"The Wave", Northern Arizona (just over the Utah border) in the Vermillion Cliffs region.

Taken from the JPG with in-camera settings of High Saturation and Sharp Contrast (Landscape settings), the image had very little PP and would fit in a Basic editing challenge. Levels, B/C, Selective Color, Size Image, Sharpen, Save for Web

I love the combination of detail and big picture. It really shows the depth of blue of the sky as it was that day, and the incredible colors of the area.

Predicted score: 6.3
Dream score 6.8

This is a gorgeous image with great perspective and lines. Captures the feel of The Wave exceptionally well.

This is nitpicking but "The Wave" is actually in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument just over into the Arizona side of the border. The expansive Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is next door on the Utah side of the border.

Nice composition. It would be cool to see the original image. Could you post it? I am just curious about how much was composed in the camera versus cropping.

When this image popped up on the screen I just kind of gasped. I can only imagine the fun you had getting images in a place that looks like this. The movement of the lines and angles is just wonderful, and the composition you chose certainly works for me.
