Misty Mountains 

Interesting what a bit of judicious cropping can do. This photo, dating from a trip to Scotland a couple of years ago, is nothing special but happens to be one of the hundreds that cycles through my screensaver, courtesy of Webshots.

I must have seen it dozens of times but passed over it as holding little of interest. But then it occured to me: what if I home in on just that centre section?

It's still not exactly stunning, but cropping creates a more interesting, pleasing, meaningful result, don't you think, with the foreground ridge leading the eye on into the distance?
