I agree, If it weren't for the off-centered dome, it would be a pretty boring shot. Turbulence was a spur-of the moment Title, I didn't want "untitled" so I went with that. Now I like it, as the dome creates a nice contrast to the sky.

Thank you to all who comented.

Hey now. Adding this to my favorites. People were pretty harsh on you saying that your subject was the clouds. I mean, come on...

Wow is that dome off center! I like the drastic, exaggerated composition. It sure makes the sky take the stage! The clouds are quite grainy, though. This happens to me when I fiddle with it too much in Photoshop! Nice work.

Dramatic. I like the contrast between the man-made, balanced architecture of the golden dome and the chaotic gray of the clouds. Man is off-center in the world of nature?

Interesting perspective and composition. I really like the gleaming dome against the very stark and ominous clouds. This image also seems oddly balanced which isn't usually the case with such off-center subjects. Well done.

great clouds

nice shot, I like the image with the color of the dome and the color of the clouds...looks like something is going to happen....however i feel there should have been a little bit more of the dome showing..

I like the graininess in this picture, and the contrast between the indigo grey skies and the golden cupula. ~9

The clouds are really pixelated. Don't know what went wrong here. Otherwise it's pretty cool.

Top photo, nice composition - 9.

i'm not one to mark people down for not meeting the challenge (and won't here), but a comment re:composition - the dominating feature of this photo is the clouds...the building almost seems in the way to me. a bit of a distraction. it's nice and all...but your title tells me you feel the same way about your nasty clouds.

i like it...but your subject isn't off-centre, since the subject is the clouds. does that make sense?
06/16/2003 03:44:46 PM
the title of this photo suggest that this is a picture of the clouds, which is centered, and not the dome, which then becomes incidental in this shot, but i like this and will give you a nice score
06/16/2003 03:29:18 PM
Interesting shot.
06/16/2003 03:10:54 PM
Whoah now this really *is* off centre, a bit too much so for my taste though, doesn't allow me to see any more detail to that interesting structure. Nice cloudcover, good luck.

Cool shot! I'm assuming you desaturated all of the colors except for the yellows in the building. Makes for an interesting, dramatic shot. My only nitpick would be that the desaturation kinda added the element of excessive grain to the sky, but it's still interesting.

Now this I like alot. Something that pushes the boundaries with the challenge topic and turns out something artistically as well as photographically intriguing, clear, and concise. Excellent work. Love the clouds, they look like a fresco painting. Good luck.
