For me there is a good balance in this picture, maybe 1 advice, take the photos from more distance so you can later crop it Amelia. I crop almost all my pictures.

I have a lot of replying to do on this one, so I'll start at the bottom and work my way up gradually.

Dear Frank, I will take your advice, and in fact, in the past, I have done just that and got the cropping wrong as well!! I quite often have to crop anything that has a horizon in it - for some reason I usually have tilt on them of up to 3 degrees to the left, a constant source of mirth and merriment to all the "panoramigos* out there "";-)**

However, I am glad that you think the balance is OK on this one :)

Greetings, Amelia

It is amazing what a little light can do Lutz, and unfortunately we are losing it rather quickly at the moment! :))))
