    Sometimes it's difficult for me to assess certain shots. We had a great time, and the scene was great to look at, but it seems to be a bit boring. There's not allot of subject matter to zero in on. What do you think?

    Lar, I agree that its lacking subject. I would bet that the great scope of the scene is what attracted you. That just doesn't convert in photos.

    I like the image...would a different crop make a positive difference?
  4. Well, you asked so I tried a crop. Do you think this gives your image more of a focus?

    Personally, I like the shot. The lack of specific subject doesn't bother me. After looking at your picture a while I came up with this.

    The tree on the left side of the shot has some neat sun angles on it. If It were the subject of a different shot with the orange glow on the branches, it would be really cool to have the clouds and hills in the background of that.

    Like the tree is the sheepdog looking over the heard of other trees on a hill. I know its hokey but thats what I saw anyway. :)
