    I took this picture with a Nikon D70. I don't have Photoshop, so I wasn't able to do too much to it. I would like it if the clouds were a little more defined. [​IMG]

    a good cloud shot can be very difficult, look for opportunities when they are back-lit (sun, moon, e/t/c) that typically brings out the most natural contrast which is key for something that is just naturally bland

    Hmm, I like that it is b&w. I would've probably moved the frame down so you can see more land, and remove that extra space on top of the photo.

    No, it is not just you at all. Clouds are only a PART of a shot and they are often too flat and provide no perspective. Foreground is necessary and most scenic shots are better in colour as well, since black and white is seldom handled well by many photographers.
