I like it very much
I love the use of brush strokes to give the clouds texture and movement. Intentional or not, it came out wonderfully. Well done. I would have given this piece an 11 if you had painted FROM a photo, as opposed to ON a photo. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your description. However, that doesn't make it any less "art", nor does it make it less beautiful. It's really fantastic, thank you for sharing.
