Apologise for another one from the archives (old faithful as Keith "KBAN" christened it), hopefully get out at the weekend for new shots.
similar to the last upload taken a little earlier and a different orientation.
I was thinking of cropping a little of the bottom, but decided against it, would be interested in what people think.
cheers
Mo

Nice work again Mo, I don't fully agree with johnjrp [sorry John] about the crop, as I feel there is a certain amount of lightness in the fg that would be lost with a dramatic crop and therefore would darken the shot too much.

Nice work anyway.

I agree with Paul (sut68...I think cropping it would make the shot much darker and you'd lose that wonderful foreground lighting and detail.

like the grity skyscape and the almost warlike ruged landscape forground that gives a sence of forboiding.

this is offset by the hope of the old faithful light house. well done on a very dramatic shot, IAJACKS

I think this would look fine in a larger setting and does not need any cropping...perhaps you would crop the sky though? The bottom is so interesting with detail I think it is better left in!
