I like this one a lot! It has a dramatic composition and the wide-angle view is terriffic. One of the few landscapes I have seen which works in the portrait format.

There is one thing though.

I feel the somewhat overdone clouds are competing for attention with the very special and well exposed foreground of boulders. Besides the clouds did not come out very good anyway. The dense ones are too dark (Photomatix...?) and there is this big hole of total blown sky where the sun is, which takles away most of the merits of this otherwise good picture. With all this in mind I would like to suggest a rather brutal cut of sky from the top down to almost 1" above the horizon.


Something like this....

In my opinion this would be a far better composition as well, because the lead-in of the boulders is more pronounced and is not overpowered by the very hefty sky and clouds.

I apaologize if I am out of line and I will delet my edit if you don't like it - my intentions are only to help!

Best regards,
Walter
