Beautifully balanced image Alan , the kneeling figure just makes it for me (dunno why she's just right) and that stack of clouds is sublime !!!. Bet the exposure was pretty tricky too and you have carried it off.Also the smooth processing is lovely.SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

High contrast, BIG sky, nice white clouds overhead but rain approaching from the south - was the lass praying for rain, I wonder? Fine b&w.

Thanks, all.

Charlotte, Rod, for the much appreciated UAs.

Bill- the whole scene looked slightly strange to me.

Great use of the `Darks'...think it could also work without the very top cloud Smile

I take your point, but one reason I personally prefer it as it is, is because I'm not crazy about the shape of the 2nd cloud down!!Blush ...so that top cloud kind of takes some of the heat off it, makes it slightly less noticeable. I hope....!!! BlushGrinGrin

Thanks for that Smile

A real gem Alan, the clouds are terrific and full of mood... I too like the girl kneeling in the picture she adds so much to the image and like Rod I couldn't tell you why... Have another UA that makes it three! Oh v2 of my image is now loaded properly

One could argue whether or not this is a great composition, however I feel that one would being going delirious if one did not think so.

Can't help relating this to the Nevil Shute book of the same name. The starkness of your conversion gives a desolate barrenness to the land and despondency of the girl on her knees. This is not a happy image and has so much drama in it. Fine work, Alan.

Dave

(for those that have not read it, the book is post apocalyptic without a happy ending)

Dave you are 100% spot on. Smile Enjoy your prize, mate. Your comments very much appreciated.

Didn't they make a film of that, years ago, black & white?
