    I was out at a model shoot with the Digital Wedding Forum's convention while in Las Vegas. While there I had some free time to shoot around with my wife. This is a site that we came upon while in the desert.

    Makes a statement about Mans impact on nature .

    what to do with all the old monitors & TVS that are people are getting rid of as they upgrade.

    I dont think leaving them in the desert is the solution.

    Hey Biggs,

    I agree. I was really baffled to see it out there in the middle of the desert. I would love to figure out exactly how it got there as there was nothing else out there that I could see...absolutely nothing. The shot lent a very surreal perspective to me.

    This weekend, I am going to play with it a little bit and see if I cannot enhance the colors a bit. I just have not had time yet to really play - but I think the composition/subject matter is very interesting.

    Yeah ,I can see potential there. I couldnt tell ya how to do it ,but I can see it in my mind.

    A light area around the Tv ,bumped up color saturation alittle & darkened area behind the tv & work the clouds . Could be cool.

    I am thinking about using Roman Johnston's method for HDR images on it so I can bump up my shadow and midtones without losing sky saturation. This is what happened when I did a quick curves on it earlier.
