Default Delicate Arch

I didn't find a picture of this popular spot in this forum. Can't believe it! Anyways, here's what a 3 year old Canon Powershot S10 can do. Picture taken at sunset, no software editing at all. I'm a bit ashamed to post it, there were some people there with amazing photo equipment (which they lugged up the 1.5 mile trail too :-))

Great shot even with an almost museum piece equipment, just kidding...
I'm constantly reminded of a comment once made by a famous photographer that, we haven't yet exhausted the possibilities of the Brownie camera. For those too young to remember the Brownie was originally marketed by Kodak many, many, moons ago and it was fixed focus, lens, exposure etc.. To be honest it was only marginally better than a pinhole camera, but folks turned out some brilliant photographs.

The most important thing is the person BEHIND the camera, they make the really outstanding pictures if you give them a hasselblad or a 1 MP camera.

Greetings,

I am never ashame to post one of my photos. I post them because I like the shot and that is who I am trying to please. Folks here will provide useful tips (and some not useful) that will help me enjoy my photos more. I like your shot and am glad you shared it.

Thanks guys. I played with Adobe Elements a bit, but decided to leave it as is. Having it auto color correct made the sandstone too red, that was not as how I remember it. Maybe you're familiar with this years national park pass, it has the same arch on it, but a bit too red and saturated in color for my taste.

Definitely a great shot. Such a shame we don't have that kind of scenery. The only thing I don't like about the picture is the fact that it's tilted. It is tilted right? :? Just my humble opinion I'm not an expert (not at all!). I really like the colors!

Hi Shoshone,

Thanks! Where do you live?

I don't think the image is tilted a lot, if at all. The terrain is slanted. The arch is standing on a slant that moves down to the right of the pictures. It actually gets pretty steep. I put two wider view images on pbase, maybe that'll give you a better idea. http://www.pbase.com/barthold/inbox

Awesome pic

No apologies needed!

If I let my eyes relax...then it appears as two
legs striding uphill.

I'm sorry, I thought it was tilted, but that's just the way it is! :lol:
I live in Holland, in Rotterdam. The only thing I can take pictures of are buildings...and buildings are boring
