This is the pic I have posted to these forums. I tried to use the fence at the bottom to show the scale of the smoke, not sure if it worked or not. I think my aperture setting (F3.6) was wrong for this pic too - wish I'd done it with a smaller one now. Anyways, I'm keen to hear what people think of this pic and possible improvements.

Hello lhtorrie,

Welcome to the forum from the landa wondah land down undah!

Below you will find my take on your pic.

I probably overworked the colors a bit...was trying to bring out the smoke a little more.

Digcamfan - thanks for having a crack at retouching my pic - the colors certainly do look better than the original! I noticed you cropped out the fence at the bottom... kinda answersmy question about that for me too! Thanks for your feedback.

I liked the fence, myself. The posts lead the eye nicely to the main subject, especially as they lean in the right directions, but not too precisely.

AlanT- I wasn't sure if I should include them in the frame or not when taking the pic. The grass around the fence proved irresistable to the camera's autofocus, when I really wanted the whole pic in focus.
