    IMO, I liked the clouds and the slightly less neutral shadows in the original. Just my opinion, of course. The slightly blown highlights on the rock I would try to reign in if possible.

    In B&W the blown highlights are just that

    In color they are rivers of Gold

    IMHO

    Edit Looks a bit muddy and washed out. Crop is too tight for me in this case. The Canyon is an intense place with intense views that are dramatic and I don't get that feeling from edit.

    I agree with you Steven. Your version is stunning with the blues and cyans in the sky complementing the reds and yellows of the canyon. And your dynamic range is excellent for a sunny day with deep shadows and bright highlights. Very nice.

    I'll agree with the Tin Man and say its your vision, go for it. Definitely not my vision of the Canyon, but I never did get a decent image for all the time I spent there. We all see and experience color differently, so color photography has always been difficult to judge. Even the edit has too much saturation for my tastes and memories of the Canyon. So it goes. I probably have a low color saturation brain...

    Over saturation is always an issue with canyon shots. What we see is by far not as saturated as this image. I have tried processing to exactly how the Canyon looked/looks, but have found for art sake I lean towards more saturation. I may pull this one back a point or two, see how it looks. Interestingly enough, the Canyon loses its dramatic punch when images are done exactly how Canyon looks.

    Maybe after a few Koren years of 4 or 5 visits a year, I can get a really good image.

    I could try to reign in the hot rocks. Black and white looks pretty good too. Next time I will shoot this scene in bw.
