hi curly!
it's extraordinary how you made the fields and the clouds resemble ocean waves. it def makes me want to seek shelter.
it's beautifully done.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great choice to process in B&W as it emphasizes the ominous storm on the horizon. The vast, open landscape also helps to give the lighthouse a sense of "fragility" here as if it may be consumed by the storm.
