Really like this. Cool perspective. Feels ominous.

Very beautiful picture and light. I prefer the first grand cascade (close up) than the (full). In close up , beautiful mysterious atmosphere!

Now that the contest is over and the Judges are choosing I thought I'd add a few after thoughts and a couple of links. Win or lose it was a fun (and frustrating  ;)) experience. Thanks for the kind comments, they are always appreciated.  First link is a beautiful video of the recent world record ascent of Yosemite's El Capitan along the iconic route known as "The Nose". 3,000 vertical feet in two hours, nineteen minutes and 44 seconds... :

The second link is to a video I made in November of 2017, before the cliff contest was announced. This was a study using a Megascans cliff scan that I made of a series of TG renderings with the lighting simulating a dawn to dusk movement:

If you've ever stood beneath one of these formations you can appreciate the true meaning of oft over-used word: Awesome!  El Cap is a take-your-breath-away wonder. I feel fortunate to have stood in it's shadow so many times. These glacial walls are an unending source of inspiration!
