a strange outcrop of rock near Bakewell in the peak district.

was a quick look-see trip, plan to go back later in better light, so just quick photos plus it was just about the chuck it down :)

converted in capture NX, first time i've used this in anger before, quite like it and like the conversion, much better then lightroom or even aperture.

before importing into aperture and processing with cs3 curves and stuff and it's ready :)

First Impressions
A good selection of rocks/boulders, but the trees are getting in the way.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
You used Capture NX in anger, interesting - I'm sure you're not the first. You say you will go back later in better light, that might allow you to take a different vantage point to minimise the trees and shrubbery a little better. Perhaps a change of lens is in order, especially to focus better on the rocks. The most interesting area seems to be at the top, so my eyes are interested to see more detail there.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
52/82 is not that great, but I'm guessing you are there because nothing 'jumps out' in the image to hold a viewer's attention long enough to explore the image. Your commenters like the scene and most seem to like the greenery mixed in.

For me, much stronger for this Challenge with less greenery, maybe even a bold crop off the bottom to allow the top area to dominate more, if the quality was there in your image to allow that, which it does appear to be.

I really like the composition of this shot, the greens and greys of the landscape work really well here.

Interesting rock formation. I like that the trees look to be completely taking over.

Interesting location - looks like 'nature's knurled knob'

a really cool location - a bit over sharpened
