This set of stratocumulus, cumulus , and altocumulus clouds was photographed at sunset during a backpacking trip in Indian Peaks wilderness with a Nikon D5500. The atmosphere was highly unstable.

    I think you made the image a little too grainy in post-processing! Cool clouds though!

    I like the narrowing cloud into the distance and the colors captured. I wish the image was sharper.

    Very cool how you captured so many different types of clouds – great work!

    The clouds remind me of an alien spaceship kind of diving towards the ground. I like the gold illumination on the clouds.

    I like how the image is composed. It looks like the cloud is growing.

    I like how the sky is light blue at low elevation and gets darker as elevation increases.

    I dig the colors in both the edited and original images. Certainly looks like an unstable type atmosphere.

    The editing really enhances the cloud and its colors. It’s also a cool shape that reminds me of cotton candy.

    Nice image! I like your framing of the cloud, it really helps give depth to the image.

    I like how you can see the flow of the cloud as the wind is blowing. I also really like the colors of the original post a little more

    The form and the colors in this image are really really cool. It looks like something I want to take a bite out of. It does look a little grainy, which could have come from weird stuff uploading the image, or from editing the image very heavily, or just from a high ISO initially. What ISO was the picture taken at?

    I like that you were able to capture a majority of the height of the cloud, and the three different types of clouds all mixed together.

  • I really like the contrast you have with the large to small size of the cloud, it creates a really nice depth of field.

    The way the photo is taken gives the formation a very interesting depth perspective. Beautiful image.

    I really like the dark underbelly of the cloud, it gives a beautiful contrast to the bright gold on top of the cloud.

    I like how you were able to to capture the large size of the cloud.

    The cloud in the foreground looks like a spine of an animal. What editing did you do to the image?

    I love the nonrealistic approach. Also great job caputuring the flow and lifetime of the cloud.

    I love the shape of the cloud you were able to capture! It reminds me of a tornado.

    Very cool image, I really like the color and lighting that you managed to capture. It looks a lot like a tornado moving at an angle to me.

    I love the cloud you chose to take a picture of. With the tree in the foreground to give the picture some scale the cloud look massive.

    I appreciate the brightness increase to give the cloud more of a contrast with the dark mountains.

    I think this picture has a lot of depth with the way you changed the colors.

    The angle of the picture and clouds look like a plume of smoke. It’s very dark which indicates there could’ve been some precipitation under it, though I do not see any
