-M- iso 125 - f/11 - 50 mm

Taken from a higher vantage point from atop a crater. Too many distractions on either side so this was the best angle I could find to isolate the mountain. Any longer zoom lens lost the window. After several attempts I chose this.

Better to view here

Thank you for taking a look & suggestions.

What a wonderful idea, AnnaMaria. Trimming the blue sky off of the top would make the brick frame more prominent. The mountain and clouds look terrific. Very nicely done!

Really a great idea how to turn a nice shot into a very interesting image. I'm not sure how it would look with the sky cut off above the top of the wall but it may be worth taking a look. If not for the slight angle I would definitely be for cutting the top off. In any event this is a terrific job of seeing things out of the box and getting a very nice result.

Thankyou AnnaMaria, and Alan.  much appreciated. :) 

Personally, I like your image as posted - it shows you are looking through an actual 'window' .  If you cut off the sky. it could just be one of those added photoshop picture frames.   My 2 cents worth.

Interesting view- quite unique! I don't mind the sky at the top, but it is a bit puzzling until you know the context. The mountains are quite something!

Thanks all for your comments/suggestions. I did try a crop and it did look like a generic border from PS. I think the sky adds to the abstract look.
