We'd had another one of those days when theclouds justkept rolling in all afternoon. The top side of this was a little bit bright and I liked the boiling part on the backside so I darkened a little more and changed to b&w. Posting original in ws.

A strong vertical development in the cloud formation with an interesting form and texture best shown in monochrome as you have done here. Very dramatic image and nicely done PP work.

Hi Fiona,
Clouds are always interesting subjects to "play" with.Excellent choice of black & white, reminds me of the " dark room " days, great take with good tones and textures.

Nice shot Fiona. The clouds are wonderful! Looks like they are rising off the ground. Wonderful lighting and a great presentation in b&w. Well done. TFS, Lori

Nice Post Processing Fiona, you have turned a 'snapshot' into an interesting photograph.
Full marks for converting to B&W, it adds drama.
I photograph lots of different skies, when you get more skilled you can rescue some ordinary pix and turn them into something great.
Always be conscious of the lighting and direction.

Hi Fiona...nice tonal range and drama...well done.


Hi Fiona,
Artistic change to black & white of this impressive cloud build up. Great details and intersting shapes and tones.
