About the Image(s)

I took THIS at Bryce Canyon N P. Most of them are sweeping landscapes.
This I have zoomed in to make it a narrower field and hopefully more interesting.

(note no info was available except used a 70-200mm lens)

AS I LOOK AT THIS IMAGE, I SEE YOU USED, MAYBE EARLY MORNING LIGHT, WHICH WAS GOOD(USUALLY LATE DAY YOU GET MORE HAZE THERE FROM THE HEAT), BUT WHATEVER, YOU DID GET THE SUNLIGHT DOWN LOW.
ONE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT YOUR POSITION WAS OR IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOU ANGLE, HAD YOU BEEN ABLE TO MOVE TO THE RIGHT,PERHAPS GETTING THE PINE TREE AND THE NATURAL ARCH, AND LESS OF THE BRIGHT BACKGROUND ON THE RIGHT MAY HAVE BEEN A BETTER COMPOSITION.
BUT THEN WE'RE NEVER IN THE PHOTOGRAHER'S SHOES.

NICE TO SEE BRYCE CANYON AGAIN

Dianne,
I love the lighting and composition. The pine tree helps me understand the magnitude, especially since I have never been there.   Posted: 11/15/2020 16:28:33

I like the zoomed in view and the color and light are gorgeous. I like the tree giving sense of size. To me the sliver of sky top left takes my eye out of the frame...maybe crop a bit off the top? The light on the hills behind is lovely but distracting. I wonder re either a slightly less narrow view to include them or cropping even lower to remove them...or maybe darken both the background rocks and sky sliver? Not sure what your aperture was but foreground rocks look pretty sharp but the tree is soft.   Posted: 11/15/2020 18:19:40

Hi Dianne, I've always wanted to go to Bryce Canyon - maybe some day. I like the zoomed in landscape. I would zoom in more to simplify the image. I would crop down from the top just to the tree line and up from the bottom about twice as much as you cropped from the top. The foreground rocks are sharp but the focus drops off fast after that. At first I thought maybe you had wind causing the tree to be out of focus but the small rocks at the base of the tree are out of focus too. Nice place can't wait to see other photos of Bryce you may want to share with us.   Posted: 11/30/2020 13:46:22
