I like this picture, but it's a bit over-sharpened I think - try to keep the halo along the balanced rock in control when you sharpen. You can quickly address that in your RAW file and upload it as a second version. Smile Well done on the composition.

Cheers all. Alistair....I'm not convinced it is over sharpened, because the rest of the image looks fine. It maybe the re-sizing that has caused the visible halo around the rock....but as a non techie I could be wrong. Many thanks for the input Smile

Really like this Martin. The tension created by the rock works well and gives the shot impact. Personally I dont find the image oversharp.
