I recently went to Zion National Park for a photography workshop. This image was taken with a D300. A Sigma 17-70 lens was used and the focal length was 24mm. ISO was 200, aperture was f/22, shutter speed was 1/4 second. A tripod was used. And, as the subject indicates, it was taken in the Narrows .
Constructive criticism is welcomed.

That sounds like a great workshop, Ellen.
My only suggestions are to clone out the one dust bunny in the water, and
boost saturation and contrast a smidgen. Excellent. Do you have more??
I'd love to see them.

Thanks for the kind words and comments. I have an idea of where the dust bunny is but, to be sure, can you specify its location in the image?
> Do you have more??
Yes, I have lots more A few are posted in my galleries:
Here is one of the images, taken at Lower Antelope Canyon, one of the Slot Canyons near Page, AZ:
Also, Peter Schutte goes to Zion National Park every year in September. It was Peter's workshop that I took. His web site is here:
Highly recommended! In addition to Zion, we went to Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks National Monument and the Slot Canyons in Page, AZ.

Thank you! I worked hard to get the shutter speed slow enough to capture the water movement
