It's just a really nice picture. One of the best pictures we have had on here recently, along with some of the stuff that Timo has been doing. And no, it doesn't need a crop, and no you didn't have a cherry picker or a stepladder when you took the shot, and let's all just enjoy it for what it is. Sometimes your first instincts are the right instincts.

John, I would hope that anyone who can offer a dispassionate critique of any picture posted in this forum would speak up. So I say, let's all be both honest and polite about what we think. After all, this is the User Critiques forum, not the Mutual Admiration forum. It's reasonable to assume that anyone who posts photos here is seeking honest, constructive criticism and not merely praise. Although praise is certainly nice too.

...and we accept that others critiques will often disagree with our own and leave it at that. My presumption is that i can learn from each - accepting what i find of value at the time.  ;)

Of course all points of view are valid, as long as they don't conflict with my own.   ;)

For the record, I appreciate all honest criticism.  All criticism, both positive and negative, help me improve my photographic vision.  And IMHO that's the whole idea behind the User Critiques forum.

Well, I certainly wasn't suggesting that we forego the critique aspect of this forum. It was just that I felt that people had flogged this one to death, and we were in danger of losing sight of a very nice picture in a welter of nit-picking, that's all.
