Dramatic; but the sky looks awfully blue.

Same feeling… The sky is ink blue. I would adjust the WB to a warmer tone (and maybe a bit less magenta). It would also help the green hues in the trees.

^Good observation. It is along the lines of his Big Sur and Barr Lake State Park images where the colors are a little saturated.

I like this kind of work. It’s a departure from the typical and the darker color adds moodiness to the image. The square composition works well. My imagination has a great time wanting to see a number of things in the clouds, most notably a hint of a face in the blue cloud on the left.

It’s good to subtly push the colors in images. It adds artistry to the composition.

Would just like to comment that I have a number of images with similar blue tonalities.  The ones that sell well also have some small areas of bright lights and warm colors that add contrast and relief from the blueness.  The ones are mostly just blue are much less popular.

This particular image is relentlessly monotonic and a little heavy because of it.  The blueness pervades everything, and although that is a valid interpretation, its readily appreciative audience will be limited.  Dark blue can press pretty hard on the human psyche.

I would be tempted to partially neutralize the blue in the clouds, bring up the medium dark areas a few tonal notches and make the relatively warm colors in the rocks more prominent, and unveil the green color in the trees a little bit.  Basically, broaden the palette a bit using subtle color variations to sort the scene out as sky, rock, trees.  A b&w interpretation might be interesting, too.  Please feel free to ignore me.

Thanks very much guys!
I'd be honest to tell you I really enjoy posting the pictures here. Your comments are well accepted whether I agree or not.
I think these kinds of comments making me a better photographer.
