    I took this pic last month. It is called Bennett Mountain, located in Idaho. What do you think?

    I think clouds when i look at this shot. Its has good composition but the clouds overpower the shot.

    For some reason I'm not feeling the mountains in this shot. The foreground and shadows from the clouds are too prominent...I'm not even looking at the mountains in the background. That small white thing in the lower right keeps pulling my eyes to it.

    What were the shot settings for this image? What aperture were you using?

    I'd have to agree, the mountains look fantastic IMO, but the clouds draw too much attention from them.

    I think its an interesting picture. like everyone else, I think the clouds can be distracting but my eyes are just as equally pulled to the mountains closest to the foreground. I like how the clouds create random shadows on the rolling hills. Also, the mountains in back appear to morph into alps from the cloud shadows which is kind of cool.
