Very nice!

Toning seems like a LensWork recipe? Might work well in print, but I prefer something slightly less reddish.

I have to say that the composition doesn't work very well for me,
What I mean is that the tree looks too big for me and it frustrates my exploration of the background by obstructing certain features (like the "end" of the left clift and the upper part of the right river).

But, again, it's probably just my personal interests that are getting in the way.

Nice one Jeremy.  There is a bit of tension between the foreground and background but for this shot, it works.

+1. I agree with Erik and stamper. I like the tension, and the tree with all its twisted branches is a real treat.

Thanks, all. Well spotted, Slobodan: it is indeed lensworks' toning recipe. Normally I find it too much but it seemed to work here, where everything is actually pretty red.

I want to go back to Dead Horse Point. I barely even scratched the surface of its potential, and the light wasn't brilliant when I was there, after watching sunrise at Mesa Arch.
