    Very cool image! I like the exposure and color, but you also increase the vibrance to make the blue pop a little more

    The technique used to capture this image was spot on! I would suggest trying to remove some of the distracting elements in the bottom of the photo. Great work!

    Great colors, like how the sky is very blue and the ground is dark. It makes the ground less distracting. I like how you can see different cloud formations.

    Very impressive image! I think the blue curve was enhanced a little too much, but I still like it. The deep blues in the sky and the clouds, mixed with the style of the building across the street make this area look foreign, like Central European or something. I really like the buildings in the image, but I personally would have tried to make it so I could cleanly crop out the railing at the bottom of the image. Overall, this is a great new take on a sunset behind the mountains.

    – The blue in this photo is really strong, it makes me feel like I am underwater *blub blub*
    – The image is well detailed and focused fairly well.
    – I would suggest cropping out some towards the bottom, it really takes up a lot of the image.

    An interesting time in the day to take a cloud photo. The sun coming from behind the mountain provides nice lighting. I think the image could be improved if the photo had been taken a little higher so that the railing could be edited out and if the blue color caste were removed.

    Clouds are well represented, I’m not that big of a fan of how dominant the blue is in the picture, but it is still a very cool picture.

    I see the overall blue tone of the sky, if this was intentional, very interesting alternate look at reality.
    If not, maybe adjust your curves or saturation to get a more realistic look.

    The focus in your image is crisp and the deep blues make the image very appealing. I think that you could play with the contrast a little more so that the other colors are more balanced. You may also consider cropping the foreground to remove some of the distracting elements.

    The use of the blue clouds mixing with the blue skies is very interesting. Possibly filter out some of the blue to bring out more contrast between the sky and the clouds.

    1. The image is very pleasing and dramatic.
    2. The flow is clearly demonstrated.
    3. The photographic technique is great with good depth of field.

    I really like how the blue pops out in this image. Overall great photo with the cold front moving in from behind the mountains, to me you have just a tad bit too much distracting foreground.

    Cool picture, I love how blue the sky is and the blue clouds look cool. The sun behind the mountains provides really pretty rays of lights coming out. The mountains are a nice foreground. Would have been awesome if there were more clouds in the sky.

    This photo is nice, the rays of the sun are nice, the clouds are well represented, however the clouds in the lower right are a little difficult to see. The noise looks very well controlled, the upper half of the photo looks really nicely representative of the clouds.

    The extreme blue gives this a surreal dream like feel, its pretty interesting. A little bit of noise from the ISO showing in the buildings, but I think you probably could have cropped those out anyways. If the photo didn’t show the building i think it would be even better.

    The sky looks pretty blue! With the sunset the cloud become whiter. Beautiful photo of CU campus.

    The bright color is great! The only thing is that it appears that there is a blue tone to the whole picture, I think it would have been better to do that with a focal point on the sky.

    I like the different types of clouds represented in the photo. Very blue and the light source behind the mountains is neat too.

    Nice blue tint. A lot of texture and detail in the clouds. Great picture of multiple types of clouds.

    Well done deep image with strikingly deep blues. To help the focus of the image be more on the clouds you might want to consider cropping out the buildings in the bottom of the image. The brightness of the sun behind the foothills adds nicely to this image.

    Art: I really like the vibrant color of the sky and clouds.
    Flow: The flow is quickly understandable and easily recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus of the Clouds is great, especially with the capturing of the soft edges of the clouds.

    Wow! The contrast is amazing. I like how to the contrast between the sky and the blue. The clouds also curve upwards which gives it an amazing aesthetic effect.

    Love the blue in the clouds. The contrast between the black bottom and the blue is gorgeous. maybe next time don’t have the bars on the bottom in next edit. Wonderful work!

    The blue looks very cool! I would be curious how it would look if you cropped out the handrail at the bottom of the photo.

    I really like the shade of blue that is in this photo. It is very cool how the clouds on the right side of the photo fade into the blue. It almost looks as it the upper right corner is bending up in the photo.

    Interesting image! I like the sun right behind the hill. The images seem’s very blue I’m not sure why. It is a bit blurry

    The colors are really nice. I like the different cloud formations present in the sky. Maybe the buildings could have been cropped out at the bottom to keep the focus on the clouds.
