    That looks interesting. Are those clouds cut&paste in a BG layer?

    I like the image - allot - but there's something about the skyline that looks unnatural. It doesn't appear to be a HDRI but I guess it could be. Anyway, very cool looking!

    Very nice. I love the sky in this shot.

    I'm patiently waiting for the monsoon season to start here. I'm ready for drama in the skies again! :mrgreen:

    Nope- It's just what it is and what it was.

    Thanks. We've been getting those flat, opaque, type clouds that end up kind of bla around here. Well, unless they're straight up- too close to the mountains.

    This is about as close as I get to monsoons without leaving the state- its on the CRIT (Colorado River Indian Tribes) reservation across from Havasu, AZ. (last year, May/June).

    processing is obvious on the clouds, not bad though, the perspective is right.

    not sure if i can find something where my eye is drawn to. it just wanders around on this one.

    Thanks.

    The perspective is natural. I suppose I went a bit deep on the clouds level, but lightened it up a bit.

    There really is nothing, no lead in colors, light or otherwise. But check it out, the hill is staring back at you now!

    It looks a bit better now that i am at home on my calibrated screen. :DThe foreground has more detail and becomes more interesting.

    I think lightening the sky helped bring out the foreground, and it was such a pretty day with the calico-colored hills and shadows from the sky, ... Thanks for your comments.

    It looks like a giant hippo, looking over the hills at us...I even thought that before seeing the 2nd version.

    That's it!- A hippo. I seen the eyes, but brought them out a bit in the edit. It looked familiar, so that's why! I was thinking a really sad bulldog, but that's a little closer.
