    The image is very clean, I like how everything is shades of blue and white. The composition is well done, I like it a lot.

    This image feels like it’s moving. The lighting is really subtle – you can’t see specific rays anywhere but it’s still really well lit. Nice work.

    Very nice close up image. This looks like a quintessential cloud picture you’d find on google images

    Great idea to choose to shoot your shot up in the sky flying. It turned out really nice with an up close view. Nice focus.

    Good image. The clouds are in focus, and the contrast between the blue and the white is well balanced.

    Very simple image but well executed. Classic white clouds on a blue sky

    I like the fluffiness of the clouds that you have. The contrast is excellent and your focus looks great as well.

    Love how focused this image is, and knowing the height the image was is really cool as well. It’s a lot more unique than just taking the same image far away on the ground!

    It’s awesome that you flew to take this image. You can really see the textures and the shapes of the clouds here. Awesome job framing the image and your decision to take a frame with just the right amount of sky to emphasize the cloud forms.

    Nice capture. What challenges were associated with taking a photograph out of an airplane?

    I like the clouds and the colors too. This might be a cool image in black and white as well. I think the story of how you got this image is really neat too.

    I like how you got super close to the clouds, that’s a nice different perspective than most of the other photos. Good detail and color in the image.
