What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I like the crack in the rock above the hen and chicks plant.

Thank you. I took Rob's advice and cropped it square. It's uploaded in this folder. Not sure if that is an intimate landscape or not without sky in it!

This is a very interesting use of a long, narrow vertical crop. We were much more limited in how we dealt with proportions of a photo in the days of film. Now we can do whatever we want. Thin proportions to perfect squares can all be great if they work with the subject and its surroundings. I think yours do. The sharp edge between rock and bright sky at the top is a little distracting (that edge comes from a limitation of digital -- notice you don't see it at the left where it is against a different background).

Thank you for your critique. I love squares so will try that format in this photo and others.
