Changed my mind on the last day of the month and decided to submit this shot. I missed the deadline for two challenges this month. I wanted to enter another shot for the Zen Photography challenge. And would have liked to enter this one for the Landscape in Black and White challenge. Ultimately, I'm going with this one. I hope that's the right decision (with my luck, probably not).

This was taken on a photo night with a friend of mine in Kansas City. We stood atop a parking garage to get a view of downtown right before a storm rolled in.

Thanks for the comment Matthew. I'm guessing the border detracted for some. The clouds were amazing that day though.

I really dig this. Can't believe the low score.

Good job with keeping the clouds as the main subject. They came out really pretty. Lots of depth.

Excellent range of tones and good detail. Why are you wasting pixels on that heavy letterbox border? I'd rather look at Kansas City.

Delicious sky and wonderful tonal range and detail in this excellent B&W conversion. 8

For a photo this works as a painting.
I think the borders (I use them too)make this unnecesarilly poster-like.
high number
