I hate predicting winners because it seems I'm always wrong, but this seems like one to me. Strong composition, gorgeous colors, technically perfect. One of the prettiest pictures of this monument I've ever seen.

As is evident from the overwhealming compliments, this is a great shot. I am just curious what you did. Did you adjust this in photo shop any? Do you recall any of the settings? At first glance, without knowing much about this stuff, it looks like you adjusted the satuation levels just a little bit. I am just curious because it is such a great shot. My wife said--ooohh you have to see this shot. This is one that I would definitely put on my wall.

wow, thank you again, everyone! and to answer some of the questions, this was taken with a singh ray gold-n-blue polarizing filter, and a 10-stop nd filter. the only adjustment in photoshop was an auto-contrast and a slight curves adjustment. the shot settings were: f/11 at 100 iso for 30 seconds.
