[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These angry clouds hovered above the Steilacoom Pier in Steilacoom a historic town on Puget Sound in the state of Washington USA.I took this photo from the hill overlooking the Pier. The ferry on the right was about to leave for the Anderson Island seen on the horizon. The Ferry dock also serves Ketron, Anderson and McNeil islands. There is a boat ramp next to the dock that is used by kayakers and other boaters.
thanks for visiting.

Hi Muhammad!
Another nice and impressive scene. The image, with splendid light, incredible clouds and vibrant colors is faschinating. Good DOF.
Only a bit thing: I would have deleted the black "thing" on the left...where there are the clouds... near the frame.
However a very pleasant composition.
Ciao my friend! Vanda

Hello Muhammad,

Like the mysterious clouds, romanticizing the late afternoon.
Beautiful scene of nature that offers amazing contrasts.
Different brightness to the end of the year.
Thank you for this fascinating composition.Mes compliments.
Regards. Pleasant Weekend.

Wow, what a beautiful scenario you have caught here, Muhammad!
Great blue color tones and perfect match to the emerging green on the left quarter of the picture.
The sharpness and POV are well done, and the clouds add great mood into the shot.
Well done!


Boa tarde Muhammad,

Excellent POV, beautiful colors, perfect lighting.
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

A textbook shot here, good low placement of horizon with plenty of space for the clouds to drift.

The one negative here is the tip of a pole on the very left handside of the frame, it could easily have been cropped or cloned out of the shot.


Nicely composed and in a darkish mood given by the huge cloud, i like that feeling.

The sun-lighted areas in the left part such the road bring some 'hope' :)

Nice one!

Bonjour Muhammad,
Jolie composition, pleine de profondeur, créée par cet énorme nuage qui vole la lumière du fond.
La route éclairée par le soleil apporte sa contribution!!!

Hi Muhammad,

You're capturing well seascapes and aky by excellent tone and a good composition, so it's impressive to see thick grey clouds of winter among blue sky. It seems that that rain or the thunder will fall at any moment.
