[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Some days are good for photographing the sky…

The day started with a clear blue sky, but soon some heavy cloud formations started drifting in from the North Atlantic!

A couple of hours later the bright sunny spring day had changed to a dull cloudy day, and later in the evening the rain poured down…

Hi Pablo,
Awesome looking cloud formations. Lovely blue colour of the sky and the natural tones of the landscape. The silhoetted trees add depth to the shot and the huge skyscape presents enormity and endlessness. Wonderful POV. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Hello Pablo,
You're really a master of clouds!! Without them the landscape here would be a bit dull but together they make a masterpiece! Wonderful colours and a brilliant perspective.
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hola Pablo,
precioso horizonte,
las nubes y el cielo forman un bello conjunto,
admirables detalles y bello pov y dof,

You have captured a lovely cloud formation here Pablo. Very dramatic. The different shades of blue in the sky are beautiful. Nice one.

You say: "... a dull cloudy day."
I disagree. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY. Every day is a beautiful day. Life is worth living. Never a dull moment.

A great captured moment. Highly impressive. Love the contrasts in those colours.
Very well presented.

Best regards,

Hi Pablo

Another beautiful landscape from you and nother terrific use ofthe circular polarizer.
The contrast here between the clouds and that vivid blue sky is superb.
The composition is also great with the green field and the dark silhouettes of the firs there on the horizon.
Splendid colors and details everywhere.

Bravo and TFS

Beautiful colors and composition.

Hi Pablo,
wonderful compositionb, I like the POV a lot, this is where heaven meets earth.
Gorgeous cloud formation with beautiful textures and different shadings of grey. The division of space looks great and keeps the focus on the clouds.
Very well doen.

There's that polarizer at work again. Amazing contrast and colors. Beautiful perspective.

bonjour pablo
belle vue, on croirait que le nuage est venu pour se faire prendre en photo
très belle réussite

Hi Pablo,
An interesting shot about the clouds!
It's very impressive when we look carefully at the clouds formations, all the things that can be seeing.
So this is a pretty good capture of this landscape, with the pines showing at the horizon.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

You have an admirable sense of perspective as a landscape artist, Pablo.
This beautiful cloud-scape illustrates that fact in ample measure.
The two layers of earth colours and multi layers of clouds and sky form into the most attractive composition here.
The proportion of earth and sky within the frame is also the best one could think of in terms of aesthetics.
Thanks and best regards.

Hi Pablo.
I think this is extraordinary shot. Set of pictured objects are unexpected and so attractive. I like combination of smooth bright brown ground, dark tree silhouettes and rich cloudy, perfectly illuminated and colours sky. As usual for your landscape pictures details, sharpness and composition are great. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Pablo

Stunning clouds and they show up wonderfully against that beautiful blue sky. The tiny trees really give a sense of scale



Bonjour Pablo,
Excellent picture of the cloud, the sky is wanderful with nice colors,an excellent POV. well done

Hi Pablo,
Thoose clouds add such beautiful texture and depth to the scene. A plain blue sky no matter how nice, is not as good as having some fluffy clouds. Well composed with beautiful colors.

Hi Pablo,
Everything depends on the crystall trough you look at it! I find this sky with it big cloud quite aesthetic, as I rarely can see one like yours. Once again, you've succeeded with this landscape. It's full of dynamism and interest.

Hello Pablo!
I'm glad to see that you've got the time to post several beautiful photos these days. This magnifficent rainy cloud is an example of excellent exposition - no burning in the whites, full detail in the darks of the clouds, fabulous blues of the sky.
