    Cool – I like the 90 degree angle of missing clouds. It looked like someone cut a piece of the clouds out like cake

    The editing really brings out the fine details, especially in the stratified layers at the bottom. I like how you’ve captured the sunset colors in the lower clouds. It reminds me of a dragon with its mouth open and the two “horns” at the top look like smoke coming out if it’s nostrils.

    The gold in the corner of the image is really nice to look at. The editing looks great! Also its super strange that you took a photo at the exact same time as Meg

    I like the flat irons in the original image, I would consider cropping it less.

    The added contrast and vibrance to your edited photo makes the clouds stand out a lot.

    I love the post-processing. It gives a great contrast between the light reflecting off of the clouds and the sunset in the back.

    Great image! I like the hints of the sunset you have reflecting off your clouds.

    I really like the the wispy clouds that you have coming in from the left of the image, I think it helps the image flow together.

    I think it was a good idea to crop out the street lights, it allows the focus to fall on the clouds and removes distractions.

    What do you think about the current climate? How does it affect this cloud?

    Nice job capturing the same (maybe?) plane as Meg did, I also think that the editing you did helps improve the visibility of the clouds in your image.

    Good image, and good editing. I like the inclusion of the plane again on the same cloud as Meg’s picture, funny coincidence.

    I like how you added coloring and contrast to the image. I think it helps you really see the cloud even better.
