amazing photograph. such a great use of contrast. within the rocks themselves and between the rocks and the sky. the fence adds some very necessary depth and guides the eye. wonderful!

Awesome composition, the bulb setting really brings out the movement of the clouds. Very nice.

I really love the wideangled shot! Giving the sky more area makes this shot more in-depth. Awesome work! The only thing I could suggest is to work on the heavy grain by lowering it. Keep it up! :D

Tom referred me here! So show him some love! ;) =thomas-darktrack

There's different opinions about the noise. Some people like it (including me) and if I completely removed it, I would get a pretty blurry fence. I also think there's a lot of jpeg artifacts on this compressed version... I'll do a re-edit soon. ;P

Thank you very much for the words.

I will. :)

I see, but the grain was just a bit too heavy and disturbs the picture a little.

NP. Keep it up! ;)

This is an amazing photo. It was surprising to me that you had favs but no comments on it. The noise doesn't bother me, actually I think it compliments the photo. Nicely done. :+fav: for me.

I believe faving a picture is the best way to show that you like it so I'm not too worried about that. ;)
I agree with you about the noise. It gives a unique feel to these black & white photos.

Thank you very much.
