About the Image(s)

I see beautiful patterns in natural erosion. Details add a little spice. I preferred the natural high sky over blackening it.

You have kept good detail in the contours of the landscape. I might try a sky replacement to add some interest.   Posted: 10/05/2021 15:02:22

I was hoping the contours and details would be sufficiently interesting and didn't want to add a distraction. Oh well! Thanks   Posted: 10/05/2021 17:41:20

The erosion channels are captivating. Especially the one on the left. I think the bright sky contrasts well with the dark rock along the top of the image. You could reduce both the brightness of the areas directly lit by the sun and darken the shadows falling on the middle and left channels. Nicely done.   Posted: 10/09/2021 12:58:16

An interesting viewpoint. I had deliberately opening those shadows to show more detail. I'll revisit it and consider darkening them a bit.
I'll definites darken the brightest highlights.
Thanks , as always.   Posted: 10/09/2021 15:37:51

I love the way the mound from the center front wraps around the one to the left. The shape on the right reminds me of a sphinx overlooking the scene. I like the sky as is and agree with a bit of darkening.

You have a good imagination. I like your Sphinx thought.   Posted: 10/12/2021 17:24:16
