I would have liked the bottom foreground rock more to the left, but it was what I was actually set up on and couldn't move to the right any more.

The scene is kind of ordinary, at least for the beautiful mountain/desert, High Sierra kind of thing, but the exquisite detail and the processing really bring this image to life. Very well done! 8
