What a cracker! (that's English for 'great' in case....)

Weirdly, there seems to be a face to the right in the water, with an open mouth, red lips, and lots of big teeth. Reminds of the film 'Mask', but yellowy, not green.

I love the American Scenery - you have such a lot, and what variety

Unfortunately, I live in England, and cannot afford to travel to the States, but would love to come and visit some of these beautiful places.

Congrats, and best of luck for the future!

Beautiful--great perspective. I have to get there in the next few years. We were planning but haven't made it yet.

Congrat's on 4th!

As an aside, do you see the face in the lower right? :)

Wow that's a pretty deep and narrow canyon. Beautiful photograph! The silky water looks awesome and the bright yellow leaves make quite the statement.

crop just under the two rocks in the lower right and you have an awesome photo. The blurred water in the foreground is a little distracting.

This is great. I love how the flowing water leads the eye right to those steep vertical cliffs. Nice sharp focus and rich colors.

My wife and I have been working on our smoth water effect, and really like this picture. Great effect, and the slow shutter speed did not cause over exposure. Highlights on wet rocks look good, and the composition is great. Good job. -TEN!-

Great perspective. I like the rich red tones of the canyon.

Beautiful!! I wanna go there! :) I love the way you got down on the level of the water. How did you do this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The OOF water in the foreground takes my attention away from that fascinating rock formation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2006 06:09:37 PM
Hope you didn't get your camera wet. Love the angle, makes the water seem as if it is coming right at you. Oh, wait, it was coming at you.

You have done great justice to this beautiful place. One of my favorite places ever!

This will score very well as it has all the elements of good photographic composition and is well processed..congratulations...a ribbon maybe?

I'm not normally of fan of long shutters on water but I do like the way it works in this one. 10. Nice job.

11/01/2006 09:21:21 AM
great..pretty dramatic..not very sharp, as i see it..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2006 03:24:34 AM
Have you noticed the reflection lower right looks like a face? Eerie... Nice shot, perhaps a little too symmetrical top to bottom. The implied horizon is smack-dead-center, and in this case it seems to make the image a little more static than it ought to be. Great POV.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2006 03:12:09 AM
oh yeah, this is good. make syou feel like you're right in the Virgin River. great Job. -10-
