About the Image(s)

This is another shot from the Utah badlands. Taken with my Nikon Z7. 24mm 1/50 sec at f9. I did use HDR but kept it more natural. Added contrast and tweaked it a bit through the TK8 panel in PS.

The light reflection on the nearest rock formation really draws you into the scene. I wonder if you could bring more cloud structure out of the sky‚Ķthe colors are beautiful and it looks as though there is "more there". You did a nice job on using HDR, looks natural. For my eye, I would slightly lighten the foreground to capture those lower rock formations. You have a sensor spot in the upper right, which you can easily remove. A striking image.   Posted: 01/10/2022 15:58:48

A wonderful image of a sweeping landscape and you photographed it so as to really accentuate the vastness of the valley. The sun catching on that rock formation is so catching! I agree with Mary that a darker sky to contrast with the light earth could make this image even more dynamic. By use HDR it really draws one into the photo by having such a long view all in crisp detail. How many frames/exposures did you use to achieve this?   Posted: 01/12/2022 11:32:52
