    Great picture! I think you could increase the contrast to make the clouds stand out a little more from the sky.

    I like that you can see the layers of the clouds with the darker section on the right and the lighter section on the left.

    The crepuscular rays that you captured in this image gives it some great depth.

    I appreciate less post-processing in this photo. It looks very natural, and the natural shading and dispersion of the light against the clouds is beautiful.

    I’m impressed at the shutter speed used. I like how you were able to capture clouds at different altitudes. I like how this image was not edited, as it shows the natural beauty of the sky and the clouds.

    The focus is quite crisp, and I like that these clouds are not as common around here.

    The gradients of blue and the sun rays are really nice to look at! Also it seems like your reading of the skewT diagram accurately reflects what we are seeing in the photo.

    This reminds me of a very calm summer day! I think you did a great job capturing the rays of the sun through the clouds.

    Very nice spotting the darker spots in the clouds and interpretation what that means for the atmospheric conditions during the time you took the picture.

    Very cool image. I like how you can see several different types of clouds in the image, which is reflected in the Skew-T diagram

    I agree with your prediction that these might be alto cumulus clouds. I like the way the sun rays shine around the clouds
