A late afternoon shot over the Grand Canyon. Taken as much for the sky as the canyon itself. Another portrait format shot so I expect it will bomb.

Nothing wrong the portrait format for me. Cracking shot and your portfolio is just as impressive!

I sincerely doubt any of your images that you consider worthy enough to upload would bomb. Your background in art gives a natural ability to pick out a good composition. This is another fine example, Macolm - foreground interest, lead-throughs, and so well balanced, plus a great sky.

An amazing sky Malcolm, it takes a lot to upstage the Grand Canyon but this does and your composition makes the most of it!

The sky appears to be bubbling up over the canyon here, such wild beauty and so accessible from the rim. I suppose it gets hotter each step you take down into the canyons and the world becomes a different place. A very powerful image Malcolm.

Exactly. The colour contrast is right grand, too.
