    Thanks for the comment Maike13. Actually, I saturated the whole image just to bring out some of the lighting on the surrounding rock. My wife and I can't agree on the intensity of the image. She says it's too intense, especially in the area on the rocks that reflect the blue from the opening. I had toned it down somewhat but my final interpretation is what you see. I wasn't overly pleased with the result but I thought the shot was unique enough to share.

    Ambitious shot with the difficult lighting involved. You did a great job on it too. You really needed someone up there to throw a big white sheet or something over the hole to diffuse the light :-) Just right around the hole looks a bit odd. Did you de-saturate in that area?
