Man, I love your style. Those clouds are just crazy! Was this the middle of the night? If not, how'd you keep the house from blowing out completely?

BTW, I came looking for your port, but had "where I live" in my head and missed this collection entirely!

Catching up here (I hope), I really like this shot, very surreal effect, and very effective, and I like the shadow of the unseen tree to the left, very nice.

Nice long exposure, it makes the sky look very cool. Great cactus you have there!

Reminds me of the 50s, for some subtle reason. Your photo deals in hints and, for me, seems all that more powerful for doing so. The 1-20 is a lens that yields drama. I think I need something similar.

Very dramatic - I love it! It almost looks like a movie set. Where is this? I mean, where do you live?

Edit: I just read some of the other posts and apparently a bunch of other people also think it looks like a movie set. So much for my original idea - haha!

I like b/w shots - and this one is very nice

Love the sky, looks like it was painted on, I don't think the crop is odd at all, think it works very well.

Excellent crop emphasizing that sky. It really gives a dynamic feel to an image which is otherwise anything but. My only nitpick is that the cacti seem a bit soft and could use more bite.

Nothing wrong with odd. That's one of the reasons I sighned up for this 30 day thing. I can post what I like and not worry about votes. Try lots of differant things.
Great shot.

Funky lookin angle, think it works well tho

I like the shadows of the tree and catus on the side of the house and love the sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 04:33:47 PM
Whooooaaah!!!! I jump on the bandwagon and proclaim awe over that awesome sky and how cool it makes your house look. Oh this is going to be sooooooo much fun!!!!!!!!

I love the sky! Nice choice for b&w!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like it very much too. The low pitch of the rooftop - looks midcentury modern. With the opposed upline of the cactus. The sky adds a diagonal line of it's own. GOOD STUFF HERE. I love the BW thing you're doing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 02:03:23 PM
Very creative cropping and the diagonals in the sky put a lot of energy into this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot, very surreal. The shadows really enhance that effect. The clouds are wonderful, was this shot at night?

Suggestions for improvement (IMHO): I'd crop the top down a little more. While the sky is beautiful the house is really the interesting part of the picture. Right now the sky is a bit overpowering.

I like the angle of looking at the house, the sky makes me think of the twilight zone so thats good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 11:11:52 AM
I like the perspective, makes things seems larger than life.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/01/2007 10:52:30 AM
Good Lord! Apocalyptic. I like the dark tone here and the grain/noise level that lends a film noir feel to this. The low angle creates an extra distortion that also unbalances the viewer - really nice job.

Very cool, I love the sky and angle :)

Looks like the 'Wizard of Oz' just before the tornado hit. The sky is brill. Fantastic. That cactus is huge.

No it is soft on mine too now that I look at it, I think I forgot resharpen before I uploaded it. oops! :)

The shadows are a bit perplexing at first until it sinks in that this is shot at night and the shadows are the result of a street lamp, probably located pretty much directly behind the camera's position. Sky be wicked!

Nice minimal composition. Black and white works well for the textures and tones of the image. You must have an lcd monitor? Image appears a bit soft on focus, but I use a crt so it could be just the way our monitors show an image.

i was looking at this photograph and couldnt quite put my finger on the feeling i was getting from it .... movie set comes close (probably coz of the shadows of the plants) ... very flat ... and that's not a bad thing ..
its an interesting image, and the shadows of the plants and that amazing sky make it just about surreal ..

Wow it looks like a movie set - LOVE the negative space on top! I LOVE Black and White - so am looking forward to watching your 30 days.
