Commenters ragged on this photo about the color. Have you been here? Well then..shut up! Check out the PBS Series of 'Equi-trackers' and an episode that was filmed in Jordan. Yep, same kind of colors. Now, get lost!

We've just visited New Mexico. In some of my photos, the sky is a ridiculous blue (that's how it really looked), and a couple of other colors appeared "overcooked", too.

In those cases, I do lower the saturation a tiny bit, even if that is less "real", but it makes a better photo (IMHO).

Great subject, but lacks sharpeness and clarity. Shooting closer to sunrise/sunset might have given you something more dramatic.

Lovely photo. I don't think the border helps it.

I like the softness of the rocks and clouds, which gives it a painting like effect. The tire tracks in the foreground are not as pretty as the rest of the scenary and detract a bit. Perhaps a crop removing the bottom 40% would emphasis the upper part.

very pretty scenery but, I think it's a little oversaturated in reds???

I've been here and I think this is a bit over saturated.

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this would be one of those magic pictures. The color is great but the contrast and clarity kind of vanishes for me, I love the location and the shot, but wish it had more depth of field

That sand is redder than a lip stick - a tad too much
