This is another shot to accompany my previous landscape from the Galapagos. This time, though I've managed to mangle the resizing issue and get a larger image. Should I have cropped more off the bottom of the image though, what do you think? I've left it in as I thin kit tends to draw the eye into the picture more than before. When seen full size on print, the landscape that you are drawn into is wonderful. (in my humble opinion of course)

A fabulous landscape shot. It's beautifully sharp all the way through. Personally I like the foreground (especially as it is so different to the rest of the landscape) and agree with you that it draws the eye back into the shot...you almost feel like you are falling down the slope into it!

I think you were right not to crop the bottom, this does lead the eye, also I like the textured detail of the ground. Good POV here.

This one is far better than your previous one ! The composition is more balanced and more dynamic due to the portrait crop, and the whole landscape is so scenic ! The colors are simply great and the picture is very sharp for a scan. Great shot !

The foreground leads you into the main image IMO so I think it is best left.
The colours and sharpness are good but it's the view itself that makes this shot so outstanding :)

this one is even more interesting than the previous version as it shows more foreground. It's a great scenery. I have to go there at some point in my life. You have been fortunate to see it.
