If 15 photogs to take a photo and you get 15 different images.
You're clipping the blacks on the post, tree, and hills, but a simple bump off the shadows and you're back in business. You have foreground, middle, and back. I dig it. Makes me feel warm and eager for travel.
The compression from flicker is doing the clipping via some compression. The pole has green and texture in the original image, but the via flicker, it loses a lot. I do need to go back and do some more pp for flicker and perhaps printing.

I prefer it as is with the rail on that side. If you were to step over, you would only get the silohuette side of the rail. I think the sun lit rail adds to it.
If you can somehow capture more contrast in the hilly area to the left and the tree to the right (like more of a complete silhouette), that would complete it.

I would have got low to the left. The small boulders would have given foreground interest and you may have been able to replace the post with the backlit grasses just to the left.
Great light though.

After thinking about the area, composition etc. After seeing this pointed out. I agree that this could make for a strong image. I plan on giving this a shot in the near future.Assuming that there is room without falling off the edge as the shoulder gets a lot narrower behind where this image was taken from.
Thank you all for the constructive cc and compliments.
