I would say that it looks flat because of lack of contrast to me. Upping the contrast a bit might give it more depth. It all looks in the 50% gray area to me. Nothing closer to white or black.

That it is. We were driving out that way to do some hiking when we visited Arizona last fall. On the way, I liked the view so I pulled off the road at the intersection to snap a few photos.

Da* 50-135

I'm good with what anyone else decides. Maybe we contribute 2 shots for each contest. Two brackets. One can be an "all time" shot, the other within the month or 90 days and vote on our favorites...

I hiked that trail in October on a trip to AZ. It was in the mid 90's and it felt so much warmer to an Ohio guy like me. I can't even imagine that area seeing even a dusting of snow! So crazy!

Thanks everyone for the votes.

Since it's December and the challenge ends at the end of the month, I'd say it's as good a time as any to see your best photo of the year!
