Can you revise your post to direct us to a higher res version as well? That is currently below our minimum requirement of 640 X 480, and we prefer highest resolution possible.

Great photo Rockfilmers, it's my favorite yet. Do you think you could post a 1900 pix wide wallpaper sized version?


Great entries from everyone else as well. Looking forward to seeing some portrait/people work in 4.
