I didn't realize there was anothe skyscape thread. It's okay with me.

What makes this a "bit of a snap"? Very curious.

It feels like a snap (rather than a carefully assembled image that "does something" ) because, while I am happy with the balance between cloud and sky and the way the blue leads down to the edge of the frame, the abstractness that I saw has been fatally compromised by the tree and what appears to be the lid of a "dog-poo bin"; These can't be cropped without losing the essential shape of the image I saw, and I clearly didn't see them in the frame when I took the photograph (bad bad bad).

So this is an example of where I have captured the idea of an image rather than the image I saw, and while it's "ok" it's also "nothing really", which is why I call it a snap.

I am delighted at how well the X100 captures skyscapes and the DR is superb on the camera coupled with a razor sharp lens capable of resolving great detail.
Here are a three from the camera that I love that are primarily landscape but with skies that enhance the images to my mind.
