Congrats Drew! Both are very tastefully composed and skillfully exposed photos:cool::cool:Especially#1 is an unusual piece! I wish Icouldacquire such an imagethese days!

Hope you don't mind a few suggestion. The foreground looks a bit extra bright stealing from themagnificence ofclouds at the background, thereforemightneedselectingfor a slight highlight adjustment. Some yellow photo filter at PS. would give more dimension to thepicture which wouldend up like that ofan Ansel Adams, IMO!

Stunning photo!! Due to my surgery I have had to sleep in my recliner in the living room, most nights I find myself watching old black and white movies. Your first shot reminds me of the landscape in some of the old John Wayne movies I've watched over the past few weeks. Great work Drew, I think your going to the next level as far as photography is concerned!

Interesting to see the contrast between the B&W and color versions.

The color photo makes me think "scenic". It's a lovely capture of a beautiful place.

The B&W hits me as "dramatic". The increased contrast and lack of soothing color gives the photo such an elemental feel.

Both are great! :D

Thanks guys for taking a look and for your nice comments :-)

Bob, many of John Wayne's movies were filmed here. It's amazing that they could actually pull off a movie shoot in this desolate and isolated land. It's a beautiful and powerful area though and well worth a visit if you are ever in this part of the country.

Both great shots, very scenic, I wonder how they got the Indians

up on top of them in the movies :cool:

Hi Drew, I just love that b&w treatment. The high contrast gives the pic real punch that isn't there in the colour version. Great stuff.

Great shots Drew!! Like both versions. I wonder what this scene would look like in infrared....cheers.......Don
