The border probably won't go over very well, but I like the processing on this version, and can't seem to duplicate it. So I'm keeping the border.

Great tones on this with dark black and bright white. One of my favs. I might have copped off the top 5% where the sky is black. Alternatively if you had zoomed out a tiny bit more and had more the of the black clouds.

Nicely done. Great range of tones and contrast, representing the entire spectrum. This surprising seems to be a rare treat. Lovely clouds. Sharp, clean. Excellent photo.

I'm not voting so don't lose any sleep over my critique of the border: I don't like it. First off, it steals too much space from this very nice photo. Secondly, the thick white line is, for lack of better words, not very classy, if that makes sense. A 1-px-wide white line would have nicely set it off, subtly. The thick white line is just too much. I may have even preferred just a black frame. But to be honest, since we only have 300 pixels to work with, no frame is even better. Anyway, take it as one man's opinion, which is as valuable as the next's.

While I like the photograph better for them, the punched up dramatic clouds steal the eye away from the skyline. So ironically, better photo, worse entry.

I like this mood that black and white provides to this image.
