What a beautiful shot. It is so peaceful and yet energetic at the same time with the fish jumping.

The jumping fish are fun but I think the clouds are just spectacular!

Amazing clouds in this shot and nice silhouette.

This image overwhelms me a bit. Almost as if there is too much going on. Huge and amazing sky (which also has some of the signs of a round spray paint type tool in the upper right) crazy jumping fish of doom. Again don't look native to the shot. I think either the sky or the fish but both is just overwhelming. And if you include the sky make sure you blur or dodge out the circles in the upper right there. I have never seen perfectly round dark spots in the sky.

First off, nice combination of action and cloudscape in tricky lighting.

I don't usually comment on titles, but in this case, where you've (at least as I learned them) transposed these two phrases, and given the nature of the clouds, the correct next phrase would have fit as well.

From Summertime by George Gershwin

Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high

Very cool lighting on the clouds.

Beautiful clouds (I'll guess thanks to advanced editing) and good capture of the fish and fishermen. Isn't the title backwards if it's the words of "Summertime" after the title word?

Incredible sky, and very nice crisp silhouette. Lovely photograph all round. Well done.

Great clouds, fantastic composition, but what in the world is happening in the water there! (Good entry!)

At first all I saw were those clouds. I thought to myself, wow I wish the main focus were the clouds and you used this in a different challenge. But the more I looked at it the moore I liked it. It really does show the heart of the true fisherman trying to get the "catch of the day" waiting till the best time to get it. Those clouds are magnificent!

This is a really cool shot but the burn or dodge tool you used left circles in the sky. Readjust the settings on the tool so that it blends better, such as decreasing the hardness. You might need to calibrate your monitor as well becuase you may not be able to see them.

Wow, what did you do to those fish. Those clouds are intense btw.
