All, just returned from photographing storm systems in the mid-west.
Some new images are under the "Storms" link on my website (ie: 10 images).

Website is:   http://www.mitchdobrowner.com

Honest feedback would be greatly appreciated. It helps a lot.
Note: Should have a few more images to upload over the next few weeks.
Much thanks. - Mitch

Great stuff! I've loved your desert images and it's good to see you branching out into new subject matter. You've really brought the same drama into the Storm images that you had with your desert landscapes.

Mitch,
You'be been producing another stunning serie. Wall Cloud is oppressing, taking my breath away and it is my favourite (a hard choice as the other photos are top notch also).

Mitch,

These are just as stunning as your previous work. They have an other-worldly quality that is absolutely gorgeous. When you get a few more, maybe there will be another LensWork spread, and possibly another portfolio?

I like them very much, they appear powerful and dangerous. What was disturbing me is not so much about the images but about the website. These images (I checked only these) are partly very dark at the corners, and on a black background, so a border or something like that would be good. Also the navigation is a bit awkward, having to click first on the arrow, and then on the new small image. Maybe there is another way I overlooked?

I like #3 "Mothership", #4 "Cornfields" and #9 "Saucer" most. In #2 I wish for a bit more ground, but not sure.

I thought I was the only one with navigation issues as I looked at the series. I too am a sky watcher. These are great! I especially liked Mother Ship and Saucer. This makes me want to take a look at what I can do in B/W with my storm cloud collection. Inspirational!

Powerful images of some amazing natural phenomena.  How much time was invested in capturing these photos?  Was this one storm system, a season's worth, or a career of storm watching?  With the variety of formation it is hard to tell.

As with everyone else, I'm very impressed with the quality of your images.  I did want to ask, most of your images give the impression of being shot from a high vantage point.  Are you using an aircraft,  very good at finding exactly the right overlook, or very good at composing and cropping to give the illusion of having shot from altitude?

However you do it, it does enhance the otherworldly look of your work.  I would also comment that your image of Shiprock is the single best image I've ever seen of this postcard standard.

Mitch's Shiprock views are the only ones that really excite me. I strongly recommend his Lenswork portfolio -- great images really cheap!

Hi All... in reply to the questions:

1. Christian: You're right... the website navigation needs some work. But the easiest way to navigate is to use the left/right arrows on the keyboard to go forward and backwards.

2. Colorwave: The series was shot in a 10 day span. Traveled 5700 miles during over 10 states (South Dakota, Wyoming, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado).

3. EdRosch: Shot with my 2 feet on the ground. Lightning strikes and up to 70mph winds being the biggest obstacles.

4. Eric, luigis, rsl, button, francois, wolfhowl, Sheldon, shutterpu - thank you for taking the time to comment. Its appreciated.

You get more out of a Sony point and shoot than anybody on the planet. Saw your work at Afterimage in Dallas.

Shows it's not all about the camera.

Inspiring,

You've done a terrific job of capturing the energy, beauty and sheer physical size of these storm systems. They're fascinating to look at. I'd love to see the prints. Some of your shots suggest that you were fairly close to the belly of the beast. I'm guessing that you may have had a few "what am I doing out here right now" moments. Anyway, nicely done.

popnfresh - I shoot with Sony R1s. I have 2... one stock and the other IR capable. Choose which to use based on lighting, weather and subject.

Bob, Kirk, dwood - thank you taking the time to comment. It all helps. And honestly never had a "what am I doing out here right now" moment.
I was too in awe of what was happening in front of me.

Absolutely fabulous! I particularly like "Rotating Storm" with a lightning strike in the left part of the image. There are many others I like. You are wonderfully dedicated to your art.
