Clouds look very ominous , the tree on the left looks like it's on fire with cloud of smoke pouring out of top of it. Great capture. Voted.

Good, powerful shot, even if the horizon looks a bit out-of-level to my eye. Nominated.

Fantastic capture !! The horizon looks a bit off BUT I think it is intentonaly composed to incorporate nicely the perspective from those power lines which leads the viewer deep inside the shot and adds a lot of depth of field. And the placement of a tree, the cloud formations and fantastic processing complement the shot beautifully - well done - a nomination from me !
