About the Image(s)

From our trip around some the national parks and this was found at Rhyolite near Death Valley. It was 44 degree C at 4.00pm. quite hot. Rhyolite is a deserted gold mining village that only had a short life, it started on 1903 and closed down in 1911, and these statues were on display there. They were made by Albert Szukalski and are part of a long tableau of the last supper. Lighting was very harsh taken at 1/640 at f13 iso 200 and focal length of 64mm

Brian, Your image is very clean and sharp and has nice depth of field. For images like this, I would usually add a 3D sky from my library. Your composition shows the statures well behind the window. Well done.....Good Title.........   Posted: 06/13/2020 17:24:28

Very nice image. The image has nice depth, lighting and sharpness. The details are available in bright and shadow areas. Good work.   Posted: 06/24/2020 10:49:59

Boy! you wouldn't want to see this on a dark night with only a full moon to light the white sheets of the ghosts. How is this part of a tableau of the last supper? It's interesting that the light part of the ghost on the right seems to be out in front but the dark part of the shadow seems to be back inside. Is that the way it is? All the rest of the ghosts have all the dark part inside them. The background is so far back I can't fuse on it with both eyes. A little more background on each side could help that.   Posted: 06/24/2020 16:55:53

I have attached a shot of the whole statue, as you can see my shot was just part of it and is straight so the lighting is all natural. All three parts were concave   Posted: 06/25/2020 15:53:06

Great hyper image of the subject, but the background is far beyond normal parallax. It's hard to look at as it is, but as stated above could look much better as part of a composite.   Posted: 06/28/2020 22:01:05
