    I love it, Sharon. It just goes to show that rules are meant to be broken.

    Splendid image, Sharon. Plenty here to spur the imagination.

    I was wondering why you decided to go with so much foreground and whether a 16:9 (cropping off some of the bottom) worked?

    Donald's suggested crop would remove the little bright patches at the bottom that I find are a bit distracting. However the composition works fine for me but would like the mushrooms!? removed and the mid tones and contrast lifted slightly.

    A thought provoking image for sure. I believe the crop Donald suggests would only make this image stronger.

    Re: Solitary

    I tried so many crops of the foreground with this and couldn't find one that kept the undulating texture of the saltpans (without looking like a crop)...and then there's the grass diagonal on the left that I quite like. In the end I left it .

    Please feel free to crop it as you see fit Donald I am sure you would get it spot on

    And that is as it should be, ... 'cause it's your image.

    Not so sure about the latter part of the statement, but just to show what I was thinking ....................

    This does lose the impact of the saltpans.

    I do like that crop Donald and the picture is probably better balanced but the terrain just loses some of that wonderful 'crater like' texture.

    This retains the craters. Though it loses some of the solitary feeling, I think it retains some of it. It's also a more traditional placement of the person, which may make it less appealing.

    Ok I can admit when Iam wrong and now I feel like Sharons crop was spot on. I like the person deeper in the photo.
