    I assume the subject is the interesting rock formation in the bottom of the image. If so,consider cropping just a little bit above the top of it.

    I am wondering what a colour version of this shot would look like. Perhaps it might separate the "chimney" from the background.

    Good point about the crop, colour version below. Just thinking i need to get lower on the chimnley and avoid the town altogether.

    I think a cropped color version works better than B&W.

    Chris a B&W photo is usually about about constrast (or texture) but in your case there is no contrast in your BW version so I agree with Richard and Mike that the color version works better, a cropped one would be even better.

    Many thanks Guys for your feedback and expertise.

    Based on your input and reflection I tend to agree, the colour one does work better and the composition is wrong based on the town below.

    Good learning experience for me, thanks again
