One of those iconic shots you just have to take, nicely done, congratulations on the HM.

I had seen a lot of shots of Horseshoe Bend but had no idea where it was and happened to drive by and wondered why so many people were turning in, then I saw the sign and had to turn around and see it for myself. It really is quite impressive and hard to really understand just how big it is from a photo.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

Congratulations for your high placing with this appealing landscape that meets the challenge well.

A classic scene captured in a classic way, this popular location once more delivers the goods! In terms of the challenge the river is perfectly and naturally framed by the surrounding cliffs. The water is well contrasted with the red stone of the surroundings.

The lighting is fairly flat but conducive to a good even exposure so you have good detail throughout, though the highlights on the water, particularly the left, look close to the limit they are a relatively small but important part of the scene. Your DOF is good with acceptable sharpness throughout. I find the top left corner a little distracting it intrudes in a way that doesn't add to the overall result and looks as though there is some CA with it too, I think it would have been better if you could have excluded it, though it looks as though it was probably difficult. I'm not keen on the red border, I would prefer it without.

Thanks for making such a significant contribution to the challenge, Sid
