First thing I'd like to say, is, I really do like this picture (I wouldn't write a critique. if I wouldn't^^) I love the tonality of the trees, the composition is great, and the long exposure time gives it a very dramatic effect.
What I really don't like are the trees distorted, due to the wide angle lens with the camera tilted upwards.
this makes the Image looks kind of flat, what is a little bit sad because this image loos sooo beautiful O.O

so all in all the composition is great, the textures, colours are wonderful but the distortion really disturbs the look :o
ohh.. and if you are not of the same opinion, please tell ;)
What do you think?

A fine sense of drama portrayed; a good use of perspective to enhance it.

Nice! I like the motion in the clouds and I think it works well in black and white :)

Well, I used a 10 stop ND filter (which takes the light reaching my camera's sensor and darken it by 1000x, therefore allowing me a longer shutter speed) and held my other filter very carefully in front of it. I set my exposure to what I figured it needed to be (which turned out to be 77 seconds) which allowed for the clouds, which were coming directly towards me, to streak in this dramatic fashion.
Then, I uploaded the image to my computer, adjusted the brightness and contrast and converted it to black and white :)
