Normally I'm a huge proponent of using a polarizer but in this case, because you're shooting straight up, the darkening on the edges is a bit distracting to my eye. Otherwise, this is a great shot.

Very strong vignetting - maybe would've looked a bit better if it wasn't so pronounced.

Is not really a risk as it is a condition. I understand your meaning though. It looks like your photo has some vignetting which is illegal. However, sometimes when I use my teleconverter and it's at a certain point, I get this effect.

Very cool perspective - even the ignetting lends itself to the feeling of your vision narrowing as your contemplation of the dizzying heights takes its toll...
