I like the image and the cottonwood, but the colors seem off to me. maybe try a tripod to have the camera be stable and get better sharpness. It does have a nice painterly feel.

beautiful!

nice image, but almost too cartoony

cool photo and Zion is a beautiful park. I do feel that the PP on this gives this a bit of a cartoon look or a bit over processed feel. Still a nice shot and fit the challenge well.

Really pretty scenery! Love your composition and colors. Looks like a postcard!

Though a little over-saturated and over-sharpened for my tastes, a fine image. Beautiful panorama. 6

I like landscapes. Shooting lower to frame the tree's color against the mountains or even sky could've helped with color contrast.

This would be so pretty if it weren't totally overprocessed. Too much saturation and USM.

Not sure about the processing on this shot. The colors and composition are lovely, but the image seems very flat.

The overpowering colors are... FREAKING ME OUT. :) For some reason it reminds me of the TV show Bonanza when they started filming it in color. Don't mark this as helpful, cuz it's not. Would enjoy seeing the original after the challenge. Good luck.
