Nice composition. I like the leading lines to the rock formation. It really draws you eyes to that rock.

That pretty much says it all and don't know that I could add anything further. Must have been a wonderful trip and I'd like to see more of it.

What asnow said for sure. I'm liking the big dof on this. When you look at the detail in the rock at the bottom of the pic and then follow those lines up its quite an effect!

Thanks for the comments! - Used a very small aperture on this one and focused 1/3rd of the way in just as an fyi.

Beautiful Marko. Those lines just draw the eye in to the background so well. Hard to look away from this one. Quite mesmerizing.

I feel it is just a little overexposed don't you think?

Thanks again for the comments! I think this image could be refined even further might upload a different version.
Overexposed ewaizel?....not on my monitor.

Beautiful image, Marko. Besides the lovely leading lines, as everyone's mentioned, I also really like the soft, cottony texture of the clouds. It adds a nice contrast to the hard lines in the rocks and this results, I think in a much stronger image than if it had been a cloudless sky.

Hmmm...everything looks spot on to me.
