This is beautiful! The detail is super as it the clarity, very well done on all aspects. The one thing I am not sure of is the color in the brush in the foreground. Not that it is there just that there might be too much of it or a little too strong. I looked at the bigger image on Flickr too. Have you printed it yet? If so what did you think of the color up front? I will also ask what was your reason for it?

Hi. I did print it and have mixed feelings about any color at all.. that's one of the reasons I posted this for review. I have not yet printed this as straight B & W and was looking for suggestions before I print on Epson Exhibition Fiber paper. I usually "waste" the first print for Mark-up, e.g. circle the red bush and write "De-saturate" , indicate areas where more dodge/burn are required ... then make the final print (most of the time )

Gary, I'd go further than Scott and suggest a more panoramic crop, all monotone (not necessarily b&w). I mentally converted that red bush to grayscale, and it, along with the relatively featureless area, could be cropped out. imho...
Hi Gary Your final edit is lovely! I think you can be quite proud of the piece. I Had a look at your flicker site. Having lived on Colorado and now visit quite frequently I was drawn to your beautiful pictures. Wonderfull captures!
