    One of the most stunning sights to behold near the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell. Standing on top of a several hundred foot cliff with no guard rail you peer over the edge of this natural wonder. I'm open to comments / suggestions. This is my 1st post (hopefully the links work)

    One of the problems of taking pictures at famous spots is that it's waaay too easy for us to try & compare them to the "pro" shots we've seen of the same spot.
    Your pictures look "OK" to me - the most interesting one is the last, which is different from the norm, and the tiny boat takes a sec to jump up at you..:)

    The second one, of course, goes into the "see, I really was there" snapshot book..:)

    Nice shot... I hope that you took many while you were there..........:thumbup:

    Using a ulra-wide introduces distortion along the horizon... many post software will have a method to straighten that out some...

    I enjoy going to famous spots and taking the "traditional" shots... There is a reason why those shots are taken...it's spectacular..

    I have no issues with hanging a shot on my wall of a traditional view that I took myself............ keep it up............:D

    (now, I might not have posted one with my shadow in it..........:sexywink: )

    Thanks for the feedback. You're right...you can enjoy your own photo of a landmark that's been captured a million times. I included the shadow image for fun - you can see I was standing a few feet from huge cliff (there wasn't a shadow when I was laying down peering over the edge of the chasm!)
