This image is a cropped version of a photo I took on my way home from The Lakes last year.
The wide open vista was quite stunning at the time but when I looked at the image back home it didn't look quite so stunning. Some of the beauty was the sheer expanse of the view and just being there. This you can't really put over in an image.
Anyway it got me thinking what should I have concentrated on in the image to make a better photo. Seeing opportunities for photos is not my strong point. I narrowed it down to the cropped version above.
I've uploaded a jpg of the original raw file so you can see what I mean. I know the foreground of the original is boring and too dark in places, I'd have cropped the bottom down a bit if I'd used more of the image.
Your comments would be most appreciated, especially composition and image content.
