Looks like you were limited by a fixed length lens?

I think shots like this need to include the ground and some foreground interest (lake or tree etc)

i agree with cg. also the rock is dead center.

i do agree though, it's a great place to shoot.

OK i'm going to chime in also ... move the rock to the left because the right edge of it is so much more interesting. But you've really captured the essence, the red red rock and blue blue sky. I had 4 days in Phoenix recently, and decided to take a little day trip somewhere just for myself, so went up to Sedona via Prescott then Jerome ... what a spectacular drive. But by the time i got to Sedona it was certifiably raining. So i missed the beautiful colors like you got, but instead, got another kind of shot ... and it was totally the landscape shapes that made these images still interesting!

Next time i'll have blue skies.

Just a thought, but I'd bet the buildings might not have been a bad inclusion. They could have given an interesting foreground while the rocks would have made a fantastic bkg.

Buildings at Bell Rock? Hard to believe someone would mess with such a vortex.

Yes it never used to be that way when I was a kid now it is a mecca for
tourists.

Thanks for all the comments I will try a little foreground in my next shots.

How did you like the drive up to Jerome? That was the first time I had taken that way. Jerome is a great place to visit also.
It rained there :eek:? Although it does rain alot more than Phx.

Thanks for the comments.
