Photo was taken on January 30th, 2018. The skew-t diagram tell us that the atmosphere was stable at the time the photo was taken. The darker cloud seems to be a lenticular alto cumulus cloud since it has a smooth outline and stable atmospheric conditions. This lighter clouds with ripples are much higher than the altocumulus cloud and are cirrostratus undulatus clouds.

The puffiness of the clouds was beautifully captured. The framing of the image adds to the overall modern aesthetic of the image. Really nice!
I love the foreground and the cloud formation
Great cloud. I love the color on the underside of of it. I would maybe try and crop out some of the foreground.
Interesting image, you capture the clouds very well, but there are a lot of details in the foreground that may be distracting, especially the cars. I do think the lights on the building add to the image, maybe you could try to crop the cars out of the image?
I love the colors in this image and the soft edges of the cloud. Great focus. Love the sense of place evoked by the restaurant, and the strong human presence that it puts in place. Maybe try cropping the cars out? I don’t know, that could look weird. Nice work, so beautiful.
I like how smooth the cloud is, the orange coloring on the underneath of the main darker cloud gives the cloud some added definition and depth. Overall I like the image, the building is a little distracting, but I do like the contrast it gives.
Crazy cloud formation. I like the dark color with a little bit of a sunset reflecting on it with the clear white clouds above. The lights from snarfs do add some effect.
I like the subtle pink colors in the background of the photo. I would suggest playing around with some cropping on the bottom while keeping the snarfs building in the foreground.
It’s interesting to see the contrast between the lenticular clouds and the high clouds above.
The clouds in this picture have really interesting shapes and colors. Did you leave the foreground in the picture on purpose? Leaving the restaurant in the picture looks nice but maybe cropping out the cars to make the image less distracting? Just a thought.
It is really nice the various colors throughout the sky. Also the various types of clouds was cool to see, and added an additional element to the photo.
i really like seeing the mountain waves in the top left of the picture. I like the contrast you have in the clouds and sky as well.
Cool cloud formation. The light creates really cool colors in the clouds. The foreground is pretty distracting.
I like the colors and the sky and how the clouds are so puffy. Maybe crop out the entire foreground, it is a little distracting.
Wow this is a super cool cloud formation, I love how the clouds reflect the colors of the sunset.
I really like the blobbiness of the lenticular clouds that you captured. Interesting choice of including your surroundings in the foreground.
I like the subtle pink hues underneath the cloud. Not crazy about the foreground, however, great focus and contrasts.
Great clouds and nice color. I would crop out all cars and stuff, but other than that great image.
Cool image and the foreground looks pretty nice
I like the clouds and the colors of the sky. The foreground is pretty distracting, I’m wondering if you can at least crop the bright windows of the store.
The sky is absolutely beautiful, but the parking lot and lights from the building take a lot away from the sky.
This is a really nice image. I like the contrast between the light and dark clouds.
Really nice. This shows the atmosphere’s stability really nicely. I can just see the air sinking!
