I like the layers contrast here Mike!

Mmm can not make up my mind on this one Mike ~ perhaps if the clouds had a bit more contrast to them it would help

Agree on the shadow but I see so clearly what you were after in this one : ace demo of the 'Rule of Thirds', too !

Perhaps a little crisper though the softness and the proportion of the shapes gives it the feel of an abstract by Rothko. Nice

Thanks Leslie, AG and grouser. It's good to hear those constructive comments (I'm glad you agree with me). Ordinarily I would not have posted this image, but it's good to look back at older work to see ones mistakes ;)

I like the thirds a lot, but agree with you on the shadow......I also enjoy looking back on older work and thinking about what I would do differently today.....

I like it. I would have even cropped the sky a bit to make all layers same size.

Cool, interesting concept. The only thing that bothers me (and it's probably the fault of my monitor) is the brightness of the highlights in the clouds. But the progression of the grays from dark to light (or vice versa, depending on whether your glass is half-empty or -full) is classic.

I like this shot with its three shapes which produce a nice abstract if there were no detail. It works as a landscape too. Well done.

I like the three bands or layers. Nice B&W.
