I like the shot. I like the B&W. I think the un-level horizon is distracting though.

Generally, I don't care for a subject that sits smack in the center of the frame, but in this case it seems to work. Definitely straighten out the tilt, and maybe crop some of the foreground grass...the drama is in the sky...I just think there's to much foreground as it is.

Looks like it was a sunny day, I think a normal photo without the 10 stop would fit perfect in when converted to Monochrome - problem with a 10 stop in such areas is taking a shot with no movement such as grass blowing in the wind otherwise they you can see motion blur..

But i think it's a nice shot, square crops works well - but perhaps showing more of the horizon will lead people to see that this photo was indeed taken on a slope..

I think on a shot like that colours are a lot of fun to play with. Looks fantastic, but, i reckon you should have a play on a colour version too :D
