Simple tropical thundercloud over the Mekong Delta, taken in late afternoon from a car ferry on the road from Saigon to Can Tho. This is just before Can Tho, crossing the Hau Gieng branch of the Mekong Delta, across which there is no bridge yet. I did not erase the piece of garbage floating in the river to balance the surreal cloud with a bit of reality.

Hi Tan. Indeed that cloud does look out of this world. I can only imagine if the water was mirror smooth and we had more reflection. But this is still great! Good work Tan.

Good composition specially the clouds are looking very nice. The part of the river side is shining due to sunlight. Great shining over water.

Amazing scene Tan! The angle on this cloud is just right, giving a symmetrical looking cloud, and a vividly deep blue sky. I would have been tempted to crop out about half of the river at the bottom, but I appreciate the effort to bring some reality into the shot. Great work, as usual.

Tan I love the shape and detail in the clouds. A very nice view in this setting. Good details and balance in the frame. Excellent work!

A magnificent cloud, graphically illustrated against the superb blue sky. I also like the subtle reflections of the cloud, in the Mekong River. Good work!

Nice view over the water towards the land. The big cloud looks very special. Well captured.

Amazing and beautiful "mothership" and a great blue-white contrast.
I could miss some cm of the lower part to enlarge the upperpart.

Hello Tan, this is a fabulously shaped cloud. I also love the graduation of colour agross the sky from light to dark. The huge cloud makes the boats look tiny.

An impressive and surreal cloudscape, Tan. I would have been tempted to crop a little from the left and bottom, but it's still good as it is. Cheers . . . David

Great compositon Tan - in many ways it's quite simple but you did really well to spot the potential here.

Tan, ce nuage est extraordinaire, on dirait un ange dans ce ciel très bleu. Belle composition !

The cloud looks like some UFO.
I enjoy the glittering in the middle of the water body.
The different shades of the green in the shore is quite intersting.
The way you composed this landscape is mind blowing.
We feel the power of nature here.
Great work congrats.
