    Hey Everyone,

    My wife and I just got back from an 11 day tour of California and Nevada. 4 days in Pasadena, 4 days in Las Vegas and 3 days in Death Valley. These are a couple of shots from my trip to Death Valley. The weather was perfect - but it was very hot (for me, at least). I will be working on an article of the trip, but it won't get posted for another couple of weeks, so I figured I would share some stuff early. :)

    Cheers
    James

    James,
    Excellent shots. Great use of color. Nice composition, especially on the 2nd one.

    I love the contrast. Did it really look that way, especially the 2nd one?

    Hi Masa,

    Yes, it did look this way...at least mostly. I generally don't play with my photographs in photoshop that much. While I have no problem playing with light compensation and compressing the curves a bit, I think it goes against the grain of what I do to play too much with the files (not that I have a problem with others who do it...just not for what I do).
