This is a shot I took on a caving trip this weekend to Stephens Gap in Scottsboro Alabama. This is an AMAZING cave with a nearly 200 foot vertical entrance with a waterfall cascading down through it. This is looking toward the entrance from further back in the cave. This is an HDR composition of several frames. I don't expect this to score especially well because it is ever so slightly out of focus and rather dark and drab. It is in a hole in the ground, after all. :-) Oh, and the composition could use some work too. :-)

Wow! This is amazing! I would love to go there someday. I think this should definitely be in the top 5 or 10 minimum!

Great color, detail and composition. This is one of those shots that really invites me in to look around.

this is so peaceful and serene. The man in the middle helps give the depth of this cave perspective.
