I loke the recrop and yes it does a good job of strengthening the composition.

I like the use of layers in the image. The dark FG mountians, the mid-toned middle ground and the tall peak BG.

The repost's composition is very good. Love the layers in this scene. I really think a graduated split ND filter on the sky and mountain would have worked very well on this image or shooting an HDR sequence.... Very nice scene..
