This is massively downsized from the original 23-frame 13739 x 7896 pixel image:

You need a way to give a sense of the scale of the image. How much sky can we see? If you were to make a hard copy of the image and display it how much wall space would do it justice?

You can see 23 overlapping frames worth of a full frame camera with a 50mm lens on the front. That makes it quite big. I did have house rooftops at the edge of the image to show the image scale but it detracted from the image. The idea is to enjoy the structure and form of the clouds - not to wonder how big it is.

Fair enough, I suppose I was distracted by the title of the post and your initial comments about how many pixels were in the image. :oops:

Have now been to the flickr link and had a look at the image at different sizes to see how it modified my overall feel for the clouds and lighting. I liked how it looked between the 240 x 138 and 640 x 368 sizes.

I suppose it is like most images the overall feel depends on canvas size and the surrounding space (looking on a screen or a gallery wall). :)

I don't get the point either. I don't think anyone is so keen on discovering details in clouds.

Take some shots of buildings, landscapes, etc.

Hi Greg,

The stats are very impressive a little lost in the picture as I can not see the impressiveness of those stats and I do agree that it would have been nice to see the perspective you are describing as it sounds like you have put in a lot of effort...

I love the picture and it makes a friggin awesome desktop backdrop on my LED screen!! Good work! :D

Al

The patterns look great - would've liked to see some sense of scale, but looks great nonetheless.
