    A picture I took of the lighthouse formation in Palo Duro Canyon a couple of weeks ago, just south of Amarillo, TX.

    compositionally this is a fantastic shot, however you could up the contrast a bit and chosen a bigger DOF or at least got the focus somewhere the viewer could see. nice.

    I like the composition for the most part, though the top of the tree does blend into the rock a bit. Other than that, maybe a bit more contrast like the previous poster said, but great shot!

    I agree. Also, along the right edge, bottom half, there are some leaves creeping in that aren't really "in" the picture - they are slightly distracting from the central focus and I would clone them out.

    Ok, thanks for the tips :) Still working on my techniques a bit, so any critiques are more than welcome.

    I've cloned out the leaves in the bottom corner, as well as bumped up the contrast a little:

    As far as DOF, not sure if there's really anything I can do there post processing, but willing to learn if there is...
