Re: Bryce Canyon

Really nice composition. The trees in the foreground do so much so you really feel the space.

Re: Bryce Canyon

Rongier - This is just simply quite beautiful. The palette is perfect for the subject and, as Jim said, the composition is powerful. Well done! ~Don

Re: Bryce Canyon

Very well done and a great sense of scale. The eagle adds a bit of life to the stillness of the landscape.

Re: Bryce Canyon

This one's a beauty, Robert! I especially like the defined edges on the rocks/cliffs and both the mossy green and very pale green/light gray in the trees.

Re: Bryce Canyon

Bryce is a really tough subject and you've done it justice. I've seen some really gaudy paintings of it, but this is subdued and beautiful. I may revisit those photos I took there earlier in July.
