Momentary Distraction by Rhavethstine Momentary Distraction by Rhavethstine
I still think Tiger described Monument Valley best in Fieval Goes West, "I'm lost and all alone in a million acre catbox." :ohnoes:

Not that I was lost or alone - or even thinking of Fievel Goes West - when I took this. But there you have it. :|

Great compostion, well done! Looks a bit dark in the top left, but whether or not that's a problem is a matter of taste, really.

only for your advanced critique, I noticed the horizon is a tad off, otherwise perfect!

I struggled with that in my mind as well. The horizon actually does bow down towards the San Juan in that direction, which is what I was struggling with. Even so, you're right. Could probably stand to go counter-clockwise a degree or two, judging by those plateaus on the left of the horizon, which should probably be pretty parallel with the top of the frame. Thanks for your thoughts, anon. :)

I especially like the range of color in the sky and the clear dirt feel to the bright rock, making itself seen in the foreground.

Does it take much editing to get the composition to look this good, or do you start with fairly impressive contrasts etc. with your SLR?

Rhavethstine Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2008
The colors can be pretty vivid to begin with. In some cases I tone them down or shift them towards a more accurate color. I shoot in RAW, so the contrast straight out of the camera isn't all that impressive (that's what Curves is for). A RAW file has been compared to a film negative by some, but in addition allows you to compensate for white balance and slight exposure errors. It allows you a bit more creative freedom and edit ability than your standard JPEG.

Brilliant composotion and lighting. I'd try and give some "advanced critique" but I'd just be redundant.

Awesome, as always! :D

Well, of course, the image is fine.
It's just that with some images,
I get these David Muench moments
where I envision—
for example, here—
that the flowering bush IS the foreground
rather than simply being in the foreground.

:iconrhavethstine:
Rhavethstine Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Most definitely. The shadowplay and "burning" bush in the foreground is what makes the image if you ask me. The rock in the background on its own would have been supremely boring. ;p

Gorgeous shot.

And I must say also a somewhat surreal one, the clouds make the outcrop look a bit like a smokestack :p
