Elemental Force by TobiasRichter Elemental Force by TobiasRichter
A big and dangerous-looking thunderstorm cell is approaching the Saxon Switzerland on a summer day. It has already started to rain at the horizon, while the Falkenstein Mountain in the foreground of the photo still bathes in warm setting sunlight.

Overall I really enjoy this image. The amount of details that you can see, especially in the darker clouds, give someone a lot to look at and to keep them involved within the image.

The contrast between the light and dark also works very well, for the most part. I do find my eyes are constantly drawn to that lower third on the left side. That huge bright area just attracts my eyes all the time. There needs to be something else to help balance that brightness out as I don't know if burning it would have helped at all or just made it a darker blob instead.

Nicely done!

This is a great shot. The shapes of the fog and thunderclouds add dynamics and a sense of Mother Nature in both realms of land and sky. The different colors, lights, and the centering of the horizon captures Earth and Heaven nicely. Very interesting to look at.
