Dusk over the Pindus Mountains. Who said that 300/2.8 prime lenses can't be used for landscapes, I didn't have a tripod and so took this handheld, which would not have been possible without the f/2.8 aperture. It came out rather sharp as well because of the stabilizer, technique, and obviously the lens is no slacker either. The light in the top right corner is actually a distant town in the mountains, I am not one to really remove stuff, so just left them there.

Hi Dvir.. Nice layers and diagonals.. the village lights don't bother me.. use my 500 for landscapes occasionally... good for compressing distance into a frame..

I really like the misty layers of this image...it just works! The lights are noticeable, but not enough to worry about, if it is not your thing to remove them...I myself would, but it is your vision/image and as I said before...it works!

I really like the layers created by the lines and colors of the image a very strong graphic image.

Hi Dvir, nicely arranged layers and I love the touch of pink in the sky. Nice work!
