I've seen. Great interpretation.

OK this one made me laugh. That might have influenced my scoring. =)

Well it`s not the worst photo in the challenge, maybe second to last for you.
04/16/2003 11:28:23 AM
Difficult to score this one. Its a nice 'fine arts' type pic, but it could be done better without using a camera (I.e. Gimp it up). Dont be discouraged by low scores and snotty comments, but do try and submit judgeable work next time.
04/16/2003 06:52:18 AM
I think your subject left your picture.
04/16/2003 01:02:53 AM
The title says it all... Too bad there's nothing interesting to look at.
04/15/2003 11:58:21 PM
alberquerque???? no need to answer.
04/15/2003 04:45:33 PM
This is lacking something... oh yeah, creativity.. Sorry, it's just a little boring. I guess it is weather tho.
04/15/2003 02:26:07 PM
No subject, nothing. Still it meets the challenge...
04/15/2003 01:54:13 PM
Yes it's blue. Hmmm... I like the gradient. Interesting to look at for a while... Bold!(7)

Ha, ha. Is this a comment on the challenge topic?
04/15/2003 10:22:21 AM
i have to say I like this a lot. i was hoping someone would do it.

Very funny! Actually this is all I had to take photos of all week long, just plain blue sky! I thought about doing this but I wasn't game enough. You did it, good luck to you! You are very courageous, I admire that, although you'll probably get eaten alive!

04/15/2003 02:51:14 AM
wow, I wish I had your weather all week! If I took this shot, it would have been pure white from all the overcast days we had. :)
04/14/2003 11:33:53 PM
Very creative. I like the subtle gradiation of blues here.

Hahaha, looks like one of my "blank" background sky template pics! Nice blue, and pretty non-mainstream, I like it. :) 7.

Like this. Original.

04/14/2003 03:58:21 PM
can't argue with your title. might have added 'crisp' or 'warm' or 'cold' just to give some more feeling w/the title. gutsy submission. 7
04/14/2003 02:12:54 PM
Could this photo BE anymore simpler? (Chandler Bing) Very gutsy, I just love the blue colour. :)

About as basic as you can get I guess, and lovely colours - perhaps a problem might be that there is no real way of proving this was a picture of sky at all! Still, a proof of how lucky humans are to live with such beauty right above our heads. 7.
04/14/2003 12:24:42 AM
Yup, it sure is a blue sky. Nice tint of blue too.
