I made it a little more of a 16:9 aspect gives a little width to it. What do you think?

DJ

Edit: Actually saw a little noise in the sky just blended it out.

You're welcome. The first thing i learnt from here is that PP (Post Processing) should be avoided unless you have to do it. The more you take away from the original shot the more detail you are going to remove (and hence the digital waste).

So all I did was take the original shot, and then used the crop tool to make the 16:9 style crop. Then I had a quick tweak of the saturation and boosted the contrast a little. I then resized it down to 50% of the original size (in the resize box just changed the size parameter to percent and put 50 in the width). After I posted it up to the forums I noticed there was some noise in the sky so I went back to photoshop with the blur tool just run the blur tool across the noisy bits of the sky to just flatten that out. As I mentioned its not the sort of shot you need to sharpen. When blurring though I avoided the area where the bright sun is shown. This is already pretty sharp and therefore I did not want to disturb the way this looked.

I really like the shot too... well done!
