...Andy, this shot is worthy of an award. I would vote a "10" for it, but I would probably bring your score down because my "weight" is so low! The image evokes emotions of pensiveness and that's what photography is all about!
Kendog that was a point and shoot shot. It was the way it was. Wet, muddy and cold (Jan 2008). Very pleased with the way it came out. Sometimes I get tired of the classic blue sky etc. More charater and reality with cloud!! That's mostly all we get here anyway!!!! Thanks for the comment.
Your self-deprecation will get you nowhere, my good man. This shot shows evidence of compositional training...sure the elements may have been happenstance, but it takes a keen eye to arrange them in an artistic Gestalt!
