An interesting exercise is to compare this really great photo with the one I took from the same viewpoint a few moments later . Breland's shot is only slightly sharpened, no other work. The G5 does an exceptional job of well saturated photos with the controls set to automatic. My image is not nearly is good. I'm a foot shorter and it changed the angle. I used a D70 and shot in RAW, so I had to adjust saturation and contrast.

No photo shop here just sharpened a little, the light in NM is that great. The scratches are crevices in the sandstone filled with snow

Look at the upper to mid half of the image. Looks, whats with the scratches in the image.

REally breathtaking. So dramatic. Very well done.
BTW, who is the hot air expert in your little family? ;-)
