I was in two minds with this one whether to keep it as a panoramic picture which is what was originally shot for, or to zoom in and crop it to the left centre where the sun is shining brightest on the sea, i love the colours and the way the sun is bouncing brightly off the sea, it was shot with 5 photos originally and the shadows boosted slightly in LR5. Do you think it would be better cropped and zoomed in slightly or as it is???

Leave As is in my opinion . To crop would somehow, unbalance it if that makes any sense. Grin

I like this as it is.

What I would want to do is boost the shadow areas a little, and darken the sky: while there is a full range of tones in this, the land areas look dim, at least on my screen.

Beautifully seen and caught light: and nicely put together!

For me it is just the right comp, only little neg point is the green needs a bit of life put into it, but otherwise great piece of work.

I can only agree with others, Andy, I would prefer to see the whole landscape as you have presented it here, with the fullness of the sun's rays.
The background hills on the left provide a nice contrast to the horizon and are well placed.
