Absolutely gorgeous partition of the image, like a double screen in a movie theater with the road and the forest : and those surreal colors of this indigo and firing sky are stunning ! 5****

@Mhelene: The Orton effect makes the dark clouds seem more ominous, as well. Thanks a lot !

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Wow!! What a powerful composition this makes as the clouds bring nighttime to the daytime sky!! A great PoV as well with the leading lines in the road.

@Dany Kervran: Thanks a lot, Dany, and also franz : yes, I used some Orton to make the sky more glowering.

franz from Baden, Austria

THIS is very special - the powerful, vivid colours and the impressive contrasts literally 'jump' at the viewer! I also like the Orton effect (whether intended or not).
