I like this shot, but it needs something. What would make this a marketable photo? Go B&W & soften the edges? Toss it? I don't know.

I don't think you have a chance with this in terms of marketing. Why.. ? The exposure is to far of. You have found a good location and your composition is fine. You technique has let you down. You need to bracket a shot like this to properly expose the bright and the dark areas. Use a tripod and blend using layers in PS. Use of ND filters or maybe a polarizer to bring up the foliage saturation may have helped also

Best I could do with time at hand.

I think I've overdone this, but you get the idea.

Awsome! This shot was actually taken around '2000 with an HP 3.5. One of the few shots I kept from way back then. Not bad for a dinasoar.

I think if you can reshoot it, it might be worth a try, but who knows if you can get the same lighting etc. There's lots of things you can do to play with this, I really like the picture as it is, but it has a lot of potential...best regards,

Quick remark in my edit. Tho it's a very nice picture, I doubt it would be commercial material. The market is saturated with so many mind blowing photos already, IMO it seems you really have to hit one clean out of the park, just to get noticed. Still, you're on the right track...
