Wow! Do you sell prints ?
One question - are the mesa edges that light ? The remind me a bit of the hoodoos in  Bryce.

Yes, the mesa edges are that light.  :)

Very nice, I particularly like the composition here, close detailed foreground leads you into that wonderful scene, the colours the light.....all works very well, good work mate.

A lovely fluid composition with nice light. It seems a bit flat, but I think that is a result of my uncalibrated monitor. Very nice work.

Great image, but can I be boring and ask tech details? It all looks so sharp, how did you go about it?

Thanks,
Michael

One of the most original compositions I've seen from GRO and one I really like.  Well composed, nicely processed - this is a fantastic image!

Sunset from Green River Overlook.

Stunning shot, makes me want to go there immediately and have a go myslef, I love it. You know it takes quite some determination and skill to go to a place so well visited and photographed, yet still come away with an absolute winner - bravo!

Great composition and from an ideal vantage point. Just one niggly - this being sunset and all - the foreground seems to bright and lacking in contrast. In particular the grain/bark of the foreground tree looks washed out. While I realize you might very well be working towards a certain effect, it appears (to me anyway) to be not quite "real" in an image where it appears you are working towards realism. However, at the same time, I appear to be in the minority (or are we, as a forum, shying away from constructive criticism?)
