Superbe. Et encore une fois je pense que le noir et blanc charge la photo en signification. Le ciel nuageux ajoute une touche dramatique et la silhouette de l'horizon une part d'inconnue. Le dimanche comence bien ;o)

Amazing. The texture of the clouds and the mystical moment are perfectly captured.

There is A nice perspective in atmosphere of this shot,on the ground & in the sky.It's great.

Well lit & composed & a nice frame, too.
ale (1819) 2004-07-04 5:31
This is wonderful Yves!
I love to see so much sky, and what a sky! I think this contrasted B&W is perfect to emphasize this scene, you chose a beautiful light. Bravo!

Very dramatic picture with the B/W the contrast the darkness and the contrast between the Stratocumulus sky and the rolls of straw in the fields.
Very good job and thanks for sharing with us!
eleparc (24063) 2004-07-04 6:27
different from the color prints i knew from you... i like it a lot..eventhough i wonder if cropping a slightly bit of this huge sky would not make it more powerful? and maybe lighten it a tiny bit too.. however, it is a great photo;-)
ma-tibou (4568) 2004-07-04 6:39
C'est magnifique et le noir et blanc , (comme souvent) , renforce encore plus tous les détails.
losteden (1522) 2004-07-04 8:18
Fantastic work. Great composition. I like very much bw work like this.

Very nice and affective B&W , and inlace as well! Great tones Yves
cgrindahl (6113) 2004-07-04 12:15
Wonderful! This is a dramatically different way of presenting the fields and skies of France, without the lovely colors to which we are accustomed. Your treatment emphasizes the texture and graphism of the image. Very fine work Yves.
manny (21833) 2004-07-04 13:08
Excellent shot Yves. The color tones emphasize the texture of the clouds and the ground. this is very good.
nwoehnl (122) 2004-07-04 14:11
Again a photo to be proud of, Yves (well most of your shots are, but this one is a particular standout). The strong contrast and the b&w presentation really get the most effect out of this setting with the hayrolls on the field, topped by this supreme array of clouds in the early evening light. The vertical cropping definitely was called for. Well done, congratulations.

Amasing sky, splendid perspective, great compoced, excellent B/W.
harold (2377) 2004-07-04 16:48
Travail parfait. Le choix du noir et blanc est très juditieux. Bravo Yves.
jrzufferey (7305) 2004-07-04 17:12
Le sommet de la classe, une N&B avec un contraste parfait, un thème et un ciel extraordinaire. Bravo et merci/jr
pridel (233) 2004-07-05 3:56
wow ! fantastique, j'aime beaucoup cette photo, la composition est réussie mais ce que j'aime particulièrement c'est le n&b qui fait bien ressortir les éclats de lumières notamment sur les meules de foin et la ligne d'horizon sombre. Le ciel est splendide. Merci
jrj (34843) 2004-07-05 4:19
Great perspective and the sky in combination with the field and hayballs works just to the best. Good choice the BW. Very good Yves.
merpb (2001) 2004-07-05 8:18
Perfect Yves, No critique, just awe and envy.
Probably my favourite of all.
Burnham (2428) 2004-07-05 8:22
I haven't read the other critiques to this one, but I figure there are some "WOWS", and I'll just add another one - WOW :o) On nights like this one I always wonder why some days the sky is the prettiest thing you've ever seen and for no particular reason.
The compo is jsut the way it has to be, in oredr to get as much of the sky in the shot. I love this.
Georges (11185) 2004-07-05 14:06
trés belle presentation pour cette image au ciel dramatique bien accentuée par les tons de N/B quelle presente.
J'aime bien ici le cadrage vertical c'est une bonne idée.
jhonny_blue (4956) 2004-07-07 4:54
Wonderful B&W picture Yves ! It´s very good composed and very interesting !
Very well done !
GrahamB (939) 2004-07-07 5:12
Fantastic. I love the BIG sky. Great composition with just the small slice of field and hills. A great B+W shot.
sn00zie (2384) 2004-07-24 8:31
amaaazzziinggg composition... and i think doing it in b/w was a splendid idea. the patterns are stunning.... i actually stared at the picture for 5 minutes before i could even think of writing anything
edji (1368) 2004-08-01 15:17
Very nice shot with lots of contrast in the sky. I like it.
Very great framing to show the beautiful clouds.
danielswalsh (13599) 2004-08-17 0:38
Amazing effect Yves!
I wish I had something more to contribute- other then wow!
Can you tell me how you achieved such an effect?
Oldtree (2457) 2004-09-04 12:02
Wow. That one is different from the usual version of this theme. Very good composition and the perspective with the clouds is amazing.
poulinp (4530) 2004-11-12 9:45
Je commence à découvrir ta collection de photos, et je vois que tu es un maître dans l'art de jouer avec la luminosité. Très bien réussie cette photo.
colinbrenchley (6431) 2004-11-12 17:10
Great cloud photo with the sun just picking out the separate cells of the stratocumulus. The roles of straw and the field occupying the bottom of the photo to give scale and a good baseline. The right subject for B&W.
coco (30439) 2009-02-16 7:13
What great and magic place and moment you did shot!!
The wide (but vertical) composition, the contrast and the black and white look great.
