About the Image(s)

Was visiting my son in Colorado Springs last month and can never resist time at Garden of the Gods. This is one of the rock formations and I liked how the sun was hitting it.

This was one of my favorite formations when we visited the Garden of the Gods. I think you captured the sharpness of the detail on the side of the peak very well, and I like the way the shadows accentuate the structure. I wanted to see if a vertical presentation would focus even more on the mountain and remove a few distractions from the shrub on the right. See what you think.   Posted: 03/09/2020 14:52:20

The sharpness and composition takes my breath away! The trees add to the depth of field , leading into the image. This needs to be enlarged and hung on a wall.   Posted: 03/18/2020 11:27:43

Terrific shot of rock formation of Garden of the Gods. you found a really good viewpoint and framed the mountain well. I like the diagonal of the subject going from the lower left corner to the upper right corner. There a bit distractions by the surroundings pulling the eye away from the formation. I agree with Audry's crop version.   Posted: 03/18/2020 23:39:29

Dynamic mountain image with good lighting and colors. I like Audrey's change better since it focuses more on the mountain.
I enlarged it in Lightroom and it was a little out of focus which would have to be addressed if you want to make a large print.   Posted: 03/19/2020 18:36:27

Does everyone understand that the Garden of the Gods formations were once horizontal, and were subsequently uplifted by geological forces and twisted to their present vertical alignment?   Posted: 03/20/2020 01:25:45
