| p.1 #11 · A different view of Mesa Arch |
this is a scene I am not familiar with, and a location I have not seen. And i do not frequent the Landscape forum where I am sure many variations have been presented through the years.
Apart from whether this is the ideal or classic view, this is a powerful, engaging, well-captured and beautiful image. I am not sure how to usefully critique it. I love the layering of silhouetted and distant shapes, the lighting. I like the framing by the arch.
What I am less sure about is the prominent color and visual weight of the top of the arch. I might be tempted to experiment with reducing the saturation on the arch and cropping a bit from the top. Probably not what you had in mind, but I would also consider a BW interpretation since you have a nearly monotonal image then framed with color. Pushing the opposite direction, as Karen has, creates a very different image, its own strong mood and statement. A matter of goal, taste, natural vs vivid, shape and light vs shape, light and color, muted vs Wow.
