15 Aug 11.  After having selected the image for today and while debating with myself my comment concerning it, I came to the conclusion that the image would be better served if I were to follow some of my most common advice to others and crop it some more. As it was it had been substantially cropped from the original, but time can often provide an improved perspective and, after having looked at it off and on for several months, it occurred to me that it was in need of further adjustment, and so it got it. Now there should be nothing distracting your eye at any point in the image. The shot was taken in the early morning hours during one of the Mountaineers Basic Class sessions, and as there was insufficient light to capture everything my eye was recording, and I didn't want to make ah HDR image of it to adjust for that factor, I elected to go with a silhouette of the scene forcing all the details to black and well as (hopefully) forcing your mind to put the details back into the black. I left the background as it was to provide some idea as to what we are seeing, and most, if not all of you, will recognize the setting as being that of Fisherman's Terminal, but what has been allowed to go black will be up to you to reconstruct. This type of image I believe can be both quite challenging as well as interesting, and I find that I am a bit partial to works of other photographers who employ the technique.  IS0 200; 1/80 sec @ f / 10.
