I was perusing the previous contest winners when I came across this picture...quite an awesome shot...but it looks so familiar. Has this been published in a magazine...perhaps popular photography or something of that nature. I thought for sure that I saw it printed before I saw it on this site. Sorry this is so belated...good shot and keep up the good work.

I was in America a few years ago and went into Antelope Canyon. Although I found it very beautiful im also very claustraphobic and couldnt get out quick enough. This shot reminded me of just how beautiful it was and bought back a lot of great memories.
Fantastic shot, just how I remembered it. #389085

I love your photo!!. I volunteered my time to a create web
site for local (Philadelphia) meditation teacher, and now another has
asked me to create a web site. The one I just did is at The new one is for a woman named
Francie, and she found your photo and is wondering if she can use it for
her web site. We will gladly give you credits on the photo credits
page! Please consider this, but if you do not want us to use your
picture, we will surely honor your wish.

I just have to comment about the above comment. How much investment in time, education, energy and money did Steve put into the above photo? How realistic is it for someone else to ask to "use it" presumably for free? I have seen too many examples of people not recognizing that artists should be compensated -- read that "paid" -- for their efforts and artistic vision! #415090

Incredible shot Steve. Great job. And I don't think there is harm in asking Dorothy. It depends on the person, it's great to be compensated, and at times, it is nice to volunteer service and skill. No harm in asking, but you have a good point. #746577

That beam of light is perfect! Did you take several to see it move across the floor?

This Photo is amazing! I love how the light comes through the rocks and the colors. Great Shot, and Congrats on your win!!! #4332549

Wow this is a conversational thread :) I just want to comment on the photograph itself. However did you get the light without overexposing it and the rocks without underexposing. I am learning this very thing and it is not easy. You did a fabulous job. I agree, grand prize was deserved by you :) #8853969
