I gave this an 8. Definitely amazing scene. I remember pondering this image for a while - from the crop alternatives (without the sky), to wondering if the 'greenery' naturally grows so prolifically there without the assistance of man and his 'weeds' into the river system.

The blues do seem a little over done in this shot, the greens are affected too but they do blend more, Nice horseshoe shot though, well done

what an impressive location - the sky with the clouds, the turn of the river - very cool - i just wonder if the greens are a bit oversaturated

Nice shot of the Bend. It looks a little heavy on the greenery, especially on the left bank.

Oh I'd love to see this in person! Wonderful colours in the cliffs and river, blue sky looks a little overdone.

Beautiful colors and angle. Very well composed nature shot, it really gives the sense of scale well.

Did you see my footprints where you were standing? Overall, a nice capture of Horseshoe Bend. I hope the voters don't think that the greenish/yellowish tones around the water and on the left is a color cast. This isn't the easiest shot to post process but you have, in fact, done a good job of capturing this wonderous scene.
