Hi everyone.
Im a 99.9% wildlife guy but I took a trip up to Sedona and couldnt resist taking a landscape shot.
Done with my 7d and 18-55 kit lens (since I dont shoot landscape)
I think I should have put the horizon higher in the frame but I'll take it.

I like it a lot Jeremy, it is a very good shot, and I'd take it too! heheh

Like you mentioned, if you had it lowered some, that would be better, at least the way I like things.
If the sky had interesting clouds, then if you framed it like this, it'd have made a world of difference then.
Since the skies were (beautifully) clear, the way I would approach this, (like I know better, heheh) would be to get closer to the ground on this shot, then have only about 1/3 of the sky in it.
I love bird shooting, but once I get to taking landscapes, I can't stop, I may not know what I am doing, but I try to emulate what I see on here. :)

That's a very naturally saturated shot though, you have the focus dead-on, and that is frame-able if you wanted it.

(Don't tell anyone, but I use the 18-55mm kit lens sometimes, I actually like it, I still use my other wide-angles, but I keep one of those for emergencies)

I like this photo. I would crop the top third off, then re size to 13 inch on the high side. It would give about 30 or so inch on the long side. It would make a perfect panoramic print.

great idea. I always crop to original proportions but this would make a good panoramic with the top cropped off.
