This challenge seemed like a good excuse to have a go at some big fluffy clouds.

@Constantini thanks! Getting them looking like three dimensional objects but still fluffy clouds is definitely a challenge.

Clouds are always a toughie, great job with handling their volumes

It would defintely have, hence the relief once i found it was trees :D

@Umbohr Wow, I hadn't even thought! If they were tanks that would have been a bit dark, wouldn't it?

Umbohr (Level 4 Satyr) @ 8/12/2022 13:50

Great entry! Ngl at first I though it was tanks and not trees, I much prefer that it's trees  great stuff

@yuanhei thanks. When I started I had the perspective a bit wrong and I only ended up altering it to make sure the cloud area was 3/4 of the picture. It worked out very well for the believability of image.

The perspective of the clouds makes the picture magnificent

@Trigonomicon yes! I'm very much a fan of the swirly cloud.

@SeDiceBisonte thanks, I've been looking at some of the amazing cloudscapes this summer where I live. Around about golden hour you get some really interesting lighting effects. This pixel joint challenge came along right on time.

@Irenaart glad you like it.

Trigonomicon (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 8/7/2022 04:51

Not only are they fluffy, but also swirly, another important feature for good clouds.

SeDiceBisonte (Level 8 Spaceman) @ 8/7/2022 03:00

Great concept, and really lovely lighting on the clouds.
