Hi Rob, My previous comments still apply but the difference is the color has been brought up and possibly some contrast since the image doesn't look as flat. I feel it's an improvement over the OP.

Hey Rob, This is certainly a difficult place to capture. I like your composition and the way the framing trees mimic the "U" curve in the rock. A few suggestions I would have for shooting something like this...I would start at f/16 or larger to be ensure sharpness throughout the image. Given the light situation you would still have plenty of speed for HH. I would include the entire tree on the right as some branches are just clipped...you could also just clone those branches out to make it appear that the entire tree is included (easy fix). Since you have some blue sky, if possible, I would have waited a few minutes in hope of getting some more blue to add additional interest to the sky. TFS
