Thanks for that. That photo was taken at 70mm and this is the same scene at 38mm. (Note: I did not spend much time processing it.) I'm standing above a big drop and you can see the road disappearing steeply into the corrie (valley) below.

Thanks Annie - they are both nice compositions.

You may want to consider a crop that includes a portion of the road, just to give the scene a stronger sense of scale. We all know how big roads can be, and when we see one that small, winding it's way across a gargantuan landscape, it makes us all stop and reflect. IMO I feel that would make for a stronger emotional impact, really conveying to the viewer just how massive the landscape is.

Thanks so much for your feedback. I may work on this one or another at 42mm and see if I can recreate the mood of the original but include the portion of road that's visible.

You are very welcome.

I only brought up the issue because I've done similar shots, cropping at the time the picture was taken, feeling the grandeur of the moment only to realize that viewers would not feel the same way later never having been there. At least with digital we can take a number of shots....do, and undo to our hearts desire. Learn from my mistakes.:lol:

Nice creepy interpretation of a famous place. I'm having a hard time telling....was this an overcast day? Either way, nice processing.

Yes it was overcast. Thanks. I convert RAW to a fake HDR using Photomatix and then convert to B&W.
