I had several Gb of images from the last fall vacation. I processed some and then I re-read Ron's ebook and also looked at other's landscape images. So I went back those files and processed/reprocessed some.

The following one was discarded at the beginning. Tonight I looked at it again and I thought it had some elements I liked, the light, the cloud, the colorado river, and of course the red rock mountains.

Isn't Raw wonderful!

I also recently changed my workflow, much to my likeing. I've got to get around to documenting it all, but now I do the highlights with ACR using the ideas in Fraser's book, then the shadows like Ron shows in his ebook. And I'm still evolving the perfect sharpening scheme.

Recently I redid a shot I did a year ago at ISO 6400 - and it wasn't bad!

I'd like to see some of your older stuff reprocessed. I remember an early 'pseudo IR' shot you did that I thought had a lot of unrealized power. I dunno. Maybe I just see things wierd.

I tried my D2H with B+W IR filter the other day. D2H seems to be a good camera for IR photos, too.

Goodness . . .

. . . that's a wonderfully dramatic shot of the canyon with an unusual amount of river showing! I have to confess that the location isn't immediately clear to me. Were you at Desert View (the place with the tower about 25 miles from the village)?

Regards,

Mike

Re: Goodness . . .

Glad you all like it. Thanks.

To Mike,

Yes it was taken at Desert View. I remember it was west side of the Tower. The storm was imminent and there were very few people over there. I was able to place half of my tripod outside of the railing near the cliff tip. It was great experience.
