Thanks very much to take the time to make comments on my shot:
Dave/bill : agree, it's probably the log that gives me the yes/no feeling about the shot. If I clone it out something is missing, if I leave it in it's kind of counter to all the other lines.
kal : I'll try some of your suggestions. Funny, I didn't notice the grey strip until you mentioned it.
wolfnowl : Agree some more cropping might make the pic better but your version is a bit tight for my taste. Also I don't like to crop too much off shots, I'm trying to get the crop as near perfect as possible in the field. Just old fashioned I guess, must be from my color slide days when that was the only possibility.
Again thanks for all your comments
