To VeeJayCee: crop ...
Well .. I am hiding my and the places faults .. and it is funny I cropped this tighter as a reaction to the previous post which I posted then cropped tighter and liked the tighter crop that I didn't post .. but back to this image ..
It was raining on and off .. and I ended up with a grey sky that I managed to burn out (see previous post) .. I cropped away the trees on the right edge .. since some horrid people had carved a ton of graffiti into them .. so I didn't need to step back .. just fix my exposure and get rid of the stupid people .. and well I am standing on a small bridge .. so there was no back to step without falling into the creek ... but I do have some wider and even vertical views .. I was originally planning on stitching some vertical strips into a panoramic .. but the sky, the rain, and the graffiti put a damper on my plans.

thank you so much .. I really value your thoughts..

Re: To VeeJayCee: crop ...
I guessed there was a reason for this particuar crop. I myself have been advised to take a step ot two to the left when standing on the edge of a 300 ft precipice. LOL. Actualy I think the rainy overcast - in spite of forcing you to crop sky areas - has given this a wonderful soft light with just enough shadow for modelling and beautifully subtle colours. I think it's one of your best John and certainly one I wish I'd taken. I wish you good light.
