This is a shot of Higger Tor in the Peak District.A Cokin grey grad was used.
I was trying out my new Canon 17-40 lens one afternoon & just happened upon this fabulous cloud formation.If I'd have gone out looking for this I'd have probably never found it!
Hope you like it?

I'm still new at this myself, so can't say much more than love the composition and the colours!

It is difficult for me to give any constructive critique, as I saw it and wanted to say I like it very much

The composition is good, as is the lighting, but it's the cloud formation that does it for me, it looks great. And I agree with you, if you went looking for those clouds, you'd never find them LOL

Cheers, Sean

Hi, Barry. There's a lot to like in this (one helluva cloud), but may I make some compositional comments:
Firstly it feels a bit 'clipped' with the rocks at the bottom, it also may be better from a lower viewpoint (I have to say this has a 'head height' feel to it)
Secondly I can't help wanting to see a bit more of the blue sky, and a bit of Burbage Edge underneath perhaps. A pan to the right would also have given the foreground rocks a nice diagonal into the bottom corner of the frame.
But on the whole I like the tones and the overall drama and the exposure seems pretty good too.

I seem to get the best results by going out on 'horrible' windy days with plenty of cloud - eventually something seems to blow along!

Think it's a really nice image. The only thing I can think of is altering your viewpoint slightly, perhaps making the foreground rocks bigger. Possibly warm the heather up a little by adjusting colours. All in all though a very good shot.
Well done.
Richard
