I'm a sucker for sky shots...and this one's a beauty! Personally, I would prefer it without the skyline, but I can see why you would leave it in. Just a matter of taste. The angle here is so nice with the dark clouds on the right really setting off the rays and blues in the rest of the shot. Very nice.

Beauty is so in the eye of the beholder. For those who don't see it as beautiful, then keep that negativity to yourself. I think the scene is beautiful and the shot is perfect!

IMO, I don't think it is beautiful. Nice try.

A lovely sky. I like the sliver of horizon it "grounds" the picture. Colors are a bit purple for my taste - feels a bit unnatural.

The colors are nice and the clouds are beautiful. The picture is just a little too artifact"y" for my liking
