    I like the negative space. The curvature is nice. Great shot.

    Is this the same Harper's Ferry that's up Virginia/WV way... just got back from working up there.

    I find myself wishing that there was a little less negative space on the left hand side. Otherwise, I love the simplicity and the way that the bush below and just to the left of the moon looks like it's reaching out towards the moon. Great capture!

    Oh and on the picture of you and the young lady... My wife says that in every couple, there's usually one that's less attractive than the other. I hope that, like me, you're okay with resigning yourself to that role... :D

    funny that you worded it like that, because I call this one "reaching out"

    Very nice! I like that crop. I kind of like the hill, though. I was thinking of a crop like this:

    That's the bridge I was working on. :-D I was down in the tunnel under where you're sitting. Pretty cool seeing it from a different angle too.

    Some history down there in that little town for sure!

    As for the pic, I love it. I really like that hint of color in the foreground. I also think that Pugs has the crop just about perfect.

    Nice work.

    yeah I agree with that crop. The second picture I posted was another pic I took, not a crop of the first.

    nice! it is a very cool place! both slangly and temperaturely!

    agreed, I think I might do an 8x10 of this one and that usually involves taking a tiny bit off of the sides, so I am sure I will do that crop!

    thanks for all the nice comments!
