#3 for me as well. I like the sky as well but the foreground doesn't have enough detail.

How about something like this? The earth layer has been lightened, particularly the earth area. The sky has had the yellow removed and smoothed with denoise.

On such landscapes, time of day/position of Sun is critical.
Removing something is quite easy with PP- but putting in something that was never there is not....!
But not a bad effort Bynx...

Great looking PP work Bynx. If you ever get down my way Bynx I'll have to hold you hostage for a few days in front of the computer.

4 and get rid of some of the sky, way to much it detracts form the canyon imho. Like the color pop form the editing, 3 has just to much pop in the colors.

The "None of the above" option is missing from the poll...

Hmm thanks Bynx... it is a nice job bringing out the canyon... but this kinda misses the whole point of the shot that makes it interesting to me, which is the shadows and bright spots being cast by the sun and clouds. The spots being illuminated by the sun just look like redder rock next to the rest of the brightened canyon wall.

I have many shots of the canyon from sunrise to sunset and in between with excellent detail.... However they don't display the drama I felt was in this shot, that drama being drawn from the play of the big sky with clouds and the canyon with sunlight illuminating certain objects.

Well thanks everyone for your participation, except Marawder who gets none of the above

In the end I sending number 3 to print, both cropped (sky and some side) and full.
