    it's ok. i really like the bottom half lol maybe you should try the rule of thirds and that will make it more interesting to the eye?

    it belongs on a post card for whatevre place you live in ;)

    great pic again Matt, the trip was well all the crap shots if you got this one! The hour glass shape is intriquing. The trees on the top section look a bit dark - i'd be cool just to see a tad bit of texture in there but it certainly doesn't detract from the image. Very cool shot :D

    Thanks guys. It was very dark when I shot this, and just terrible lighting. I've gotten all the detail I can out of those trees.

    As far as the rule of thirds, if I crop it, it will lose the hourglass shape, and that is the whole point of the shot.

    I think its great the way it is. If I had taken it, I'd definately frame it and put it up on the wall. Beautiful job.
