A wonderful photo. Who gave it a poor? Fantastic effect with the 24mm too.

would love to have seen this portrait, showing more of the needle - did you try a shot like that? -j-

I took shots with & without the top of the Pinnacle but felt that the crop gave more impact as the eye tends to wander away from the subject when all the pin is included.I also did some slight adjustment with the transform tool + the camera was held as high as possible from the top opposite, ie. arms above my head. The weather was starting to cloud over, hence the rather flat lighting.

Brilliant. Pure drama!

The issue with light is not apparent as the shot works so well with the wide angle affecting the background. Excellent.

Superb.. have a 5.
I don't think this would have 'worked' if the rope had been any other colour.
Great composition - the Pinn being off centre makes all the difference.
