    The sun wasn't being cooperative, but the clouds were!

    Constructive C&C appreciated!

    I like it. I think there's a little bit too much of the water on the bottom half of it, though.

    Water takes up the bottom third. It's a compositional rule... Not getting defensive, just telling you why I did it, since I did this on purpose.

    Rule of thirds

    I know the Rule of Thirds.

    Usually for me, if something looks off I don't go by a rule, I go by what looks good. Just me I guess?

    Taking a close look at the clouds reveals an illusion...sort of like they are moving, because there is a big fire behind them and the fire is trying to burn it's way through the clouds. I really like the colors.

    Thanks guys!

    I was wondering if I was going to get flamed for how small the boat is, but I like how it is kind of telling the viewer how insignificant we are as people!

    Really love the clouds! But find the boat a bit distracting. I do love the composition of the clouds being on the right.
    Your picture creates the illusion that the horizon is not level, because of the lighter spot underneath the clouds on the left... I had to get a ruler and scientifically determined that your horizon IS level!;)

    ohhh...looks like a huge storm))) such a tiny boat)
    well, what I would do - is to caprture even more sky...
    but best of all would be to shot it from a helicopter))) from above. that would look breathe taking)
