Too much sky. My question: How do you manage to get an image of over one megapixels on this forum? If I submit one that is one pixel over the limit it is automatically downsized.

Thanks for the input but I rather like the sky and consider it integral to the image.

As for image size I am just posting a link to photobucket inside the IMG tags like so;

I do feel that removing some of the sky (about 10-15%) would be good. Voted for #3.

I like #3 but I have to agree the sky is a bit overpowering. The main thing is you're the artist and you like it, so that's what matters.

thanks everyone for your comments.

I am going to consider cropping some of the sky out.

I find it is hard to see the whole picture at once on most people's monitors because it is in portrait orientation, causing you to scroll up, then down then maybe back up, making it seem like the sky is superfluous. However when I look at this shot on a iPad or other tablet device allowing the whole shot to be viewed in Portrait mode I find the sky adds to the dramatic effect of the bigger than life scene being recorded.

I agree, remove a bit of the sky, and #4 has it.
