    Hi Colin

    Nice piece of rock here. Would light up beautifully no doubt in the late afternoon light. I think it could do with a little more sharpening ..

    Nice rock formation. I would add a touch more contrast to the scene and a little more sharpening as Don mentions. If you are able to photograph this location in late afternoon light the rocks would look great. They do appear a little bit flat here

    Interesting subject not so interesting light. Still would be worth a revisit a few times if it is close to you.

    Hi Colin, I think yhis work work better as a vertical putting more emphasis on the rock formation and i agree about more contrast and I would lower the highlights a tad also.
