Dawn Riders

By JenRogers    
This shot was taken at dawn on the side of Mt Bromo on Java. We were attempting to reach the crater ridge for dawn but had to turn back due to clouds of sulphur dioxide. I put a cloth over my mouth and decided to set my tripod up anyway to catch the dawn which was being diffused wonderfully by the smoke from the volcano, and a group of riders came past which completed the picture. This is one of my favourite shots and was in the final of the Wanderlust travel photographer of the year competition in 2013.

May I suggest a slight crop off the top of the image, IMO it focuses the attention to the subject matter. Either way it is still a smashing image. My UA for you.

Im no expert but I think the top of the picture is as beautiful as the bottom you could cut the picture in half and have two beautiful photos.
I give you my UA too!
