Hi Iain, I would like to see the colour version and, if it is a crop, have the cowboy over to the left more, as I feel that the empty space in the top left corner is a flaw... just my humble opinion of course, but WOW what a shot with great colour popping and sandstone tones, this is an awesome shot.

I have as requested by Chensuriashi uploaded the un popped and full image area of the shot, i wasn't cropped anyhow. The rule of thirds is in my opinion what I have done with this as the cowboy is in the right third of the image.
Let me know what you think

Hi, Iain thanks for reposting this one, it is an awesome shot, with inspiring Geology, clearly visible. I would have tried to get a little closer here around to the right if possible, as it was only 120mm you must have been quite close to him here and the sun would have been on the horses flank showing more of the cowboy too. It is hard to get the shot right, with just one. At least six in different ways lowering ISO all the while my cam wont shoot ISO 50 as yours does, wish it did, and different exp speeds, all cams shoot better on manual settings in my humble opinion. The lens is a superb one too, the horse is so sharp and could have been much bigger in the frame, but again that is easy to say after the shot.
I am so looking forward to going to the Grand Canyon and Vegas for shots as good as this one, sometime in my life, and it is not a place to be missed especially as I work in a casino.
