a truely awesome view...the strong curving shadow in the FG is excellent, and the hazy mountains in the distance are a perfect back drop to that golden ridge. Great composition too, very well done!
Great view over this beautiful valley with wonderful warm colors and light on the rims.
Tha sand stone formations all ook alike and the lines leading the eye perfectly in to the hazy/moody background.
Love the way you did insert the people on the bended line of the rim. They give the viewer a perfect idea how big those sand stone formations really are.
Excellent composition, note and scan work.
Just one question: Since when is it possible to use Fuji Provia 100 slide film together with the Canon 1D MK II :)
Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful sense of depth with good size cues, giving a great sense of scale to this panoramic vista. Very nice layered composition, from the shadowed curve of the FG, to the distant mountain tops kissing that clouded sky.
Hope I haven't "layered" it on too thick ;-)
Very well done!

This is truly wonderful! I love the curving lines, the textures, the colours and the depth of focus. The contrasts from darkness to bright sunshine to haziness in the far distance are fantastic too. Those "little" people brings it all into perspective! I could view this for a long time!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

This Atacama desert must be something fabulous!
Absolutely amazing stone formations. I like the contrasted view with the shadow in the front and the warm light on the landscape.

That is quite an interesting landscape James. The human scale does add to the shot. I like the curve of the foreground and the wonderful texture.
