Why don't I ever seem to find this sort of light where I live? :( Super image, well done!

Wow. Awesome processing for basic! Not sure how you worked those clouds but it turned out great!

Cool composition, but I don't like the sky at all. It sort of looks like a comic book.

The grunge look on this image does it all to get my attention.

The cropping off the bottom of the dish actually works giving more mystery to your image.

Interesting lighting, and any dodging and burning you did.

Nice job.

I would have liked to seen it from greater distance / wider angle. Open up the frame a big and not crop the dishes. Keep the dishes in the bottom right 3rd maybe. Not sure if that was possible. To me the dishes are not as interesting as the contrast between the trees and sky.

I have no idea, how did you achieve such effect in Basic, but it is simply great. The composition is very good. Light and sky are dramatic, they add to the mood. I love the wood in the background. Just the "Astra" sign is distracting.

awesome sky, wow, how'd you do that, best I've seen so far

Looks very over worked...and the haloing around the satellite dish draws a lot of attention

Good way of making the pic relate to the film. Don't care for the clouds though. I'd possibly not have cropped as tight.
