Great shots added. I love the colors, the detail, and the contrast.

James, I like the cowboy picture, most times the composition and the scene make the photo and the camera is just the tool for capturing it.

Macbook thanks for viewing!

here's another sunrise picture with some heavy post processing (maybe a little too much) what I find weird is the horizon is curved - I am assuming this is distortion from the lens but wanted opinions.

And here's the desert view with river and clouds I have been working on brightening and sharpening per Bob's suggestion. I've tried a number of times and even tried working on the foreground, middle-ground and sky, adjusting each separately and I seem to always end up at something unnatural. Very hard this post processing stuff is

While I can get more detail out of the canyon it is at the expense of the shadows and brightness, i.e. highlights and lowlights are lost. Anyways this is the best I have done so far.

p.s. this is straight from the camera JPEG (I was shooting JPEG + RAW and have been processing the raw)

okay some more grand canyon pics if nobody minds. I think my pp is getting better.

Sunrise yavapi point sharpened, highlights strengthened, shadows filled, also corrected for lens distortions and vignetting.

and I had to try a HDR of the same image. took the RAW file corrected for lens distortions and vignetting, then saved five copies with the exposure adjusted in steps; 0, .3, .7, -.3, -.7 as though I had done EV bracketing. Loaded the pictures into the HDR software and went to work from there.

Not sure I needed to cause I like the first one...

486 is a great shot with that particular cloud formation. Nice job!
