Edward, you've definitely made this shot much stronger by cropping tighter on the original. By taking the advice offered previously, this image captures the raw power of mother nature really well. Well done.

Once again, a natural wonder that always grabs my attention.
10/10
Composition
& perspective
Your crop of the previous shot has certainly ensured that attention remains on the red sliver and has resulted in a stronger image. Perspective is still a little too high for me, but by removing some of the foreground, it has helped the total image overall greatly.
9/10
Use of camera,
exposure
& speed
Exposure looks to be spot on, and whilst overhead noonday sun often renders subjects a little bland for my taste, the textures still stand out nicely.

DOF is good - maybe shallower will help with the lava sliver standing out even more.

Color &
Lighting
Again, your colour balance is great, but the lighting could be improved by shooting earlier or later in the day. By doing so, textures and form will be stronger.

Focus
As a tighter crop I can see that the lava seems to be slightly soft.

How to improve your photo
1.
Compare the two images and I'm sure you will see that subtle changes to an image, can be just a powerful as huge ones.
2.
Focus & DOF are paramount to great images - make sure you get these right every time and half the battle to make a great image is won.
3.
Bracket your shots - experiment with DOF, focus and apertures. You'll be surprised how any, or all, of these can make a good shot, great.
