Reaching Unto The Clouds
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

Thy mercy O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Psalms 36: 5
This afternoon I couldn't help but notice the clouds. They reminded me of angel wings..I was in the parking lot of a grocery store when I shot this picture...and remarked to a lady walking past how pretty the clouds were ..she said she didn't notice them until she saw me taking pictures. That really surprised me:)
I decided to enter this into the Ripple theme, because clouds are vaporous
and it is showing a rippled effect.
Thank you very much Donald Garrett for the generous spotlight!!!
Thank you also very much JanElle (Heather) for the Nomination.
in response to your questions, Bailey Cooper, I really did not do a lot to this picture in post processing but here is what I did in my old Adobe Photo Deluxe shop ..I used the Instant Fix, worked with the contrast to deepen the tones, and also used an un-sharp mask filter that adjusts to the degree of sharpness needed ...I went around the edges of the picture a tiny bit with a feathered filter....I don't have fancy new photo shops installed but just use the basics ..My computer crashed last week due to an electrical storm and even lost some of my original programs in my Adobe photo Deluxe and am using what I have until all the problems get fixed with the new operating system... I stopped down manually in my camera to a small aperture F/ 16 to get as much detail in the sky as I could to safely hand hold at 1/100 sec. when I shot the picture. The yellow tones might have been produced from an 81B Hoya filter I had on my 200 mm lens and when I adjusted the Instant fix and contrast in my Adobe photo shop it also deepened the darker shades of the clouds in the sky. Thank you for asking...Yes, I agree Leslie, I think it was spiritual. My husband and I planted some rose bushes in the ground that I bought from money given to me from friends to buy as a memorial for my late mother . In the afternoon that same day this past Friday I saw these clouds in the sky and it gave me so much pleasure to see these "angel wings"...as my beautiful mother who passed away in Oct. of 2011 was one of the angels in my life...
