Shenandoah is close to being my backyard, so I have the awesome blessing to be able to go there often. This spot I've been to many times, and I always seem to like to include Hazeltop mountain in photos here (the somewhat prominent one in the back). In this case it is framed by the brightly lit rock on the right and the rocks in shadow on the bottom left. I like the contrast of the bright red against the darker blue clouds in the back. The red really was that vibrant, I don't think I adjusted the saturation a whole lot in this case. It was a tricky composition as just a little up and there's some weeds if I remember right, and just a little left and there's a blue trail blaze on the red rock. I also like the wide angle, as the red rock if I remember right was only like 3 or maybe 4 feet tall and it looks quite larger. I do like the color contrast, but I am curious what you guys think? Not sure if it affects opinion on the composition, but generally in a lot of my photos I do include text in the form of Bible verses, in this case I place it over the rocks in shadow, somewhat helping the composition IMO.
