Nominated! That is a very dramatic looking backdrop of clouds! The high contrast monochrome adds to the power in the sky. Nice!

Fantastic capture with the oblique lines and the resulting contrast zones. The photo breaks down into distinct quadrants with separate detail and tonality in each. Ansel would have liked this.

The angle, light and that fabulous sky work so well together. Nominated.

It's all about contrast and this has it. The liveliness of the clouds and how they jump from the dark background along with the mountain peaks adds dynamism to the picture. Then there is the repeating patterns of the shadows and the paths creating an "x" at the lower right and if you let the shadow lead you, that same pattern arrives at the junction of both mountain peaks in the middle.

Killer picture.

Nominated. I love the mountains, I love clouds, and I love monochrome. Well composed and processed landscape/cloudscape which makes me feel as if I'm right on scene.
