True, you really nailed it, David. I think your composition is excellent. I enjoy the way the shadows across the foreground promontory are the stars of the show, and your progressive red to blue shadows in the canyon are perfect. Wonderful!

David, fantastic palette, you sure captured this scene marvelously.
Great colors and play of light and shadow on the canyon walls!

Would love to see both the painting and the Canyon in person! You've captured it just as I imagine it to be.

An incredible piece! Takes me on a mini-vacation to one of my favorite places.
How about putting a touch of light on the top of the foreground bush where the bottom of the dark triangle points to it?
