A stunning place, I always love looking at photos of it.
You did a wonderful job on all of them, but I particularly appreciate having ONE in that series (your ribbon shot) that includes a person. Without that, it would have been impossible to judge the scale.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 10:36:08 AM
Just knew this would be a winner!!! Outstanding and you certainly didn't need to wrestle the 10 out from me (which I don't usually give easily). Most deserving :).

Hehe, this place seems to be to you americans what northern lights are to us Icelanders, almost a guaranteed ribbon or top 10 shot! Love that location so I am not at all surprised, I definately want to go there someday, for now I am just glad people like you are able to capture the beauty there for those of us that aren´t able to go there ourselves. Nice work!

Fantastic light, and lovely colors! I love all photos I've seen from these caves! Did you have a good trip up here? Great capture, and a ribbon winning one for sure! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 05:34:37 PM
Beautiful textures. Is she red from color tweaking, or from the red stones surrounding her?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 04:33:42 PM
Wow. Beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 01:35:44 PM
I know you tried to convey the person was framed, but I think this shot would look so much better without her. It's gorgeous, anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 08:17:03 AM
shouldn't have had the girl in it. shes too far down and to small to be anything but distraction
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2006 10:28:31 PM
Beautiful place! Where is it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2006 05:59:03 PM
OOPS yet another shot that i think could win...
10 from me.
I have found 4 outstanding images in this challenge, and this is one of them.
I have to give them all a ten as i can't choose between them

Good luck

Kev

Returning just for another look as i love it.
Decided that this should win. So there that's decided, pick up your blue ribbon.
:)

Actually, if this was taken in the Page, Arizona area it would be Navajo Limestone, I believe. Nice colors, good lighting and a perspective you don't often see in a slot canyon image. Perhaps this is Lower Antelope Canyon? Looks a bit oversaturated red to me but it is always hard to tell with these lower light level shots. I really like slot canyon photography. I have some upper antelope canyon images here:

06/18/2006 06:04:19 AM
very nice. I wish the lady wasn't in the shot though, I find it takes away from the rest of it. In my opinion. -7 (8 with the change)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2006 05:41:11 AM
wow, where does this colour come from. Is it natural red?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2006 02:28:23 AM

Really nice colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2006 01:20:35 PM
I hate you guys that live near stuff like this :P but anyway excellent shot. It is a non-traditional shot with the subject being so small but it really helps give one a prespetive of the size of the cavern. (10)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2006 01:15:20 PM
Strong lines working this photo! This slot canyon really minimalizes your subject. Nice work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2006 05:58:13 AM
Good frame but subject is a little small in relation to the frame.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2006 01:05:13 AM
Amazing!

06/15/2006 09:36:05 PM
Magnificent place, a photographer's dream. You should do well in the rankings with this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 06:52:16 PM
almost completely missed the person in the foreground- i like how having something recongnizeble makes the colors seem more legit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 06:32:13 PM
amazing shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 03:06:39 PM
Nice composition and impresionantes colors. From my point of view, the framed model is too small.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 11:05:40 AM
Wow!

It could be discussed whether challenge is fulfilled:

Details: Capture an image where the foreground subject frames the rest of the image.

But it is some kind of framing in the foreground, enough for a nine from here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 10:58:39 AM
Wow - incredible colours and dimensions! Where is this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/15/2006 08:44:07 AM

06/14/2006 03:57:19 PM
Lovely take on an oft-photographed location. I really like the way you've created the framing. Her purple clothing works well - although she's tiny within the frame the colour subtly pulls the eye towards her after it's initially wowed by the reds of the sandstone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2006 11:01:31 AM
this is a very amazing picture.. the rocks shape and their color are very captivating, still i dont think they draw the eye to the model..a good shot nontheless
06/14/2006 09:56:51 AM
wow1 Love this one. The colors- holy cow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2006 08:45:06 AM
Terrific. Maybe a tighter shot would really show frame. And looking down
would have been effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2006 06:24:14 AM
excellent for this challenge, good luck

06/14/2006 04:16:32 AM
Incredible. The colours are absolutely breathtaking. And the lines and curves are so well defined. A winner.

06/14/2006 02:48:25 AM
beautiful image which would have benefitted from her not being in the shot as it looks like she just happened to be there.
