Now, about those halos... :P Really an interesting landscape and the details are very sharp.

It was not sharpening that caused the halo nor was the image over processed it was a bad mask and a rushed edit...

Interesting landscape, however there are halos around the rocks and the top of the cactus (over processed). Also, a lower point of view I think would work better as it would set the cactus against the sky rather than against the ground which has a similar colour.

Nice composition, but IMHO the halo distracts...

You know you've looked at a picture too long when you can see shapes in the clouds! I see a cactus. Very nice image!

Nice desert image with vivid colors. The halo around the edge of the cliffs is distracting. I use large feather readius to get rid of halos like this when I selectivly edit the sky in my pictures. Otherwise you could clone them out but thats hard work.

great texture
did you use sharp mask?

The detail in your picture is superb. edited unnecessary verbosityThis picture would be excellent in a large print to retain more detail than 720 can show.

Sooo pretty. I wish the halos weren't around the top of the rocks and cactus (probably from sharpening), but everything else about this is great. It is a beautiful scene.

Nice location but a touch too much sky. I bet it would look good in b/w. I think there is a halo around the rock, perhaps due to sharpening?

I like this image. Nice depth/shadows and colour. Good Luck. 7.

Nice landscape, and cool sky. However, I can see signs of oversharpening, and the cactus sort of blends into the hills and makes the scene look quite busy and crowded.

my first impression was it looks a little over-sharpened, most noticeable on the top of the rocks. It's a great sky tho, i love the soft clouds and the composition is generally good

Very nice and natural.

I think this should score really well, it is from me anyway. 10

the halos between the sky and the rest of the photo show that a bit of work has been done here. I still like it though...but minus 1 for the halos. 6 from me.
