I'm with you here, Randy... if you're gonna diss a picture, at least
explain why, or don't waste your time.
Personally, I see that this has the potential to be a really nice shot
(not great, but nice): the sky is beautiful and the crane silhouettes
are striking. It needs some cropping though - I'd take out most of the
water at the bottom, and the water itself is too rippled to provide an
interesting reflection. Maybe cut it straight across from about the
bottom of the land shadow on the right.
The other problem is that it's WAY over-sharpened, particularly
noticeable in the "jaggies" in the crane booms, and the haloed edges of
the clouds. Bob, if you want to make some adjustments and post it up
again, I'd like to take another look :)
