    I took this one Saturday at Garden of The Gods. I passed it the first time and the angle and lighting struck me so I went the rest of the 2 miles back around the loop and stopped in the road and took this out of the car window. I did almost no cropping and very little clean up in PS.

    Beautiful contrasting colors on a similar diagonal. Very nicely done. I might beef up the contrast a bit or compress the histogram to bring out some more detail in the crags of the rock faces, but that's just me. :D

    That's just some awesome natural architecture. Really looks great with the clouds. Nice job Dan! :)

    Very nice!! You know you've nailed your exposure when you don't have to sit and play with it in PS to bring out shadow detail. This looks really good. I like your composition, and the fact you have some interest in the sky. Ever think about using any filters? A polarizer might have enhanced that sky even more. The more you capture when out in the field the less PS you'll ever have to fool with.

    That is with a polarizer terri. It was partly cloudy and a lot of hazy clouds were right in the frame.

    Wow - really? I took another look at the image and there isn't much blue sky to be seen, true.... I guess I expected more blue in those shadows from using it. Interesting.

    I adjusted color balance very slightly to compensate for the bluish effect of the polarizer.
