Liked the composition except for the tree in the foreground. It seems to upset the balance of this shot. I know you can't remove the tree so I won't mark down dramatically. The cliffs are wonderfully textured and colorful and the cactus forms a nice framing.

Been in this area many times, and you captured it quite well. A tad oversharpened.

I would like the image better without the dead tree.
