About the Image(s)

The Chiricahau National Monument is noted for their hoodoos and balancing rocks. While hiking on one of the trails I notice how Diane was standing in a bright spot and was a good comparison against the tall rock features. Just minor touch up in Snapneed.

The human in the image sure gives the hoodoos a perspective on their size.That feeling of the dimensions makes a fine image and that she's in the sun worked out well.   Posted: 05/04/2021 15:59:03

Love this image Dave. I totally agree with Sol. Having your wife model gives the viewer a size perspective that clears the mind gives your image a much stronger impact. Great lighting with everything in it's place. It was almost like having a theatre spotlight on Diane. I like the green moss or algae on the hoodoos. This is a keeper.

Great shot. We all see the size of the rocks better because your spouse is there. A keeper as Jerry says.   Posted: 05/05/2021 10:57:06

I can't add much to what the others have said. Diane's position in the sunlight gives scale and context to your image. The clear, dry, Arizona sky is very blue. The focus is sharp. It's a good all-around image showing the beauty of the outdoors. It's a postcard.

I use to not want people in my images but I have found that having people or a person as a small part of an image really adds to the composition and perspective. You had a great model and it really shows the height of the rock formations. Great catch.   Posted: 05/09/2021 15:38:52

Your wife, dabbled in light and gazing at fascinating hoodoos (had to look up in dictionary), definitely another vacation pix to print and frame. Like how the grey of the rock offset by lichen and blue sky. Beautifully seen and captured.   Posted: 05/10/2021 07:31:09
