Self portrait mdde along old road section of this trail just outside of Casper, WY. Been hiking this trail a lot lately for exercise and wanting to photograph it, so when this challenge came up it seemed like a natural. Very contrasty time, near noon, so underexposed heavily and then bungied a Nikon SB-25 (1/4 power from camera left)with radio trigger to a tree to add a bit of fill light on subject. PP=Adjustments to levels, curves, brightness/contrast and color, then just sharpen and resize.

It is my opinion that the photo would probably score higher without the person in the photo. But what do I know, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the photography work that I can see.

I like the color balance and compositional balance and it makes me want to go along too.

Nice, you might have liked to take this in morning light to get some nice, warm tones.
