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.
