This hits home for me personally because i've been there and attempted my photo shoot with tourists in my way, as well as forgetting to empty my memory card for as too only keep my good ones in hopes for a better shot. It's hard to be original with slot canyon photos for every angle that could be done, has been done. Getting the shot for yourself however is breathtaking and you should be glorified for that. You obviously surpass me as a photographer so the only thing I can say about this breathtaking image is that I probably would have just a slightly slower shutter speed if not a hair higher iso to get just a hint more light in there to really bring out those warm vibrant colors of the sandstone rock walls. Which understandably is difficult with such a bright contrast in the back of the shot. But overall you are very talented and keep up beautiful shots like this! :)
What do you think?

this is has beautiful lighting as well as dramatic shadows and the negative space in the openings is finominal. that fact that you caught this at just the right angle and that its centered with a beautiful horizon if beautiful.

it's just.. so freaken beautiful!! and how you can see the rocks scuff marks and the detail that was captured.. its shocking!! you are a wonderful photographer.
this hit me right in the 'feels'.

im a cave finatic and well i really am just so astonished on how much you captured that its sort of hard to believe but here it is right in front of me on a computer screen! <3 you have my congrats

A wonderful photograph. You should check out a photographer named Leping Zha, and look at his cavern shots. This photo reminds me strongly of his.

Beautiful. I like that the colors are more subdued, it sets it apart and makes the shapes really stand out.

What pleases the eye in this amazing shot are the straight, horizontal lines of the sedimentary layers being moderated by the vertical sine wave of the eroded edges, ultimately softened by the soft and quiet sand of the cave floor. One can imagine the quiet of such a sanctuary (although it would be foolhardy to try and live there year around; the water erosion and sand is from annual flash floods no doubt).

But a place of peace for at least a moment in life none the less. :)
