Really atmospheric, with just enough mistiness in the background to give a sense of distance, without loking like flare.

The obvious thing would have been to use a less telephoto setting, and include all of the bend on the right: I think that this arrangement actually works rather well, with a sense of soemthing hidden and unknown, but continuity between the road in the foreground and the stretch further away...

So this is a bit of a different take on a classic sort of a composition, and very well executed. You've made good use of the thirds, some complicated and interlocking S-curves, and aerial perspective: that mistiness in the further planes.

I can see the possibility of a slightly more letterbox crop, but what you have is excellent, and my mod will be different rather than better.

Thanks Dudler.

I actually like your mod more with the crop.

Took me a while to figure out where your shot was taken, of course it is down towards the hotel. I think Dudler has said all there is to be said, some maybe comment on the bit of flare in the top lefthand corner but I don,t see a problem with it. Have uploaded a mod and it is more or less a copy from Dudler but with the post and main road taken out, I feel it cleans the general scene up.
Anyway nice landscape photograph.
Mike.

Thanks Mike and Dudler.
Big difference with the photo with the crop and the road and post taken out. I might consider a photoshop buying spree.
Cheers
