I'd just crop it to a widescreen 16:9. The wider ratio lends itself to the composition and you can lose your shadow easily then.

I love fish eye shots! Very nice image, well exposed, good composition but I can't help but notice your shadow in the bottom right hand corner. Just something to keep in mind next time!

ive photographed this myself on a trip north a few years back and didnt have a fisheye lense. it truly benefits being shot this way as it looks much more impressive!
i remember the little worn mud path leading down from it leads onto a grass clearing which i presume was left for tourist, as a suggested photo point, but your angel angle (had to put them words together somehow) is unique and works much better, well done!!

by the way, doesnt it look impressive from the motorway, looking over the trees as you crest the hill...

Great image. As said though, try to either crop out the shadows or use a healing/clone brush on them.

If i took it id try playing with the sky, see if i cant make that blue a bit more vivid, but thats only a small thing, and its pretty good as is.

I would also clone out the buildings, and crop off right upo to the road edge on the left hand side. That will help get rid of anything detracting from main focal point of the image.

Nice work.

hope you dont mind the intrusion but i thought i'd have a go with it on photoshop cs5 to take away your shadow. the tree shadows dont really bother me in this because i know theres a nice little tree line there to encourage people to go take a look as they cant see it all from the road. whipped your shadow out in a second using content aware. effortless. now your eye isnt drawn to your shadow at all, its all about the great image!
