  • You've got to be kidding me! I began reading your description and quit to say you're wrong. No picture is going to come close to what we stand and look at. We see, hear, and smell the place. All of our senses are alive and we capture the image, pull it off the camera and it's an image in lieu of the real thing. But, but, but, this is incredibly beautiful and the greyscale processing leave the eye to explore all the beautiful details. What are we gonna do with you?:-)

  • I don't think it's crappy at all. I realize there are more compositional elements in the foreground, but I'm really drawn to the sky and the darkness up there. It's very compelling and frames the shot nicely.

  • The problem with nature shots is that people think they are going to be an exact duplication of the beautiful landscape you see with your eye, whereas when you take a shot of something in the city, you don't expect that - you have an idea in mind based on something the image might evoke.

    This invites you to look at it and explore the impressions of light and the darkness and the movement.

  • Sherri made a wonderful comment there, I think that this is a great nature shot, too. The tilt of the land got me first, the subtle images like this one often have more of a long term impact for me.

  • nicely framed, just a thing, it is on my screen very dark...
    CushmoK @ 2009-03-02 01:45:35
  • great and interesting cooperation of light and darkness. i like your b&w conversion and the contrasts.
    Besim @ 2009-03-02 02:23:00
  • Interesting water flow. I think the images we see on photoblogs are not a copy of the exact place, they are pictures of how the man behind the camera imagine it should look like.

  • The b&w is superb. Awesome tonal range you have captured :)
    Pradeep @ 2009-03-02 04:57:19
  • so great contrast, love this place

  • You need a good slap with a wet halibut, Dustin and a good talking to from Sherri is a perfect stat.

    This is absolutely stunning my friend, perfection in mono, with so much detail that the eyes pick out as they roam the frame.

    Superb work

  • I have to agree with sherri, you are too critical of your work.
    clarence @ 2009-03-02 07:59:20
  • I echo the sentiments of Clarence, EYES WIDE SHUT, jo, & sherri. You've provided us with a fantastic photo of an awesome place:-)

  • Not crappy....not at all. A wonderful landscape. Love the textures..the layers of blacks whites and greys.
    Marcie @ 2009-03-02 10:33:50
  • Why do you think it needs a foreground element? It is lovely for what it is and the surfaces, lines and patterns are more than enough and balance the dark vegetation so well. Terrific nature shot!
    daina @ 2009-03-02 10:57:33
  • Bonsoir,
    I find the rather beautiful landscape.. as for your photo,tones are very good... "crappy" is a photographic subject to be searched..:-)
    jelb @ 2009-03-02 11:56:42
  • You got an excellent b_w and contrast control, difficult exercice with stones in the sun :)
    The photograph is very good, but I have a problem with the water, the main subject I guess: it is difficult to differenciate it from the rocks, except at right, but it remains an excellent landscape.
    Phototherapy @ 2009-03-02 13:31:45
  • Very grand landscape. The flow of water has certainly made the rock smooth, it’s cutting power must be supreme. Looks like it could spread across the rock quickly, be careful :)
    Andrew @ 2009-03-02 13:44:37
  • Very nice shot, love the angle of the land. Excellent tones and detail too. I'm sure it looks great in color but I think B&W makes this image look stunning.
    silas collins @ 2009-03-02 14:47:37
  • A nice contrast for this landscape.
    Calusarus @ 2009-03-02 15:04:55
  • A beautiful landscape shot. I love the vignette up top to go with the crisp, cool details. Excellent BW too!
    Liang @ 2009-03-02 15:17:51
  • Bonito paisaje en blanco & negro.
    Alex @ 2009-03-02 15:42:22
  • I think you are far to critical on yourself, Sherri said it so well, this is superb!!!
    JJ @ 2009-03-02 19:15:29
  • I agree with what Sherri said..
    Ivar @ 2009-03-02 19:59:54
  • This image is all about layers and expansion man. Formal exploration in photography is a solid thing. By shooting "x" subject matter we then have the ammo to say, "Nope. It ain't me."
    Chris Cardelli @ 2009-03-03 16:10:00
  • hah, crappy nature shot...unlike sherri i don't really think i can smell or feel the place..
    i do think the conversion is pretty exceptional though and easily the strongest aspect of this photo... i don't know how you would do it because i've failed at many times myself but there must be a way to get the highlights a bit more mellow at the sky/tree border...

  • What you wrote wwas actually ery logical. But, consiser this, suppose yoou were to wrikte a
    killer headline? I ain't saying your informatio is not good, hhowever wht if you added a title thawt makes people
    wannt more? I mean Thhe Perdenales | 6 1 3 p h o t o | is a littlpe vanilla.

    Yoou should peek at Yahoo's froont page and note how thery crreate news headlines to get ppeople tto opeen the links.
    Yoou might ttry adding a vixeo or a picture orr twwo to get peeople interested about everything've got to
    say. In myy opinion, it couod make your posts a litttle bit morfe interesting.
