Not a bad shot, makes a nice Ben, makes a nice panoramic.

It looks soft (not sharp) here, and if your original looks sharp, its just because youve left out a sharpening step when re sizing. Its looks better sharper. I would be tempted to lose a little bit, but not all of the foliage on the left. Ive loaded a sharpened and cropped mod.

The re sizing process: Set image to 72ppi; set longest side to 1000 pix; save image as, - use the max file size. Then open the new file, check for sharpness (more often than not it will be soft), sharpen as required, save, and then upload.


Hope this helps,


regards


Willie

Quitee good but a bit under exposed. You correctly darkened the foreground, but could lighten the sky and sun a tiny bit which would improve impact. Increasing contrast a touch might help.
