Thanks Richard! It was a beautiful scene with lots of brilliant colours. Hires mode allowed me to crop enough to find the picture within the picture. It's like turning that 12-100 into a 24-200. I like what some folks did with putting drama into that sky. Lots of great entries as always.
As BossBe said a couple of weeks ago, now I actually have to find something for next competition I'll do that later today.
As for the compositing rule, I'll include it in the blurb. If we find we don't like it, then it can be changed.
