I was out running around in a field and this storm front just had popped up from nowhere and had some great shots. I must have been in the right place at the right time that day.

A very strong visual with that impending feel. Tones are rich and satisfying.

Now I know why this looks so familiar to me. It reminds me of Jerry Bruckheimer's logo that has the tree and the lightining bolt. :)

Great tone, very moody. Nice display of depth. Very good composition too.

Good luck...

Shame there wasn't any lightning. Nice shot.

It could be just me, but the horizon doesnt look straight

A bit too dark for my liking but overall it's an excellent picture. Love the duotone/sepia look and the dark sky. 8

Beautiful depth, the darkness really draws the eye out
06/08/2004 10:52:29 AM
Nice one.

Pretty dramatic but it doesn't display deep dof very well. There is nothing in the foreground that is in focus (as far as I can tell).

Nicely composed and very atmospheric
06/07/2004 02:16:06 PM
I love the mood of this. It's great to see an image in this category that stands on its own with or without the topic it represents. This is one of my favorites in this challenge.

Great sky, and almost a fabulous composition: to my mind it really cries out for something image right to balance the composition - presently, absolutely everything (road, toning of sky, tree) pulls the eye to image left, and although the road in one sense pulls the eye back to the right, there's nothing there to hold interest inside the frame. Perhaps it's only that the lighter area of cloud starts so far into frame that they eye hunts for something out to the right. Whatever - it feels unbalanced to my eye. But a great scene, nonetheless. Real power. 8

A beautiful shot like this makes me want to sell my camera on ebay. :) Congrats on a great images that fits the challenge very well.

Great picture! Icredible composition.
Is the right "darkness" original or post-processed... ?
Would suspect heida on this one...

Beautiful and moody -- a great use of sepia.
