The b&w is great but it could use some more contrast, Stina. Don't be afraid of powering up the sky a bit more, provided the detail is retained in the clouds.

I had to learn about this way back when I was making b&w prints...too easy to let grays dominate. The hill in the foreground could be a good counterpoint to the darker areas. Just some thoughts.

I took a different picture from the same day (not that the quality is great, but I think it had more to work with) and tried again? Does this have a better range? Don't hold back, I'm trying to learn. :D

The foreground separation is good, Stina, but each area looks kind of flat in that the tones are the same in each of them. The sky virtually always increases in depth as you leave the horizon so it could use some graduated darkening. And it would help to do some selective darkening around the perimeter to help lead the eye through the picture. Have a look at Annie's shot below...it's a quite different day, but you can see how the eye is lead to the guts of the picture.

Examine your image and determine where you would like the viewers eye to travel, then help it to do that by darkening other areas. Best of all, study the old masters and see how they manipulated their prints to achieve the effects they wanted. It shouldn't be too hard for you...you're already doing good work.

Thanks for the feedback, Ricardo. I sent you a pm, so as not to clog up this thread. :D

You didn't ask me specifically, but . . .

I find the Mt. Tam area a distraction because it's so dark. It looks as if it didn't belong in this photo. Of course it belongs, geographically. I mean tonewise. It competes with the main subject, which I take to be the City and the low clouds above it and the fog coming in on the water.

I see what you are saying (now that you pointed it out), and totally agree. I always appreciate the feedback, and appreciate you pointing that out. I tried listening to Ricardo and I posted a different edit on Flickr. The new edits not great, but I think its a little better. :)

I don't normally do much with the sky...But after the tornado last week (and this week), there were some GREAT clouds around.

I believe they're called mammatus clouds. I'm sure somebody will correct my mistake if not.

An older picture from Yosemite trip last year. Saw this perfect cloud in the sky. What great timing.
