    Taken early this past summer. I wonder if the sky couldn't be improved? Any other comments?

    The only thing about the sky, I don't know if it's in the 100% size picture, but it has some artifacting. Awesome shot otherwise.
     
  3. I like the sky; the image as a whole is neatly divided into thirds, with the foreground and the two areas of sky varying in tone and color. Neat shot - I grew up about 15 miles from the GSD NM.

    thanks for the comments guys. I was wondering if burning in the upper left corner would make it stronger, like this...

    Nice shot(s). I think they both look good, but the 1st sky, with its darker right side, balances the dark sand on the left, to me. What lens?

    Thanks. I hadnt thought of that. It was taken with the sigma 10-20mm. I love that lens.
