Yes it is pin sharp but what I comment in this picture is its sheer elegance and simplicity. I do not favour manipulations and this picture is just right for me.

Maybe a more playing and adventurous photographer would added a heon flying somewhere on the left but now it's not there it doesn't have an impact on the picture.

Congratulations.
