Alberto: I like the color palette and your POV especially. I also like your DOF management. I do think I would crop away the strip of light colored BG up top.>=))>

Beautifully captured, Alberto - the cactus nice and sharp. and the openness of the setting ( including, in my view, the glimpse of the sky in the distance ) gives you a strong sense of place.

Second vote for removing the sky. Otherwise pleasing to view and different from the usual view of Death Valley. Good eye to see this perspective and you presented it well.
