This combination works great. A bit of unreal feeling, but it looks wonderful.

Fantastic, light, color and presentation!! I was really disappointed that we had to cancel our trip to Denver which would have given us a chance to get down to the Air Force Academy. Another time I hope.

Ken,
I am up too late but had to comment!
Great composition; it looks like either image could have stood alone, together it is indeed spectacular!
