    Good to see you posting again Al! Nice shot!

    If you wanted to make the Mt. Mayon less hazy, you could try increasing the contrast on just the mountain and perhaps the sky a bit.

    For me, the littered foreground is a bit distracting as well as uninteresting. Also, most of the sky looks blown because you have metered for the foreground. I would have taken a tighter shot with just a little bit of foregorund and correctly exposing for the mountain / sky. I am an amateur with very little knowledge on composition, so everything I have said might not be correct. Just my thoughts...........

    Hi Bedan, thank you for viewing. I did some cloning on the littered foreground and I made some of them visible to make the view natural not overly processed. I agree with you suggestions.

    ahhhhhhhhhh Mayon - my Philippine mistress

    It is without a doubt my absolute favourite place to visit (my wife's family lives in San Rafael and Travesia)

    This is my shot (panorama setting) taken from San Francisco Bridge in Guinobatan (no enhancements)
    The Majestic Mt. Mayon

    you could spend an entire lifetime photgraphing this beauty and still not get the perfect shot which capture the emotion of being in her presence
