About the Image(s)

I was in Death Valley in November 2021 and hiked about a half mile into the area beyond Zebrinskie Point. Looking back provided a view of multicolored rock formations. I took numerous images there, but this is one of my favorites after seeing it printed 40 inches wide. I could return to Death Valley numerous times...

Canon R5, 24-105 f4 L lens, ISO 500, 105mm, f11, 1/200 sec.

I like the transition from bright in the front to dark in the back. No sky - good choice!. Hard to say how far you are or how big the hills are. Good shot   Posted: 03/02/2023 19:33:24

Very interesting image. You captured great light and nice subtle colors. It hard to tell the size of these rocks. At first I thought I was looking at hills. I think it might help to have something or someone in the image to provide perspective and scale.   Posted: 03/07/2023 13:00:38

This is very much a "classic" shot of this area. The lack of sky is really a must as it would be bright and take away from the colors in the ricks. What I really like is you have separated the various colors and each of them stand out to claim its rightful place. The various textures are a bonus. My only suggest would be to increase the blacks slightly and add a bit of drama   Posted: 03/12/2023 09:42:39

That's a very striking image! I agree with Larry that increasing the blacks would add a little more drama.   Posted: 03/18/2023 13:14:58

Nice color, texture and variation with the rock formations. Well exposed and composed. Nicely done.   Posted: 03/21/2023 13:50:40
