About the Image(s)

This photo was taken last weekend in Scottsdale, AZ. The scene is the lake that runs along Chaparral Park. My Mavic Pro was only about 50 ft above the lake. This low resolution image was downloaded to my iPhone in real-time which is my controller display. Apparently, the downloaded image does not contain any EXIF data. I have not uploaded the original memory card file yet.

The image was edited in Lightroom Classic. As you can see the horizon is not straight. I chose to leave it for this image. I suspect my camera is slightly misaligned. I will straighten the original memory card vision

I agree with the composition. Didn't notice the horizon. Wish the sand was a bit less contrasty, but it is Arizona.   Posted: 11/04/2020 08:25:07

I like like saturated and high contrast images in general. Many photographers do not. I suspect I am in the minority.   Posted: 11/06/2020 12:12:26

Yes, I think the composition is quite nice. I like how the river leads my eye into the image.   Posted: 11/04/2020 17:26:10
