Working on an image for a future Ashundar contest (Red Rock theme).  Would love any suggestions for improvement.

Gorgeous.  About the only nitpicks I can come up with right now are that the shadow beyond the lit water appears too dark (on a flat screen, mind you) and the (beautiful) scalloped erosion at the base of the rock formation on the left side of the image appears a bit too uniform and unnatural to me.  Of course, many natural phenomena also appear this way, but there's something about the way they work with the ripples on the base rock below that appears too contrived to me.  Oh blah di!  Still a gorgeous image.

EDIT: Oh wait, that shadow's from a ledge, I just caught the roughness there.  Hmm .. cool thing .. kinda ugly shadow. Oh well!

I like the coloring, the point of view, the lighting and the texturing is excellent. 
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?
