Last minute swapout, taken the evening of rollover.

Post challenge notes:
This should teach me to use a last minute edit in a freestudy! Looking at it later on, I think part of the problem is that the central strata of the rock appears to be poorly resized, but in actual fact, that is how the pattern of the rock looks. Only one comment suggesting I should have increased contrast. That's a battle I often fight with myself over my challenge entries. I tend to use less of the eye catching contrast because it often kills a lot of the detail. Came in at an acceptable score however. This will be a good location to keep in mind for future challenges.

Missed the tree challenge? The positioning of the tree works well, perhaps there is a little too much foreground and I am not sure B&W is improving the image...more contrast might work
