Love this shot, really do.
The sepia colours you've used are perfect for it.
Just goes to show great shots can still be taken by what is considered a 'crap' lens.
Well done. Deserved the red!

By FAR my favorite over the winner, sometimes I don´t understand the results of DPC, think this should have won even though the winner shot isn´t bad at all, just think this one is much better. Like it enough to put it in my favorites, awesome composition!

Wow! Could any place really BE that striking! And its amazing that you weren't even aware of the challenge when you shot it. I always get good challenge shots unexpectedly just beFORE the time deadline.

Congratulations on this amazing photo and a red ribbon!!!

Congrats on your second ribbon in a week. Both great pictures. Not to be a nitpicker but "The Wave" is across the border in Arizona and not in Utah. While hiking you crossed the State line. :)

06/26/2006 12:28:58 AM
Arpita: you are a refreshing wave here at DPC. Wonderful image! Congratulations on your RED!

Hard to get a pass into The Wave. They take reservations months in advance. How did you manage to get in. It is a world class photo op.

06/25/2006 11:14:47 PM
Love the shot, where was it taken? Could you post a color version?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2006 11:09:05 PM
Nice lines, one of my top picks
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2006 10:05:55 PM
Very cool... another one of those places I want to visit someday. I suspect this will at least make the top 10, simply for its uniqueness (hope that's a word). :) EXCELLENT.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2006 02:44:12 PM
the lines and shadows are amazing! i like the monocrome but it leaves me wondering what great color i am missing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/25/2006 09:38:33 AM

Sweet curves and composition. This should do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 06:18:06 PM
Beautiful place, I wonder where it is? Great play of lines, a tack more sharpness in the foreground would have been nice. Still, very good, feels like a desolate place to me!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2006 07:36:00 PM
Amazing image. Love the lines and the tones. Bumping up two spots to a 9

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2006 01:30:57 PM
Great shot! I'm guessing this wins!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/20/2006 10:23:06 AM
Beautiful. One of my top picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 07:36:51 PM
This is a stunning photograph. The only improvement that could have been made would have been to widen the depth of field (hyperfocal), to get those lines in the foreground as sharp as the rest - I love the patterns that they make. Not enough of a criticism to affect my scoring though - it's a brilliant photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 07:20:42 PM
Honestly, I am having trouble seeing desolation. In other words is it half full, or half empty. I can not tell. So, I'll give it to ya.

An amazing image. Excellent comp, excellent movement, excellent lines, blacks a bit too deep, and whites barely in because of this technicallity not perfect, minimalistic feel, great lighting, excellent texture, maybe a bit soft on the right hand shadowed area but not disturbingly,

06/19/2006 02:44:23 PM
Wow, very well done. Great that you included a person to give a sense of scale.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2006 02:07:38 PM
Arty desolation. But bereft of all except the viewer and the hiker. It fits. Nice location.

06/19/2006 08:26:47 AM
Oh! Most excellent tonal and compositional work here...fantastic work.
