Slot canyons are amazing things:)

I like your capture here, with the photographers in it... their presence really helps show the scale of the walls.

Now that is cool. You should go back (without the other photographers) and bring a beautiful woman dressed in flowing white robes to stand in the light.

I've GOT to see this place someday! Having the photographers there adds to it, yet it is lovely without anyone in it at times. What time was that taken at?

Lovely, lovely...

Congratulations on this super image from Antelope Canyon. Yours is the classic "light ray" view. You beat out my good friend Tina Faust's Antelope Canyon image by a placing. Both are great pictures.

Love this one. My favorite so far. 10.

Beautiful. Colors are wonderful, composition is just right. I love that beam of light and all the photogs huddled around it, yet you still have the sense of how huge and grand the space is.

A great photo that would have been incredible had the photographers not been in the frame. Great work.

Definitely a new twist on this oft-shot spot (say that three times fast...). Very nice.

Excellent control of light and saturation, perfect focus and composition.
One of my hopeful destinations.

Wow that is REALLY cool. In this case, I almost like the photographers in the picture, it adds something I think. This one will defintely be near the top, and is probably the best so far out of 400. :) You get a 9. :)

My favorite so far. I'm at 40% down. 9 for now, subject to bumping:)

Edit, 100% done and this is one of the most interesting shots here. I mean really, how about a slot canyon with some people!!! Very cool. Up to a 10 and good luck!

Fantastic subject (your featuring the others makes the shot). What an amazing piece of geography this is - you're lucky to behold it.

I'd skip photogs in the photograph any day, but at this location especially. Maybe a person in native garb bathed in light, but clash between art and journalistic type shot here doesn't really work for me. I would have scored this an 8-9 without them, or a 10 with a person under the shaft of light, native or not, if they just weren't holding a camera. 7 though

Yah, this place is *way* over-shot. Having a bunch of photographers in the photo is creative though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2006 02:24:59 PM
Wonderful image. I have seen many like it over the years and I'm always appreciative when they are well done. You've gone a step beyond by showing the photographers. At this site and for this audience, I believe it was a brilliant compositional move. Firstly it lends a sense of scale to the photo which is rarely done. Secondly, it adds some life to the photo. Among my top picks.

Seems I've seen hundreds of shots of this canyon, but this is the first with th e photographers taking the shot. I like.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 08:45:08 PM
I love the colours in this photo, but I actually think the 'shooters' take away from the emotion. Still, great photo. 8

Very very cool. Too bad you couldn't get one without all them in it though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Amazing photo. Great change from all the other slot canyon photos I've seen out there, a new perspective. The beam of light is excellent, and the photographers right on the thirds line add a really good sense of scale. I don't think a slot canyon photo has ever won on DPC before... could this be the first? I wouldn't be surprised :) 10

bet they were pissed at you for being in their picture. ;) well taken. the people add a sense of life and scale.

01/16/2006 12:39:02 AM
Truly strange image. In a sense I feel almost "offended" that you've included the other photographers in this pristine environment, but I'm also intrigued by it. Beautifully exposed/rendered.

Wow this is amazing the color is so rich. Will we see one of you in the challenge?
