As the first rays of morning light caught the mountains I thought I would use this sagebrush as a strong foreground to lead the eye to the ruined hut.

The composition is excellent, the lighting is fabulous too ... however the shot looks a little soft. This may be from the downsize tho.

Great, this deserves to be seen, it's stunning.
The large view looks pretty sharp to me, perhaps Dan's eyes are a bit younger than mine.
