About the Image(s)

This was an in camera panorama, my preferred way to see the SW.

Converted in Nik Silver Efex Pro, Only the sky was locally adjusted in Lightroom 6 and clarity was raised to 100 to emphasize and differentiate the rock types that are so varied in this Park.

Google Pixel 4XL, ISO 77, 27mm 35mm equivalent, 1/4700

Hi Jerry,
I came across your photo in my review of this months submissions. An acquaintance of mine is in your group.
I would like your permission to copy and edit your color photo and send you a copy. If not I will honor your wishes. It is a terrific photo of the west which I love. I will not use the photo for anything else.   Posted: 11/01/2021 21:35:54

I am very interested in seeing your edited version, and have no objection to your using it for any legal purpose.
You may be interested in seeing my Aug. 2021 creative image in DDG 20.   Posted: 11/01/2021 23:12:34

I thought initially that this was a negative. That impression is enhanced by the black sky.   Posted: 11/11/2021 10:02:31

I like your image very much. I like it both in the original color as well as in the black and white with the black and white really being very striking. The layers within the image created by the tones of the rocks and slopes and steep terrain changes are so interesting. While being obviously a landscape there's almost an abstract quality within the image because of the characteristics, textures and tones of the terrain. Well done   Posted: 11/17/2021 10:29:26

Yes, I look for patterns and details for abstract qualities   Posted: 11/17/2021 21:40:09

Sorry, but it doesn't "float my boat". I suppose it looks much like an infra-red, and I'm known for not liking those usually. The detail is interesting, and I see John's observations too, but I'd have liked something to stand out and focus my attention. Sorry!   Posted: 11/17/2021 16:40:37

My eye wants to study all the sharp detail of the alternating bands of the primarily dark and light rock as they recede. I never heard of the Google Pixel 4XL. Certainly better than any pano I've taken with my iPhone: I thought you had stitched together multiple vertical shots, tho I don't know whether PS would align such fine detail.   Posted: 11/20/2021 18:07:39

I recently upgraded to. The Google 6Pro. It's major advances are the 150% larger sensor and the 10x optical telephoto lens that out performs all others. It maintains sharp detail by automatically stacking 19 images and applying its AI.
I may sell all my pro lenses and cameras because of its high dynamic range and AI. You can even change the focus point!
It's editing app also outperforms Lightroom!   Posted: 11/21/2021 09:24:13
