Hope it doesn't look too dark. The print looks fine but I have several people tell me it's too dark on their monitor....

It's not too dark for my eyes (or my monitor); looks just like a storm should look, IMO.  The receding series of ridges are great, I like the relatively sharp transition from dark to light on the water as well as the more gradual increasing brightness in the sky in the distance.  The photograph captures the title very well -- nicely done.

Me too. It needs to be this dark to keep the wonderful stormy mood. Fine shot.

I like this shot. I always loved stormy weather. When I lived in Florida we got some some pretty awesome storms but I was rarely in the position where I was able to capture them. Great shot though!!

The apparent calm of the water before the storm, a very good shot

Well composed and captured. Interesting, it reminds me of a focal plane shutter curtain traveling vertically across the image.

Wonderful light and contrast - not too dark. The "broiling clouds" are fantastic. Is there any chance that you make another exposure with more of the clouds and less of the water, thereby placing the coast slightly below centre?

I like this very much, and no it is not too dark.
The only thing that really bothers me though is the very bright horizontal line defining the shore -water edge, which immediately draws my eye and holds it there.
I took it into CS5 and as it is it is only two pixes wide as posted, I did a 50% brightness and also a contrast decrease  in most of it and it softens the look quite a bit and gives more of a broken line look which would be more consistant with the breaks in the clouds and the suns reflection on the water through them.
The horizon is ever so slightly off -down on the right. ;-)
