    Stats: ISO100, 28mm 1/160sec Question:How would you edit this photo? What would you keep? Crop out? Would you change the highlights, shadows? Whites, blacks? Change the exposure? This photo is unedited (only corrected the horizon) and I a curious to hear how other people would approach this photo. Thanks for the comments, feedback, and discussion!

    I think it is darned good as it is. There might be another shot from half the distance to the people and over to the right and squatting down so they are more silhouetted against the brighter part of the sky and they'd be larger and more of the subject.

    I just uploaded a similar shot that shows a bit of what I mean.

    Hey, I saw those two, how come I didn't shoot them. Question: when uploading a pic, does the EXIF info come with it or is it stripped out?

    I agree, composition is good as it is. Despite the people being smallish they're not too small, they're still very noticeable. And the sky, as beautiful as it is, does not compete with them because it is not overly dramatic. An exceptionally striking sky might have called for the couple to be omitted (or PS'd out), but in this case it's all good. One small quibble - the sky around the couple and on the right end might benefit from a little bit of lightening. Only a little bit, though.
