shoturtle,

Well, filling the frame is no end in itself, In this case the picture is appealing because of the free space

My wife think it is a good shot also with the free space with the hint of the clouds.

But back to my point and not take away from your great shots. The ef-s 55-250 is really great lens. And it is easy to travel with.

Goldwinger,

Thank you for viewing and the comments. Well, I certainly couldn't have done it before taking the picture

I must admit that I do some pre processing for close ups, putting away a grass straw and other minor tweaks of the reality

Don't know if it's ok, really (pre- and postprocessing I mean) After all it alters the view

Yes, I know its a strongly debated topic but, I personally can't find any harm in touching up a photo to make it more pleasing to the eye. Even in the days of film, there were tricks the tech would use to enhance the image. The only problem I have is when someone tries to alter a photo to be something that's not real.
