    I'm tempted to think, Pat, that with this scene you need to decide between either the land or the sky being dominant.

    Possibly try two different crops.

    One with the foreground as it is but cropping something like 5 x 4 ratio; or possibly a square crop to lose part of the sky.

    And another version where the land is reduced by around half to mostly provide a base for the sky.

    At the moment, the balance seems slightly odd to me.

    Hi Pat,

    I think it is too tall (so basically agreeing with Geoff).

    I played around moving the picture up and down in the browser, cropping 15% off either the bottom or the top seems to improve it (but for me, not both).

    Cheers,

    Thank you Geoff, Dave for your reply.
    I agree with you both, and am finding that these kind of images don't tend to work in portrait orientation, unless they are something exceptional.
    Best Wishes, Pat
