What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? In the course, you cautioned about too much brightness (sky) at the top of the photo. I liked the angles and lines in the photo. Plus, the ridge in the rock seemed to be leading to the sky. Do you think there is too much there?

Composition always is about what you include in a photo, including how much. Composition is about communication, so you have to decide what you want to emphasize and that will help you decide how much of anything to show. The challenge for you in this photo is not how much of anything is there, but the way the image is cut in half by the horizon. Centered compositions, whether that is centered by subject or horizon, are rarely as interesting and do not engage a viewer in the scene as well. Decide what is important to you. If it is space and looking up to the sky, then frame the image so that there is mostly sky in the composition. If it is the ridge of rock, then crop to emphasize it so that there is mostly ground in the photo. Help your viewer know what is important. Rob
