Challenge: Straight from the Camera (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot SD550
Location: Big Cottonwood Canyon, Bulter Fork Trail head.
Date: Jul 1, 2006
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Jul 2, 2006

I just got my SD550 and went on a hike yesterday taking the new camera with me (the D60 is to heavy and I don\\\'t want to break it).

I took several photos during the hike, and came home to see the speed challenge so thought what the heck.

This is a ridge line hike.

--AFTER

I knew my sense of humor on this one would cost me, thanks to those that got the humor, thanks for the comments and views and votes.

Bold move, entering a sideways shot. Good picture.

Difficult to score this - being that the presentation is side-ways. Appears to be a nice picture when bending my neck 90 degrees. I know you probably get the point. Nice landscape composition.

Did you fall off the cliff?

Or is this a possums perspective?

Interesting perspective. I like it even better when I turn my head 90 degrees.

Works OK on my laptop since I can turn the screen. :-) Really a nice picture, too.

A nice photo, but I think a subject that would work in a landscape orientation might have been a better choice if your camera doesn't auto rotate for you. I won't score you lower for that, though I imagine others will. I'll just rotate my monitor! It is quite a lovely scene, although the blown out clouds and the dead branches in front are a bit distracting.

While I suppose I could make the effort to rotate my laptop or download the photo and rotate it myself for evaluation this begs the question, "Why should I?"

I will evaluate it as is as best I can. This is sort of a drab landscape. The rolling hills in the background have potential but at this time of year there isn't much "wow" factor. Perhaps shooting at a time of day with more dramatic lighting would add visual interest, perhaps early in the morning with mist rising. Or during a dramatic sunset which would add some color and contrast to the shadows in the hills. I would also have tried very hard to eliminate the dead branches from the composition. The contrast in color and texture immediately draws my eye to that part of the frame. The scruffy conifer at the side of the frame isn't working hard enough as a framing element, if that is what it was chosen for. If this was the best the foreground had to offer, it might have been better to skip a foreground element and concentrate on the hills.

Uh...interesting composition :) This shot might have done a bit better if it were rotated :) Aside from that, I like the way the green grass and blue sky play together. Not sure I like the branches in the bottom of the shot though.
