Thanks for your comment, I appreciate a lot the time and effort you put into it :)
I see what you mean about the contrast. The original photo has more detail in the white and black bits, could this loss of detail be due to resizing?
As to the focus on the rocky mountain top: that IS the city of Calascibetta spreading from the top down to the left and a bit to the front. But I have to agree that with the resolution on treklens it is hardly visible :(
Maybe i'll make a crop of it for you :)
thanks again for your kind comments!
