Agree about cropping out the sky.

Hi Derek,

Several comments FWIW:

1. Every image can generally benefit from some sort of 'frame of reference'. In the wildly curving forms, the horizontal line is a nice frame of reference for a viewer to mentally grab on to. Well done.

2. The stark contrast of the blue sky is very strong and pulls my eye up there over and over... But the sky is just a blob of color and is a minor element compared to the dazzling flow of the rocks. I'm wondering if the image can be strengthened by cropping out the sky leaving just the flowing forms playing against that convenient horizontal line? Then my eye more comfortably roves freely over the flowing forms and that plays to the dynamic nature of the place and image.

Cheers!
