Gorgeous shot. I love clouds like that. But I'm a little curious about the ground. This one would be a prime candidate for HDR.







Then it would look like a computer game instead of nature



Not a big fan of HDR.

Great toread my tasteful friends exchangingideas : )

Well,one might as well shoot inRAW and then brighten up the shadowsbefore converting theminto JPEG:rollerhaps.Ah, when it comes to stitching, things usuallybecome somewhat more complicated,because different exposure settingscould easilymess up the stitching process...

Are you referring to the location of Mordor on Tolkien's Middle Earth (which corresponds to SW Asia on a map of Europe) or something else?

This is very surreal- to me it seems as if it is this symbolic painting foreshadowing of the possibilities of joy, gloom, passion, and overarching mystery of the day to come. The joy-being represented by the light, the gloom by the smaller dark clouds interspersed among the light, the passion by the clouds which seem to be on fire, and the mystery is represented by the vast dark cloud. The variation of the clouds represents the individual choice and will power that we can exercise in the upcoming day, but the overwhelming commonality is the unknown in the day that lies ahead- hence the clouds representing "mystery" are by far the largest. I was automatically drawn to the fiery clouds, which I labeled as passion, and I would imagine, just judging from the comments, that many of the others were also drawn to this fiery, turbulent, passionate aspect of the picture. In this way, the photograph conveys a deep meaning about the nature of human beings: While our days, and in larger sense, our lives, are shrouded in this overall darkness of the unknown, we are instinctually drawn to that which is fiery, passionate, unique. I would like to differentiate to the nature of the four motifs I saw in this picture- joy, gloom, passion, and mystery. To a certain extent, all joy, gloom, and mystery are beyond our control and does not fall completely within the realm of free choice. However, passion is unique in that we always have the ability to control or determine the passion, energy and attitude we bring to our lives everyday. Is this what it means to be human, then, to instinctually desire to live the day with passion, regardless of everything else which we either do not know or is beyond our control?



Sorry Bahadir, if that doesn't make sense- but this photograph is very inspiring to me, I think it might be my favorite.
