This was shot in the Antelope Canyon that is a slot canyon in Arizona just outside of Page Arizona.

This was shot on a tripod without a flash. No PS enhancements other than Contrast correction and very very slight saturation adjustment. The light shaft was made visible by throwing a handfull of sand into the air from the floor of the canyon.

I would love some critique.

I love the photo but might think about renaming the title. Just me.

Second photo in the challenge that I'm almost positive was taken in Utah. Very nice observation. Too bad for basic edit - I think this could have been a stunner with advanced. Going with a 7

Excellent way to capture the beauty of the cave but having the personal flare to make it much more than ordinary.

I'm curious how you achieved such light beam under the basic ruleset.

Antelope canyon? Light casts amazing beams there. Metering looks a bit off on this shot, though.

Wow that's insane. It's light? looks like a waterfall.

Really interesting light

Beautiful image, but the title seems drawn out and obvious to me.
