I love the image except for one thing... And I bet you know what that is. The perspective is excellent, and I'm not sure this has even been covered on Google Earth? If you get another chance, Jim, I'd love to see this with a more natural coloured sky, and without that pale band where sky meets terrain. In all honesty, Jim. This HDR melarkey is spoiling many of your shots which would otherwise be as great as, if not better than your pre-HDR days. But that is just one mans opinion. But you know me, I'm not one to ply you with bull...

Tombstone65~~~~It's good to see you Freddy ;) I'm pleased you liked it

Sigh~~~Things are not always what it seems Si,

HDR was not used on this image..However, a crude attempt was made in PS to alter the sky involving the quick selection tool..hence the halo. Having since watched a "how to do video" on [Utube][ I can see where I went wrong! BTW, getting rid of that halo is complicated. Your opinions are most welcome Si...BTW..I always tag my HDR shots!

Kind regards to you both ;_
