    thanks

    I rotated it 90 degrees clockwise and the photogrammetry part of my brain was much happier with the result.

    It is a great picture in that the original really makes me uneasy and feel like I am falling forward.

    It's more along the lines of could you find a vantage point where you could get just a bit lower so as to capture the base of the tree (and some grass underneath). Landscape shots are often enhanced by a clean, unbroken, uniform base along the bottom edge. There may have been more stuff below that you didn't want included.

    It's really weird that there was just this lone young tree sitting there. I was at the top of a hill. I tried cropping the image so you could just see the top half of the trees, focusing on the 'Close Encounters' clouds but it just didn't feel right. At the bottom of the image, just beyond that tree there is a dirt road and a bunch of boulders dumped along side it. I didn't like the look of them either, so I tried to find a happy medium.

    That really was the best vantage point, unless I climbed a tree, and I ain't doing that at I my age :-)

    Don't want this image to get lost in other discussions ... is that with your phone?

    No. DSLR (Nikon D7200) with some post processing to bring out the moon. The Mesa is about 30 miles from where I took the shot. Mt Garfield, in the lower left corner is about 20 miles.

    Didn't think it was with a phone. The sky and moon is lovely ... have you tried to pull out the details below in the Mesa?

    Sunset from tonight.
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf
