Aperture: f/4
ISO: 1/315
Shutter: 80

Actually relatively little editing done to this shot. Almost all the editing is the sky. Added gradient to the sky. Adjusted levels and saturation in a few places.

Taken with the Sony Mavica FD92.

Thanks to the powers that be for choosing that particular year for the challenge! It was my most scenic and best trip ever! I thought the old Sony did a good job.

Would love to know what part of the Grand Canyon this is, as I am getting ready to make a road trip with my girls and we are going to visit here (South Rim).. This is quite a beautiful picture, I really like the background with the bluish and coppery tones...well done

I just stumbled on this shot, and think it's ironic that I have this same shot in my files, twice! I visited this very spot in 1988, and then again this summer. I was comparing my own shots when we got home this year and found that I had taken virtually the same shot on two visits, 20 years apart! I wish we had better weather for our trip this time -- I got shots of this location, and it began pouring for the rest of the day, and it was only around 60 degrees. Bah :)

I like the lighting in the foreground however the colours on the background seem a little strange. Was a storm coming in?

Don't know how I missed this shot previously. What a great vista. The sky is especially striking - lovely tones.

Well done on capturing detail in the mountains and the sky. I like the layering of the foreground branches, middleground mountains and the background mountains.

Wow, not hard to leave a comment for this one.
Its a simply stunning view, very well captured.
I think the compostition is great with the tree to the right framing it nicely, i also like the height of the horizon and the colours surrounding it.

Very surreal feeling to this image. Colors and composition are spot on IMO.

It was one of the main overlooks, off to the side a bit. Seems to me like it wasn't too far from the lodge area. We were on a bus tour of the canyon with stops at the regular sites. I don't know that much about the canyon to tell you which rim it was or anything like that. It was early in April, so I think the rim that is closed for the winter may not have even been open yet. Sorry I can't be more specific!
