Hi Pierre. The scene here is majestic. The foreground is well coloured, but the top portion is overexposed and may be cropped to reduce the glare. Maybe good to repost after trimming the top. TFS. Murray.

Hello Pierre,
This is a fine composition, with a stunning feeling of depth!
Amazing view to Colorado river...
And I wish a HAPPY NEW YEAR will come your way!
Seasonal greetings from Norway,

Hello Pierre

I really like this composition.The foreground is interesting and acts like a gateway to the most amazing view in the background.
The colours are wonderful.I was amused to read that you scanned this from a damaged negative because the restoration process is wonderful.
The POV is fantastic.
Great job.


Best wishes and Happy Hunting in 2008!

I like the colors, Pierre, and you do a fine job conveying some of the vast depth and sense of scale. I realize there are limitations from the scan, as well, though it does seems the saturation of color, especially in the background, is off. I'd also suggest you crop off the top inch or so because there's no real detail or value in that sky. I'd suggest some sharpening, too. Looks as though you had a wonderful trip. I'm glad you took us along for this part. I think Murray's workshop really improves this nicely.


Bonjour Pierre,
Il semble qu j'ia manqué celle-ci. J'aime bien les couleurs de ce ciel, la composition, prise de vue ainsi que la maitrise de l'exposition. Merci,
