This was one of the very first landscape photos that I took with a dSLR, just about 18 months ago. At that time, I didn't know about polarizers or grads or foregrounds or anchors. However, this image has always been a favorite of mine.

It was early Spring in Zion. The cottonwoods were just getting their first leaves. The place was glowing. I had been working on making a photo of the Three Patriarchs. For no particular reason, I walked across the road and stumbled into this view.

I use this image on my business card.

XTi + 17-85 @17mm F22 1/15 iso 100.

Hey Lance,
Definitely can pull of a digital fix with a multiplied layer. I may also remove some of the branches on the right or work on a few crops to further strenghten the comp. Polarise in the field.......would have been huge in this instance.

I like the framing on the peak with the curvature of the FG. Agree with Roman and others on the sky and perhaps cloning some of the branches.
