Beautiful pallete, enhanced by the soft light of the time of day. But I must tell you that I will snitch on you: I will tell all your friends from ph that you are a closet landscape photographer ....omigod, omigod ;-)

Arrgh - this is why people use grad nd filters... Your sky is a bit overexposed. A pity, considering the amazing clarity and the beautiful light. It's still a very nice shot - I would probably crop out the top 1/5th though...
Which font did you use for the title? It's very clean and attractive!

A stunning photo.The light on the tree is magical and the recession in the rocks makes for a wonderful scene.T.F.S. Gladys

this was a very nice oportunity i must say .. the composition was such that it wud lead the viewer's eye from the sunbathed tree till the end of the canyon .. but the overexposed sky does injustice to ur shot .. i wud go with biswaroop n also think that a graduated ND filter wud have helped u immensely here.
But i must say that u have 'seen' the composition so very very well here.

Bonjour Peter, ca manque un peu de force dans les contrastes mais c'est ce qui fait la beauté de cette photo à la profondeur infinie.
Excellents POV et cadrage, bon choix d'avant plan.

You, being back... And with such a "lovely" photo - which is not your style! ;o)
Well, I love the soft tones and I don't think the contrasts should be improved as the misty background gives a good idea of the very early hour and the immensity of the place.
It must be very impressive to stand there wit such a landscape at your feet!

Hi Peter, very nice & beautiful capture. Reddish shade on the trees contrasting with whites & greens looks amazing.

Unexpected soft light on thsi canyon photo, often brought under harsh daylight. A pleasure to look at the play of sunrays around the tree.

Mix of colours is splendid here. Warm tones of sunrise on the dry tree. Cool haze in the background and fresh greens of foreground. Amazing place of course, and well picked foreground subjects.
