It's nice, great detail, what part of Sedona is this? I must have missed it when I was there...

It's a big landscape and frankly I'm a little lost as to the focal point is, on the one hand my eye is drawn to the near wall on the left side of the picture which seems to have sunlight hitting it, but I'm also drawn further down to the farthest wall and mountains beyond. I think I would up contrast to darken the canyon floor and highlight the places where the sun is hitting (but then again I think sometimes I overdo the contrast on my own photos).

definitely not the usual Sedona shot (i.e. red mountain, oak creek crossing, etc.)! i wonder what this'd look like as a borizontal crop, with a bit less of that rock in the foreground, which kinda distracts from the rest of the image...

jj,

This is a great photograph reminding me of Caspar David Friedrich, German Romantic landscape painter

I like the orientation. The cliffs offer a place to stand and contemplate. A strong picture. Great
