i would have preferred a stronger silhouette throughout.. (hmm is that the right way to say it..) anyways, the upper right hand corner gets lost in the dark cloud and then i just kinda lose interest.. mb this shot would have worked better from a higher vantage point maybe a few minutes earlier when the storm was just coming in.. and silhouetted in front the leading edgeof a nice tall storm cloud..

Because of the lack of detail the impact as a silhouette is lessened and yes the tight cropping doesn't help.

Perhaps isolating the tree on a field with it as the only object somewhat off to the side would have beena better choice.

I find it looks like it was taken through glass?

Basically a good picture, but really needs a wider crop. A pano with this one lonely tree sitting on the horizon would be a real grabber.

I know this is off the subject, but will you tell me exactly where you live, Brian? I want to steal your cat.

Sorry Barbara;

This is an old photo which I just added as my avatar to honor his passing, at the ripe old age of 21. Very much like losing a child.

This was the clinker in the pack. It was scanned from a 1981 advertisement for Whirlpool. I'm sure it was meant to convey the idea of the freshness of the great outdoors, but it didn't manage this. I'm willing to bet that a perfectly fine photograph was cropped down to this cramped thing by some bad-eyed ad executive. I feel sorry for the photographer whose picture got mangled in the wash, but I'm sure he counted himself lucky that his name was lost down the drain.
