Yeah I think I could go for one myself if it was a decent price I would like a good mono camera.

I think your photo would benefit from a square crop, not one I use often but it works in this case.

I took a screen shot and cropped as an example:



Just say of you want me to delete this crop.
Thanks I like the crop and its a reason for taking part in proper critque.

Thanks for the comments I appreaciate them
Any changes in composition or foreground are more about timing than anything.

The darker rights side of the is a natural fall off in the light due to the form of the clouds and I decided to leave it.
