    Nice shots of the canyon.

    Cochiti Tentrocks ? Or somewhere else ?

    This is just personal preference, but I think slot canyon photos look better when they're oranger (cloudy white balance). Still, this is a great series.

    Well, the rock at Cochiti Tentrocks is a white, sometimes slightly grey, colour, so to my eye (and I live about 25 miles from this formation), the colour's quite good.

    I know it's accurate, but I think orange draws the viewer in more :)

  8. Your probably refering to the No. Arizona/Utah slot canyons, they are naturally red/orange in color. Most slot canyons image you see are taken there.

    I know, but there's ways to "fake it".

    This is just a personal preference, though, like I said before, this is an outstanding series :smile:
