Very conflicted about the crop of this image. I vascilated between cropping out two people on the far left, who balanced the image but distracted from the space ship "story". Decided "less is more", but am still not sure about the crop. Observant viewers will see the Hollywood sign in the distance, just above and to the right of the man's head. Sadly, it is not as legible in the DPC version.

Hah, this was yours? I'm one of your 9's, can't believe it finished so poorly. Beautiful processing.

Excellent. I have a similar kind of shot from up here - a marvelous place for lovely light, long shadows. AND you got the Hollywood sign - nice!
