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.

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
