Very high quality pic. Don't personally know how it relates to your corner, but that's okay. 9 nards656

I commend you on capturing both the spirit of the challenge (something about where you live) and a truly artistic photograph. Since I find only "good" in this picture it is difficult to suggest any improvements. Perhaps a 1-degree tilt to the right might be helpful.

Nice use of repetition, almost seems a tad over exposed?

I like this close up - my eye hungers for a greener color contrast but this may not be true - the sense is strong and would be great in a composite of some kind along with the western vista - great shot! 8 sgtpepper6344

Very cool crisp shot. I don't think I would have known what I was looking at, though, had it not been for your title. Still, a good perspective of the Saguaro.
