Tripod: HandHeld

Deion: This was taken on November 10, 2019 while visiting Las Vegas, Nevada

While in Las Vegas last week I went to the Valley of Fire State Park. There are hundreds of photos to be taken there. I choose to go to “The Wave” which is about an hour walk from the main road. This photo was taken at the end of the trail.

Processed it in Photoshop and increased the color to bring out the reds and yellows.

A very beautiful image! Sharp from one end to the other. I admire your stability, sharp at 1/30s. Well composed with the curved lines leading into the picture. Also, like the complementary colors in the rocks and the sky. Would not change a thing.   Posted: 12/11/2019 15:34:40

Looks like you hit the hyperfocal distance right on. Nicely done. The whole image looks well processed to me, especially the clouds. The choice of a portrait orientation was best. A nit suggestion would be to eliminate the red band in the lower left of the image. I wonder what the image would look like if you moved slightly right - maybe you were in the right spot though.   Posted: 12/11/2019 17:49:40

Great shot! Lots of detail from front to back with leading lines taking one right into the image. Really nice color throughout the image. The only thing I would do is get rid of the red band at the lower left of the image. Very nice image.   Posted: 12/14/2019 09:41:27

Lovely image that is done extremely well. I think there are some very good comments here. In my opinion it is tack sharp and I, too, wonder if a certain shift of framing to get more on the right and remove the red line might, in my opinion take this image to another higher level. Wonderful scene.   Posted: 12/16/2019 07:47:50

I like your composition using the waves as leading lines from front to back.   Posted: 12/16/2019 17:33:35
