This a masterpiece of photography. How long was the exposure?

Dramatic indeed Hassan.
Slendid colours and a great composition.
Only one small thought, and that is, imo it would be better if the tree was 'pin sharp'. I suppose the long exposure caused the blur.

Another interesting shot with that great light.
It's just like there has occurred an explosion. The movement in the air and that foggy bottom at the horizon makes him very attractive and successful for me :)

Bravo - I love this shot. Great colour and brooding intensity.

I like the flow of the clouds here. You were in a right moment at the right place. But technically this image doesn't strike me. I wish for some detail in the tree and foreground. Image looks underexposed and I can see places that you brightened up later in PS, as they have that specific noise/dirt like here or here . Looking at the brightest part in the sky I see you had possibility for a longer exposure thus for more detail and more smooth sky and detail in the darkest parts of sky. This edge is very rough seems like is cut/paste almost and generally tree looks flat. The coloring you did later in PS seems to be the strongest part of the image.

#11 Martynas: Thanks Martynas for your notes but , the light was too strong in middle sky (the sun) that's why even with gradient filter -4 stops did not capture more details in shadows .
I agree I should fix the noise , but as personal taste I like silhouette photography , Regards

#4 Jeff : Yes Jeff Long exposure caused the blur which I mean it for clouds and to get a silhouette tree , I am still a lonely tree lover :)
