There really isn't much I can say about this shot. It's simple and lovely.
The DOF really works here in my opinion. I like how the focus is in the front and on the orange stone, and how the backgroud is just that. Background. Nothing distracting in the background, and it's blurred nicely.
The lighting is really excellent. I think that is what makes this photo for me. There is shadow on the 'dull' rocks, and then the orange stone just jumps out and says 'hey, look at me'. I like the little reflection of the sun in the orange stone as well. The small patches of light throughout the shot are really nice.
Focus on the stone is excellent. Nice clarity and detail in the stones. I like how we can see the texture in the rocks.
I see nothing that i'd like to see differently here. It's a great shot.

I like the colours here, maybe try a crop of some of the top stones...there seems to be a bit too much background to really keep attention on the big orange rock. :)

I like the how the muted colors in the photo really make the orange stone stand out. Great focus.

Very nice image. I find it calming and wise. It seems like you might have editted this stone, but I hope not and I'm not going to recommend you for dq or anything. It's a great image. 9

Well seen. An effective shot. I wonder if it would be more effective with greater DOF in the background?
