Okay the one comment I keep getting is "you should have shown more landscape". The thing is there wasn't a landscape, right below the treeline was a busy 4 lane freeway.
This image was taken on the same [link]
and show the roads that were the "landscape".
I managed to snap this shot without any traffic in it but when shooting landscape there was always traffic in the view - I'm not fond of having blurred traffic in my photographs.
I've just uploaded one of the rest of my photographs, that all have the traffic in them. I'll let you be the judge on which you prefer, but my opinion is that I hate the one with the cars. [link]
I really appreciate all of your comments - but please understand I did the best I could in the situation I was in.
