    Very cool cloud, great focus and detail. The color balance feels unnatural, perhaps adjust white balance in several layers to preserve a more natural appearance when trying to bring out the colors.

    I enjoy how the sky fades to the darker blue at the top of the image. I wish that the mountains either had more direct light on them or were a silhouette, they are kind of in between with the lighting how it is. I love how the cloud in the center is much closer than the rest of the clouds around it, it’s by itself, shows an interesting air pattern there.

    The details are really acute here. The purple is very interesting, but I think the blue sky is a little distracting and perhaps could have been cropped down a little bit. The cloud shadows are really cool down on the mountains.

    The dark colors really add a dramatic effect to the picture. The trees incorporated in the picture really add to the picture. The blue sky in the background also adds depth to the photograph. I like the story that went along with the picture it gave the image context.

    I like how there is only one cloud in the center of the picture. There is a large range of the clouds colors. I also like how the mountains provide framing, while not distracting from the clouds.

    Very cool picture capturing the color variation in the sky early in the morning. Interesting effect to make the clouds in the to turn purple while the ones in the back stayed white. It creates a depth to the image as well that is very pleasing to look at. Great job!

    Cool clouds and view of the mountains. The violet color caste certainly presents the image in a unique way. I think my favorite part of the image is the texture captured on the three clouds near the center of the frame.

    I like how the mountains give a warm tone. The purples are actually very pleasing.

    I appreciate the post processing and the purple colors added. The high perspective adds an interesting and unique quality to the image.

    1. The artisitic effect of the purple filter is nice.
    2. The flow is demonstrated.
    3. The photographic techinique is good and the mountains as a part of the image, but not highlighted because the subject is the clouds is good.

    NIce clouds with a nice foreground. Not the biggest fan of the purple effect, but I see the effect you were going for. The splash of color on the mountain below looks great.

    The purple is cool. I think the focus is good? Hard to tell it almost looks like the cloud is in motion.

    Art: The color contrast between the background of the mountains and the clouds is interesting.
    Flow: The flow is quickly understandable and easily recognized.
    Photographic technique: The focus of the clouds is great, especially when considering that some of these clouds are very puffy.

    Cool shot! I like the post processing you did on your photo to make the clouds really pop more than the original shot.

    The shadows on the mountains are what makes this image great in my opinion. Good idea making those stand out.

    The clouds in this are incredibly cool. I like the different layers that the clouds create. It was a great choice to leave so much of the sky blue.

    Really cool picture. I love the cool colors and overall blue tones. Only critique would be that the picture looks a bit grainy.

    looks like a nice crisp morning. I like how the closer cloud and further cloud gives a large depth of field. I like the purple to give it some more texture on the clouds.

    I like the tint of purple to the image. Cool formation of the cloud in the foreground with bigger, thicker clouds in the background.

    Interesting shape of the cloud, cool coloring, particularly the contrast of coloring between the cloud and the mountains. I’d also be interested to see the original photo.

    – The purples and blues really stand out in this photo.
    – There is quite a lot of detail.
