Fascinating. What the heck are they looking at? The unanswered question creates a lot of interest.

And the other was from me. Like I said, I just really like it, and can't tell you why. :)

I love the fact that everyone is waiting for something to appear, especially me :)

I love that there's not a darn thing to see! GREAT shot. Excellently framed by the bodies and I love the jacket on the guy on the left, the hat on the guy on the right, and the one guy in black standing in the middle.

I think this is a wonderful image, so deadpan and understated. I can't see a thing I'd change, including the slight cutting off of the hats left and right, which I think is priceless. I'm assuming you're not doing very well, score-wise, and that's a crying shame. This image is just completely fascinating, metaphorical as all get out. Is it an air show or are they waiting for the shuttle to land? Both occurred to me as "explanations", but of course i do not need one...

Something about this appeals to me -- not sure what, but I like it.

I like the composition with the woman and the man in the foreground, but I'm not sure what the 'sighting' is. I don't see anything in the clouds!

I'm not allowed to vote this challenge, as I'm only a registered member. Your image caught my eye as I was looking through the thumbnails. What a pleasant surprise when I opened the image. The leading lines send my eyes directly to the center of the image. I love how I'm left to my imagination to determine what everyone is trying to look at. Wonderful sighting on your part. Adding to my favorites.

Great simple capture...control is kept over the people.
