    A well known and photographed landmark, but I like your shot , and also the two people to add a human element(ring-ins??) - good work.

    it must have been interesting to take that shot, good on you! very unique landscape, i can almost see a face jutting to of the rock at the first dip in the rock left of the people.

    Magnificent scene, superb lighting brings out the best in the rock colouring against the subtle greens of the vegetation and river. Great use of panorama technology.

    I'll say it's spectacular, and kudos to you for showing us the scale by including the people on the right. Tremendous shot!

    Beautiful image of an iconic spot. The people in the top right of the photo help give a scale to the scene.

    usually I can't stand people in my photos, but here they give scale and a real sense of awe. great picture, love the composition and the contrast in colours.

    the figures don't belong in the picture and draw the eye from the splendor of the canyon

    Wonderful shot. Love the scale provided by the human figures but I still find it amazing how small the trees are at the bottom. Spectacular!

    Great shot, Grand Canyon is a beautiful place, unfortunately not many photos can do it justice as the expanse is just so immense. But I feel your shot does a remarkable job in capturing it, the 2 people in shot really help give the viewer perspective of its immensity.

    Quite stunning; the figures help the perspective; colours are magnificent

    We saw both Lake Powell and Lake Mead on this trip and I keep mixing them up!

    i've been here a few times but always too early in the day and have to deal with huge shadow (not to mention a touch of acrophobia). its a great spot and hard for some to imagine how far down it is to the water. i thought i could capture this with a wide angle but my lens just wasn't quite wide enough. nice job on the pano. (it is actually lake powell nearby but no points deducted for that).
in my favorites on first go through.
