    I think that number 3 works the best, You've got some great clouds there. Reminds me of a explosion with loads of dust, the clouds look like they're growing really quickly! My personal opinion is that that type of cloud works better in black and white than the whispy type at the top of number 4. The more clustered clouds at the bottom look the best I think.

    Nice shots though, maybe a little more contrast?

    Thanks. Actually I was also quite fond of the colour originals of these conversions but thought these cloud formations could be good photos with which to try my hand at conversions. You can play endlessly with the different colour filter levels. I never know which one is good and which one is not.

    I am planning to post those into the "Sky"-section over in the Photo Themes. Watch for the space there, will you?
    And thank you for your very nice comment :blushing: ... to hear that from your mouth :blushing: :D

    Very dramatic skies, well done. I concur with the others about the conversion.
