This was taken on a very stormy Sunday from our balcony at the beautiful Galerie Toscane in Lasalle, in the mountains in the Gard district of France.

You're getting good at using the whole black-to-white range of tonal value! Great exposure, great tone placement. NOW you need to start playing with curves. When your black and white are set, it's time to play with where the greys want to fall; different for every photo.

That black tree in the right foreground is great, and it closes off that whole corner so we don't "fall out" -- our eye descends, hits the black, moves back into the detailed bits.

This is my favorite of all your shots I've seen so far.
