In trying to show the perspective of this mitten in Arches National Park, getting down low and not shooting to wide proved to be the right method, shooting ultra wide would have shown the entire valley in perspective but shooting moderately wide and getting down low seemed the best approach for showing the massive rock mitten of Courthouse Rock.

Moving back further away put the rock in its context of the surrounding valley, 41mm gave me the perspective I was looking for with out having to much sky in the image and still retaining enough foreground interest.
