The sky is a bit to dark for my liking, were you using a polarizer? The stubs are bit over done. It actually takes away form the shot I think. The balance is good with the sky and subject matter.

What do you mean by 'stubs' and 'over done'? Curious.

Thanks for the feedback so far.

typo shrubs. They take away form the splendor of the vista.

The image has a weird feel to it, especially the colors and the sky. Bad post-processing most likely.
Framing isn't exactly ideal either.

I like the shot, might play with the PP some (may or may not help) the picture. For me and maybe because of growing up in and around deserts in California the shrubs don't bother me because they are always around.

I can't think of anything I would change. Very nice photo.
