    These clouds give me a godly feeling- seeming like the heavens are opening up! the focus is good and exposure is nice. would maybe like a tad bit more contrast in the image.

    I really like the clouds that are captured here. They really dominate the image. I wish the blue of the sky was less muted though.

    There is a lot of action going on with these clouds. I like how you can see those dark clouds rolling over the mountains.

    I really like the dark cloud coming form the mountains. The cloud looks really menacing which is I really like.

    I love the sun glow around the clouds. Really nice. As others mentioned increasing the dynamic range would be a nice touch.

    Nice photo. The clouds have a very cool soft lighting. Some additional contrast could help the clouds be more dramatic.

    Sweet sky formation. Could do without the color on the buildings and mountains. Good colors above though. Great detail

    Nice mix of cloud physics. What do you think causes the smaller saturated clouds to split off from the larger clouds?

    Great image with a strong dividing line in the middle. The roofs of the houses at the bottom of the picture are a bit distracting, you could consider darkening this area of the image or cropping it out.

    I think the mountains add some more texture to the image, the overall cloud formation is interesting and the light coming out of the top is a cool effect.

    This is a great image. The clouds are nicely detailed. The sun adding light behind the cloud is nice.

    It is cool that you can see the different layers of clouds because the higher ones are much lighter. The tree on the right adds a cool effect.

    I really like how the low clouds billow over the length of the Flatirons. The darkness of the clouds is quite dramatic.

    Good colors. I like the contrast between the dark and glowing cloud layers. The image seems a bit grainy towards the bottom, and the roofs at the bottom are a little distracting.

    Cool flow and there are a lot of different types of clouds here. Looks good.

    I like how the clouds over the mountains are low and dark then the clouds above are bright. The roof of the house on the bottom of the image is a little distracting, maybe just crop a bit more off the bottom?

    I like the interesting organge glows right beneath the cloud above the mountains. Overall, great focus and contrast.
