Interesting. The overexposed, contrasty rocks and vivid colours give this photo a real sense of drama. It mostly works... it just seems a tiny bit overdone. Too garish.

Looks like a good climb, so maybe not untouched, but I get the idea. Funny colors in the picture, though.

The sky is a very pretty blue. The rock though is strange to me. I am not so sure I like the very very dark shadow in the center of the photo. There really isn't anything to help us judge size on these either. I know with nature objects, it's often difficult to do that though. The colors in the shot are nice. Focus and clarity seem good too. Good luck in the challenge.

The orange colors look to me as though they were brought out a little unnaturally far, but it's a neat shot with quite a sky :)

I have problems with the coloration: the rock looks like it's bleeding.
I like the strong contrast of the left rock from its sunny side to the dark side.

I really like this. Interesting composition and textures. I love pushing colors in photos...but i think you may have gone a tad far with the blue here. Maybe you could post the original after Sunday..I'd love to see the unaltered image :)

I can't imagine that this rock is naturally this red. The sky looks artificial too. Really interesting rock formation but I would have liked a more natural look, especially for this challenge.

Cool coloration, were the rocks really THIS red? Strong blue sky! 8 Swash

Strange rock formation..Interesting. Is that iron the red? Cool shot. Nice work.

Way too much colour for my taste.

the colors look really enhanced in this shot, they seem really unnatural to me.
