This photo was taken back in February. It was taken from an overlook of the path that leads into the main part of the park.

This would be a great shot on a travel brochure to promote Garden of the Gods. The path certainly leads the eye into the image and the two pedestrians illustrate visitors to the park.   Posted: 06/08/2020 14:14:09

It's a good presentation with road leads your view to the center of the park. I wish to stand on a higher point to take the shot to see more road.   Posted: 06/08/2020 14:35:42

I love this image, Marla, and wouldn't change a thing.   Posted: 06/08/2020 19:00:26

How cool to get snow at this place. You captured a lovely pink cloud too. Ideas: Even thought the hill on the right is longer, the lighter colored rocks on the left draw my eye. I see many competing focal points, the jagged hills, the path, the people, the hill on the left and that tender pink cloud in the sky. Maybe cropping in a bit on the left would give more dominance to the right side of the photo. Just crop out the dirt or gravel part to the left of the rocks, and into the rock a bit. And then maybe a bit off the right side too to direct me more down that pathway. That moves my eyes easily down the path and up to that beautiful delicate sky. I wouldn't mind a bit of saturation either, though the cloud seems perfect already. nice.   Posted: 06/27/2020 16:23:02

Very nice! I like the tunnel feeling between the rocks and the leading line of the path. The pink cloud gives us a feel for the time of day. The only slight thing I might like to see is lighten the shadows a bit on the foreground rocks on the right and the tree on the left. I think it would allow me to appreciate those 2 parts more and not skip passed them to the lighter rocks in the back. I really like the capture.   Posted: 06/28/2020 16:19:46

Well done. I think Trinda is correct about cropping on the right, perhaps 10-15 percent. The curve of the road will become visually more powerful.   Posted: 06/30/2020 04:23:33
