Not going to pretend the composition is great but the memory of taking the shot was so I decided to post it.

You have rendered a magical place here, Photosam. if you could replace the cars with horses then I could easily accept you shot this 200 years ago.
Samarth: thanks ray, i too dislike the cars in this photo...
Good work with the light, Sam! It seems to be listing a little, though.
Samarth: thanks martin... yup, i noticed that too... is uppose one solution is to prevent it happening altogether but i was wondering if you knew how to remove it once it was there...

I see your reply to Martin - if you have photoshop CS3 there is a lens correction filter which I find very useful for extreme wide angle shots. There is also one on on PE 6.0 but not as powerful.
Samarth: thank you... unfortunately im still with CS2

Composition doesn't have a focal point/plane due to the messy foreground, light/dark shady areas of the middleground, but the background is fine (mustve been hard to preserve clouds in HDR. But a good attempt.
Samarth: thanks
remove the cars and it would be timeless! Cracking shot and processing though
Samarth: thank you phil...
