With a blue sky and white, puffy clouds and smooth water... it was good to be in the high desert.

Did you take this one in RAW Charlie? If so, I would try to capture a bit more highlight detail. For the rest a lovely dramtic scene.

It's a beauty Charlie - I like the deep reflection and the clouds although a couple of spots look a little blown on my screen.

Hi Charlie,

Nice composition.

However the highlights are totally blown out in both the Tufa's and the cloud highlights and it's so over sharpened that it ruins the image. It's a shame as this could be a very nice.

As I've said before to you, you have some cracking images but your processing of them really needs a lot of work.

I shoot with contrasty slide film.
No excuse- just fact.

Thanks Puma, Helen, Phil, Jo and Sergey.
No RAW- I shoot Kodak slide film that I scan. Hot spots (and very dar shadows) sometimes present processing problems when I scan slides, because in truth there is nothing there for me to deal with. I can sometimes manufacture detail- but I don't like to very often.
Then, of course, there are the multitudes of variables with people's preferences and all the differences between monitors and software. Photographers way more skilled than I have admitted that there are so many variables that it's almost impossible for anyone to say "that is right," or "that is wrong." It's too subjective.

Thanks, Nigel, for finally understanding that I am HOPELESS.
Cheers.
Charlie
