About the Image(s)

This was taken at Saguaro National Park in Arizona in 2007 during the PSA Conference in Tucson. I did some edits in LR to open up the foreground and then took it into Topaz Adjust and used the Sunset preset.

I like the way you brought out some of the foreground detail -- it was done in a subtle way so as not to make it strictly a silhouette picture. Maybe the right side of the image could be cropped out a bit so as to emanate the cactus on the right edge. Also, the "sun," or where the sun was, could be brightened up a bit. Nice colors -- really evocative of a desert day coming to and end.   Posted: 08/08/2019 15:20:07

Bravo! Great image with perfect composition. Your processing skills made this one pop. Can't think of a way to improve it.   Posted: 08/09/2019 08:05:42

Very nice. We spend the winter in Arizona and I've been to the national Park many many times. I think you've done an excellent job on this sunset image. The position of the sun is perfect. I also very much like the way you have brought out the details in the vegetation rather than turn it into a silhouette. The saguaros are by far my favorite flora only because each one is so unique. You have captured many different ones and sizes in this image. Very pleasing to look at   Posted: 08/12/2019 10:58:52
