About the Image(s)

Captured this photo with an iPhone 11 Pro. Straight photo with slight adjustments in Snapseed. I was there in mid-day which made for harsh lighting. This is an awesome place for photography.

Midday is certainly not a good moment for photos, but you do your best on any given circumstances. Great texture and composition.

Yes, midday is not the best time of the day to shoot, especially a scenic. However, sometimes we must shoot it for our own memories...If you have a photo shop program the scene could be improved by darkening the rock formations, especially on the lower right...   Posted: 03/11/2020 16:00:57

a great framing photo. I might crop some of the bottom off and use Photo shop to enhance the rocks more. It definitely looks like an awesome place to visit.   Posted: 03/16/2020 16:18:37

The problem is that the sky is so dominant that when you look through the rocks you focus on the blue sky, and ignore some of the nice detail on the edges. We need a more dramatic centrepiece.   Posted: 03/18/2020 07:22:54

yes too flat. first thought was to darken the framing rocks. or take into photoshop and duplicate layer take one copy an try some filters to change the lighting to give it depth. or simply replace the sky with a slightly more dramatic one.
Serge Rameille on Utube. He does dramatic skies but also shows how to do it quickly.   Posted: 03/18/2020 13:21:09
