Mitch, I am generally an admirer of your work, and given the amount of praise this post generated, I hope you would not mind a dissenting view: these photographs do not say Mitch Dobrowner to me. I am also a great admirer of black and white photography, but, for whatever reason, storm photography does not seem to work for me in b&w. It just does not have the surreal color shifts inherent in storm weather. Without those color shifts, the environment looks strangely detached from the drama in the sky and too calm. It is almost as if the pictures are cutout composites. The overall grayness does not help either. Once again, I hope you do not mind a dissenting view.
