Fire in the Sky Dscf2510

Fire in the Sky Dscf2511

The mountain is Pikes Peak in Colorado. This shot was taken from my driveway.
I use the editor in Picasa2 to darkened the shadows to create a silhouette in the first image and an effect they call Focal B&W for the second.

Both are very good pics John.

I would crop about 3/4 of the bottom off to lose most of the silhouette. Very Happy

Would you leave the pictures the same width or maintain the aspect ratio?

Leave the same width.

Too many people worry about getting the 3:2 ratio instead of producing a great picture.

When printing just make sure the image is centred. Very Happy

Fire in the Sky Dscf2512

I cropped the top as well as the bottom, just seemed needed to balance the picture.

Yes, hipster. I live in the Springs.

That is better, you casn see how the sky is the dominant feature now and not the big black nothingness at the bottom. Very Happy

Love the edit - brings out the colour and it's better balanced now. Super capture ~ John
