Taken at Lower Antelope Canyon in Arizona. This is my first time there with a real camera. The last time I visited (years ago) I had only a point and shoot film camera and didn't understand shutter speeds, aperture or why not to use flash. Anyway - here is one of my favorite shots, I hope you like it too!

PP: Slight adjustments to:
Levels, color balance, saturation and contrast

Post Challenge: Thank you to everyone for your votes and comments! I am humbled and honored to be in the top 10 with so many other great shots in this challenge.

You can see the rest of the photos from that trip here:

Hey, I was there this summer! Nice job, and congrats on a good finish. I'll have to go back through my shots and see if I can identify this spot. :) Were you on one of the "rush" tours, or were you there for the photographer's extended tour? We went on the regular tour, and I was a little frustrated at being rushed through.

This was my first choice for this challenge! You really captured this well. Then again, it's almost impossible to take a bad picture in Antelope Canyon.

I never get tired of these over photographed forms, and you did a great job with the composition and exposure, Super tones and color. Bumping up.

I love this place and have been wanting to go here for years. The colors you have captured are excellent, the lighting, wonderful. So much depth, dimension, and texture. Very well done. POV to get the most out of the shapes. You thought of everything! 9 - good luck in the challenge!

Wonderful shot of the sandstones, David Meunch like. Nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2005 08:14:52 PM
I have seen many photos of this place, but I never get sick of it. You captured (or created) yet another hue, and you did well with what I imagine is probably a bit of an exposure challenge. 9

A classic shot, works well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2005 11:30:40 AM
Great textures and exposer. The cropping leaves a real confined feeling to the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2005 09:14:04 AM
The abstractness of this is very artfully captured. It looks like something Georgio O'Keefe would have painted during her time in the desert southwest. I love the tonal variations and the complementary orange and purple. The shadow and light is superb. The striations of the rock are very interesting and serve as leading lines to send your eye back and forth across the image. Great perspective too. You took a beautiful work of nature and captured it in an extraordinary way! WOW

The return of an old favourite, this capture has a feeling of silk billowing in the wind.

The capture of the wall textures is beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2005 01:55:54 AM
Good textures and colors here, perspective too. Gives me a lot to look at and imagine, which in this case is a good thing. I see hearts, snake heads, chocloate, its definately an interesting iage, well done. 9

Magnificent and the colours are so well captured. Great contrasting tones as well. Spot-on for the title. Bumping it up - 10.

12/01/2005 04:25:23 PM
7 - Very nice. Criticism; colors are nice but look like they have been 'tweaked' a fraction too much (apologies if wrong). Good capture of what appears to be a type of cavern/cave, at least that is what it looks like from this angle. Like to see more detail in the texture of the very fore wall/rock, but that might be difficult to still be able to retain the focus where you have it as is, so who knows. This at wall size, the frame might suit, but in my opinion, at this size, it detracts, especially being so thick.

12/01/2005 03:38:08 PM
Wow, is all I can say. Love your use of light to bring out the texture of the rocks and its different layers.

The best one of the challenge! I'd love to visit this place sometimes. I've seen enough of the photos of it, it is time for me to try to match them.
Bumping up!
