Shoot it, sketch it

I decided to leave out the big rock in the foreground as it could have looked like an elephant’s bottom! I’m not sure if this has worked as I have now been left with an empty space. My picture is a bit wishy washy and I don’t think that I have quite finished it yet. I keep coming back to it and tweaking but there’s a lot to be said for quitting while you are ahead as there is a real chance that I will just mess and mess with it…
