Here's the crop. I have serious reservations about this unless the upper grey area is greatly cropped, since that large expanse of grey was being propped up by that tree.
Thanks so much for providing the crop. I actually think it’s quite ok.
I’ve seen beautiful solid areas which when printed really well to the size that the file can support, look absolutely amazing. If there is a gentle graduation or subtly in the colour in the solid area, when printed it can be astoundingly beautiful. I’m still on the road and only have my laptop, but I’ll look more carefully at the solid sky when I get home.
I think there is also another image which might be worth considering – a vertical crop , in the big gap between the two areas of trees – approximately one third from the left.
I think if there is beautiful graduation or tonality in the sky, the tree on the left is totally unnecessary, and could be a more interesting and exciting image because it tosses out what we’ve been taught about composition, and brings in other elements of aesthetics which hold the image.
