I just wanted to let you know that this is one of the finest pictures I have seen here or anywhere. The shadows on the mountain, the clouds, the colors, the framing, everything is perfect. I'm jealous and if I ever find out who the two people are who gave it a "1" I'll request their voting priveleges be taken away.

Yours is a dreat picture. You have proven that patience and a good eye can capture a vision in only a few shots. I am glad to see that you were able to take a picture and not make one in the post processing.
Keep up the good work!

I am very honored with your comments and congratulations. The result was specially satisfying for me since that week I spent morning after morning dropping my kids at school, and staying in the parking lot chasing an elusive sun light that I was sure would have to hit that mountain sooner or later, but of course I had to have clouds in my morning sky, and those same clouds were covering my sunlight. Finally, the last day, there was a clearing between the clouds, a 30 seconds chance at it, and I was right there, waiting for it. I was noticed by everyone in school “the strange father who stays every morning with a tripod and a camera, looking at the distance…”

Thanks a lot to all those great photographers who gave this week to me, when so many of them were equally deserving.

In my opinion, yours is the first place photograph this week. 10
09/29/2002 11:13:00 PM
I love how you have captured the clouds - I can literally feel them scudding by over me. The yellow coloring on the mountain is quite striking, but I wish I could see the rest of the mountains, but they are a little too dark.
09/29/2002 09:55:00 PM
Initial=just gorgeous! very nice catch of light!

Lovely shot - I think I'd have cropped in just a little closer to that wonderfully lit mountain. 8 - floyd

Great capture! Light is all and u made great use of it! 8 sgtpepper6344
09/24/2002 07:56:00 PM
Great shot, love the light on the mountain top. Which was was the wind blowing the clouds? I think it would have been a touch cooler, if the right side of the mountain top was in the sunlight, too. Very dramatic clouds! 10 Swash
09/24/2002 05:59:00 PM
Wow... I like this one quite a bit! Good dramatic sky, and I like the lit mountain on the left. My only nit would be to maybe include more of the lit mountain, and a little less of the sky and the silhouetted mountain on the left. --8-- sohr
09/24/2002 03:21:00 PM
I love the sky and the colors ths is absolutely beautiful! 10 smshats
09/24/2002 02:00:00 PM
Excellent photograph. It is a nice moment of light that you captured. Also, the wide angle and the big sky gives a sense of magnitude. Congratulations. I hope you win the challenge.
09/24/2002 09:24:00 AM
Too dark in the bottom.
09/24/2002 05:53:00 AM
Nice shot, the lighting and the clouds make a very dramatic presentation. "Moderate to high" visual impact for me. lhall-8
09/24/2002 05:00:00 AM
wow! This could be on a calendar! Love everything about it!
09/24/2002 04:05:00 AM
A wonderful view. I think I would have included more of the land and maybe not so much of the sky above the first band of dark cloud. You've taken a nice photo though.
09/24/2002 03:15:00 AM
wow. really dramatic scenery. great lighting. wish I had a view like that. 9
09/24/2002 01:34:00 AM
