Great stuff Gordon. I really like the shots with the water in sections in the foreground of the images.


Thank you. The water is pretty rare in that area, but there due to all of the flooding last year. Normally those regions are dry, white salt flats.

Lovely shots, Gordon. PDF is a great format for this, I've been thinking of doing something similar with my print portfolio. It looks like some were taken with a fisheye, no? The 17-40 isn't really wide enough for me to get what I want sometimes. Thoughts on your lens choices/needs while you were there?

Magnificent collection - worthy of a wider audience than DPC.

Awesome shots, I wish it let me save as a screensaver/ wallpaper.

Just fabulous photos.

It was almost all 17-40 on the D60, with some 70-200, 100mm macro and 200+1.4x tele for the really long range shots.

That's a good idea - I might look in to making one from them.

Great shots G. I like how your incorporated both strong foregrand and background elements in most of your photos. I especially like thte color photographs. Sounds like you had a great workshop.

The back/forth rhythm was a big aspect of the wide angle compositions that I was really trying to learn - good to hear it is paying off! I think in a lot of cases it is a bit too obvious and not really subtle enough but I'm only just learning. This was my first attempt at anything approaching real landscape photography, so there was a huge amount to learn in a really short, intensive space of time.

Fabulous group of images you created, Gordon! Thanks for sharing. Cheers....Martin

Thank you everyone for your comments. I really appreciate them and am glad I could share these pictures with you. It might not look it, but putting together this simple pdf turned in to quite the labour of love, taking close to 2 months to get finished.

Did want to add to this, I really don't find the 17-40 wide enough on a D60 either. The quality is great but just not enough sweep for really grand scale landscapes. I played around with a 14mm sigma when I was out there as well, but the 1.6 crop just kills it every time. I'm looking to get a camera with a lower crop factor to fix this soon.

Man o man. That was one sweet package.

Gordon,
Those are AWESOME photos. I think you could sell each and every one of those. Just truly fantastic work!
