    I like how the photo is essentially framed by shadows with the bright sunset in the middle.

    The color looks great in this! I would recommend upping the vibrance and limiting exposure

    I feel like I’m looking at the gate to Olympus. I love the contrast between the dark and light. The colors visible really make the image appear Godly. Well done.

    I really like the contrast in this photo, I also really like how you were able to catch some of the last sun rays of the day. The photo was beautifully captured, great work!

    A very dramatic photo. The light peering from behind the mountain and selectively illuminating certain spots in the clouds is very cool. I personally like how the contrast was set. One of my favorite parts of the image is the embellishment added by the little illuminated cloud at the top of the frame.

    I really like the way you clouds are naturally framed by the dark mountains below, dark cloud above (nearly symmetric to the mountains) and the trees on the right. I absolutely love the framing, and would not recommend cropping out the trees. The sun is an amazing gold with the sky still a great deep blue above the first layer of clouds. Great job!

    I like the contrast, and the way the sun seems to roll off of the mountain in a wave. The clouds are well captured, and personally I like the tree on the right.

    1. The artistic nature of the image is exceptional- very spiritual with the sunlight shining through the darkness.
    2. The flow is clearly demonstrated.
    3. The photographic technique is really nice.

    I like how dramatic this image is. I think the light over the hill may take away from the focus of the clouds though.

    The sun coming through the gap in the clouds adds great contrast and color. The picture is aesthetically pleasing.

    I really enjoy on how the sun is the centerpiece. I like the mountains foreground, but for some reason I am just not a fan of any trees in these clouds images. I love how the sky opens up in between the two clouds.

    really nice photo. i appreciate the sharp focus on the outline of the mountains and trees. I might say the photo is a little blown out in some portions.

    Wow I like the sun beams! I think the tree is not so good. It seem to pull the eye. I love the colors

    I like this photo! I like the composition with the dark mountain in the foreground and the dark mountains on the top. I almost feels like you’re peeking through a set of dark clouds into a light portion of the sky.

    Nice photo, I like the window of the blue sky shown between the clouds, the sun is in a nice place, I like the little hole where light is shining through in the top cloud. I also like the silhouette of the mountain and the trees framing the bottom. Nice picture.

    I love this photo. The sunset coming through and illuminated the cloud with a golden yellow is stunning. The darkness of the clouds provides a beautiful contrast to the golden yellow. The dark mountains and the trees and branches give it a nice touch.

    Good contrast between the two near and far cloud formations and the background. I think cropping out the bushes in the foreground on the right side may remove some of the distracting elements.

    Awesome photo. Great detail and color. I like the formation of the clouds in the middle. Interesting dark cloud on top, makes the image more symmetrical.

    The contrast on the photo is great, and the way the clouds are illuminated by the sun adds a super interesting effect.

    The foreground silhouette is a nice touch. It helps give depth to the clouds with the sun shining through.

    This photo looks like it was taken out of a cave to me. I like the dark on the top and bottom of the photo to give the perspective of peering out. nice light coming up from behind the mountain to illuminate the underside of the clouds.

    Awesome photo! I really like the contrast range and all the dark and light colors that peak through over the mountains.

    Awesome golden color in the center! It gives the photo a ton of energy, which i really like. The silhouette of the mountain is great as well, and the focus is very sharp.

    The silhouette around the image is superb, especially from the trees. The contrast from the bright washout to the dark mountains is nice. Clear crisp photo, well done.

    – Great photo!
    – I really like the contrast in dark and lights colors it has a nice bronze color feel to it.
    – For some reason it reminds me of the teletubbies show when the sun would rise up from the mountains in the morning, nonetheless still a very clear and well focused picture.
