Challenge: Free Study 2007-04 (Expert Editing*)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f/4.0G IF-ED
Location: Antelope Canyon, Arizona
Date: Apr 28, 2007
Aperture: f8
ISO: 100
Shutter: Bulb
Galleries: Abstract, Landscape
Date Uploaded: Apr 29, 2007

In camera settings for vivid saturation and moderate contrast. In PP, slight bump in Saturation, 3%, and Contrast 2-3%, and Healing brush on some inperfections in the foreground.

This shot is taken in Antelope Canyon, toward the end of the slot. I love the way the backlight highlights the circular fins.

Taken during the Red Rock GTG, as those who have been watching the thread will have guessed. I hope you like it. I do!

Wonderful shot Becky. This seems like an unusually fascinating place.

Well, it was your favorite "corner". Since it is a bit abstract, it is really hard to translate what we saw to photography.

it's not that ths is a perticularly bad shot, but i think it's odd that you go to such an oppurtune location, and come out with this

I don't get tired of Red Rock canyons. You have captured a nice subtle repetition of form.

Nice texture and wonderful color. Your choices made while composing this work well as I really like the way the light moves from top left down into the image. Wish I didn't have to scroll down to see the whole thing.

Cool! It might be nice if so much of the picture weren'tjust the flat "boring" part of the rock. ("boring" in comparison with the rest of the rock, I mean! :P) Perhaps you should crop a little off the bottom. Very pretty shot though! :)
