Zion in Fall

Pic #1

If you've never been to Zion National Park in the fall, you should go. I, (yes me), with my 6 megapixel Nikon D40, took these pictures, no touch up this past weekend.
In one of my undergrad writing classes I remember a quote that our teacher read to us that went something like, "Even the poorest astronomer, through diligence, is bound to see some shooting stars." Now, for the life of me, I can't find the exact quote. Seriously Google? You've answered all my other obscure questions, why can't you find my quote?
Anyway, that's how I feel about my photography. I have a decent camera and sometimes I get lucky with lighting and scenery. It's easy to take beautiful pictures in Zion, especially in the fall.
Which one should we make humongous to hang on our wall?

Nice!!! I would go with #1 or #2 (I love the composition, coloring and lighting), depending on how much of the wall you want taken up. If you want more wall taken up then go #1. The light is gorgeous in these, wish we'd have been there when the light was so fantastic. :(

I vote #2. I know nothing about photography, but I think it's fabulous.

You can't make a bad choice with those pictures. I am looking for a new camera, maybe I should look a a Nikon. Great pictures!!

Number 2. And I happen to know a great custom picture framer. Yep. I'm married to him. :)

After Grandpa saw your pictures, #1 became our screen saver.

I would go with #5. I really like how the trees are kind of framing the picture. And having grown up just a few miles from there, that is how I picture Zion.
