Crop the top slightly and the scene will sit a lot easier on the eye. Why is this? I'll try to explain. In a simple landscape panorama such as this the individual elements that go to make up the picture and their relationship with each other are vital. This picture has three elements to it, a foreground, a background and a focal point. A classic landscape construciton in fact, with all three elements sitting in the correct positions within the compositon. Introducing another element to this composure completely upsets it, that element being the crest of the background hillside and the land area beyond. I could go on about why this picture is superb, but the photographer really doesn't need that. Suffice to say it speaks to me and says get yer boots on! Love it.

Cheers John - I've just tried what you suggest and you're absolutely right, it does sit much easier on the eye. I couldn't put my own finger on what was odd about it, so many thanks for the input and for liking it enough to be so comprehensive - much appreciated.
