    The exposure is a bit low Leo.

    Edited: somehow my fat fingers put this comment on a wrong thread. No idea how that could happen.

    I like this. Good composition with the sweeping road leading us through the picture. The exposure looks OK in my humble opinion.

    Yes a tricky light, Leo.

    Any brighter would over expose the snow and bright areas in the clouds. Plus a loss of impact from those dark rain clouds.

    Thanks for your comments, apreciate, really.
    Now, a tough question ( actaully two )
    1. what you will do from exposure/technical point of view
    2. are you going to use a different composition ? ( "lower ground", "higher sky", left/right... )

    Thanks for your time and comments,
    Leo

    I suppose moving your shooting angle by walking to the left or right wasn't really an option.

    So I think the only thing I would consider changing, Leo, is to crop a little tighter on the bottom and left side.

    Maybe crop up to the base of the central barrier and a similar amount from the side. Which will concentrate more on the storm.

    Otherwise fine for me.

    Thanks Geoff,

    Moving to right was a "hard choice", because of the tree ( I could move front left to avoid tree, I know, I just see afterwords). Moving left...might be interesting. I will do the crop and put it here.
    Thanks for your suggestions,
    Leo

    Suggested cropping. Is sometimes less is more to pin down the interest focal point?

    Leo,
    I like the picture, not so much your crop. Just looking at it on screen (and in the lightbox)
    I think it looks better if you were to crop the bottom, up to the bottom of the guardrail on the
    left. The tree on the right doesn't really bother me, and by cropping it out you lose the hill in
    the back ground (on the right) that the sun rays are shining on. Also in your crop you lose all
    of the 'clear' sky to the left, which I thought gave it greater impact. Just a thought.
