Great skies there Rafael. Not much I can add, as they all look good to me. Prefer the vertical shot between the last two, and shot 4 is my pick of the bunch.

Great use of the rule of thirds in the last three, I like the skyline the best.
The bird in the last one had a great view of the scene :-)

Those are nice shots Rafael although a little dark on the foreground. I've started using a Split ND Graduated filter from Cokin on days when the clouds are extra bright. It makes all the difference in my shots.

That looks like a beautiful bridge if seen from a far. Is that a new port that is being developed?

Thanks all.....

Looks darker here than on my home PC. Calibration gets me way too often.

Don no it is not a new port, it is the redevelopment of an old port area. Melbourne is and has always been the busiest port in Australia. With containerisation though they no longer need as much area, so a huge area of docklands is being redeveloped, it is almost doubling the size of the downtown area. The spot where I took the first 4 shots is part of that an area between the river and a small bay that was industral but is being changed. In four I shot back towards the city and the majority of the buildings in teh foreground including the football stadium in the centre are all build on reclaimed dock land.

I have to admit I love cloud photos and # 5 is my favorite here.

Thanks Emmanuel and Ted. We normally do not skys like this so it was a pleasure to get one or two.
