This is an interesting shot to comment on. Its weakness is that all of the detail is distant. However, by effectively making this a cloudscape - emphasising the texture, with a minor portion of the image having interesting colour - I think you've made this a good shot.

I like this. The clouds are great.

Lovely heavy sky bearing down on the border hills, really atmospheric.

Like it, but cant say why! Rule of thirds tweaked? not sure, but it works for me

Great dramatic sky makes it work.

It's got a lovely "big" feel to it, and there's a nice patchwork of soft light. Against that it is very noisey (I assume high ISO as handheld???) and if anything it lacks something of a focal point. Overall though there is something appealing about it and I do like it Smile

Interesting that despite the amount of cloud there are so many light patches on the ground. Looking at the sky, though, there are distinct gaps in the cloud.
This is really a cloudscape, though something closer-to would help provide some sense of scale. But it is still a satisfying image, reminding me too that I must get out more!

the sky makes it
- a place I find difficult to capture as its so difficult to get any interesting focal point in the foreground to give any sense of depth

I've stumbled on this very late - it's a stunning cloudscape and you've got the right balance IMO between land and sky. It's a little bit flat looking, maybe a tiny boost in contrast would lift it, but hey, lovely stuff
