It's going on 2 years since I moved to Florida, and one thing I'm having difficulty adjusting to is a lack of shoulders to pull off the road onto. When I lived in upstate, NY, there was usually a place to pull over, get out, and photograph a scenic.

Anyway this was photographed from a moving car, while my husband drove. Funny, but my last submission was too...hmmmmmmm I see a pattern forming here.

Nice picture, however without the title it would be impossilbe to see the irony.

While I understand the irony, I don't see it visibly without the title. I do see a mixture of sunlight and rain clouds but the fact that it is a sunshine state doesn't speak out clearly except perhaps in the form of the plants and tree in the picture. The colors are nicely quiet lending a dreary atmosphere for more affect. I hope that rain did you some good.

I would have rated this higher had the image been able to express the idea without the title. otherwise to me, it is just a cloudy sky over a building.

Woah, stormy weather coming! Every photo I've ever seen of the Sunshine State is sunny, this is the first I've seen where that is not the fact. Thanks for proving to me that it isn't true. Irony pure, good one.

It is an ironic title for your state, but that isn't really implied by the photo itself without the long title.
