Almost a fine art print. Can you fill in some gaps on the EXIF ?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Thank you for your kind words David. I have now filled in the details. The lens was/is a Voigtlander Color Skopar 20mm with a K-mount.

I'd very curious to know what improvements would actually make this better so that next time if and when I visit this place, I could keep those points in mind. For example, I was struggling with the balance of the picture. I was wondering if i should crop the left most portion of the image to eliminate the rock, so that the focus shifts to the middle, but doing so *might* mess with the balance.

any pointers ?

Excellent! I would keep the rock on the left as it adds depth. Experiment with a 16:9 crop? Sometimes that works to give a more panoramic view but not at the expense of too much the foreground.

There's not much wrong with the composition and the light is incredible. Liked.

Thanks Rob. I must confess, I did dabble with the 16:9 but as you already guessed, it ate into the foreground. The other way, the details in the sky would have been lost with the sun sticking too close to the top frame, which IMHO would have ruined the pic.

Thanks Mike, very kind words indeed. Yes the light was fabulous, although I had to wait for 3 days to see it. The rest of the days were dreary and well, let's just say non conducive
