While it does emphasize the expanse of the valley below, it also reveals the slightly distracting dark foliage and rectangular blocks on the near horizon - I wonder if it might be better to crop the left side in to the point of losing the darker objects.


You are totally spot on about the space to the left. I prefer a tighter crop like a previous entry I had of the same subject:)

How very interesting! I'm just reading a book about Elizabeth I and the chapter I just finished is (in part) about the beacons that were built to warn of the arrival of the Spanish armada. So, thanks for this!
