    Location: Salisbury Pass, Death Valley National Park. Artifactual evidence indicates these caves were used as hunting ambush/blinds by indigenous peoples as far back as approximately 9,000 years ago.

    Three comments:
    The pic is hurt by the tip of the peak being cut off,
    The shot seems over-red (even the rock has a red tint)
    This would look great in a b&w

    The saturation is a bit high perhaps and the peak cutoff, the tones are fantastic, the detail in the shadow is just right and the highlights are spot on

    Except for the cut off peak, I like the composition (take a quick glance at it, it's almost all triangles!)

    I like the saturated colors, but there is something "off" about the greens...did you use a circular polarizer for this shot?

    I have seen rocks being that red just from the sun ... not sure about that place though.

    However, the tip being cut off is a bit of a pain, I agree.

    Drat. I was hoping the tip of the rock being beyond the shot would make it like -art- or something. Guess not. Went just a little overboard on the red also I suppose.

    Thanks all. :) I appreciate the comments.

    Agree with the rest. this pic needs the tip more than the foreground. I would also mute the sky using selective coluring or so. But has lots of potential. If this is cropped find the original and repost please
