Wow top 40 in a free study!

Any way...this was shot in RAW and I combined 3 different exposures of the same pic to get the sky, fore mountains and then the ones in the middle correct. Then it I adjusted hue/sat levels and a few more basic adjustments plus NI...oh and I added that ugly border, which surprisingly no one commented about.

You've captured the dappledness of the light very well.

Beautiful colours, such a surreal scene. Seems a tad washed out near the horizon.

Very nice. I love the wondering lines thoughout the frame. Personally, I would have liked a bit more contrast, but the effect in your photo is great as we.. -7-

I've stood in this same spot many times and have taken very similar photos. This is where I've seen the Condors flying. You're facing northeast - away from the sunset but yes, I can tell by the shadows it certainly is towards the end of the day according to the shadows. I'm wondering if while you were at Yavapai Point, you had a chance to watch the the clouds turn red? When the challenge is over I'll have to come back to see if you've got a portfolio and check for more photos. Good job on this one and good luck to ya!

Impressive wide-angle, with good detail on the canyon walls. Nice.

This is hard to photograph with any definition.
You did a great job on this and presented us with a view and feel seldom seen.

a different take, thats for sure. I like it, though the tree is a bit of a distraction.

Nice view, the image looks overprocessed though. Tone mapped ?

You were there on a good day! This must be a popular spot it seems like deja Vu but I 've never been there. Like the tree too.Excellent color. My only nit is the oversharpening.

Dramatic area, but I feel there is a lot lost in this image. hazyness, contrast issues. that lone tree is a distraction.
