fwiw I'm distracted by the deep shadow / highlight, along the top-edge, one third from the left. Cloned or cropped to remove that eye catching high-contrast at the edge, and I find it easier to look across the picture.

Good point, Isaac.

Chuck, I bet you have images without the searchlights. To me they are novel but somewhat distracting from the other fine elements here.

Well, if he took the photo again at midnight, it might not have the "searchlights," which I believe are actually what most of us call "the sun," peeking through from behind the clouds.

I think Isaac's suggestion would strengthen an already excellent image.

Thanks much for the comments.

Isaac and Eric - you're right.  That extra viewpoint from unbiased eyes is exactly why I post here.

Scott - I'll admit it, the novelty of the sunbeams was one of the reasons I chose to post this one.  I shot at this spot for about 40 minutes and 2/3 of the shots has some sort of narrow beam of light coming through the clouds.  I was mostly interested in the light that seems to be pouring down out of the high valleys and how reminiscent it is of the cool air that flows down out of the high valleys at this time of evening.  Like I said above unbiased eyes are always helpful.  :)

That Y shape is eye-catching. Let us know if it starts to become old ;-)
