Patchwork skies The sun melts away the dark clouds, revealing bright blue skies above the gloom. When it looks the bleakest, seek out the light.

You have a nice strong foreground to balance the awesome sky; the pier takes you deep into the image; in fact, to the land across the water. Interestingly, the foreground, pier, land and back again creates a circle that keeps your attention in the scene. I’d also say that HDR was well applied to this. Final note, the white portion through the posts of the pier is a little distracting; so, a little burn here might improve an already wonderful shot. Cheers. LikeLike Reply Stunning beauty!
