These Colorado storms are really fascinating when seen where the open Prairie meets the Rocky Mountains. This shot taken last week while taking a road trip through the Colorado high country.

You have captured some great cloud formations here, fabulous. I like the colours in the vegetation and the distant views to to wonderful mountains, nice composition.

Interesting weather, making for a good picture even without much in the foreground. Perhaps it's best that way. I love the feathery tendrils of rain, and the slightly blown-out areas where the sun is shining behind them. Most of the interest, for me anyway, is in the central horizontal band of the image.
Two things strike me:
- firstly, the boiling clouds don't look very real - the small dynamic range and palate of charcoal tones make it seem fake - even if that's exactly as it looked. I might be tempted to increase the contrast a little in the top half of the picture.
- secondly, the 3x5ish ratio allows lots of the clouds to be seen, but it might be more dramatic to lose some of the top and the bottom of the image (more of the bottom perhaps) to give more of a panoramic feel.

Your composition is great! You have captured some really interesting weather here. The lighting and colors are fine with nice sharpness and DOF.

The pending storm and streaked clouds take the show in this image. Very nice perspective on an expansive rural scene with nice colors and excellent image clarity. Great work and thanks for sharing. Gerald
