p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Devil's Golf Course (4)


Hi everyone,
Here are 4 versions of one of my favorite locations in Death Valley.
Some were taken on the same day and the Canon 17mm tilt and shift lens was used for all photos.
Comments appreciated!

Nice set Fred. I like two and three the most. The b & w has a very pleasing composition. On number three the texture looks touchable. Amazing.

Lovely.

Did you have flare issues with the third shot? The TS-E 17 is very susceptible when pointed anywhere in the direction of the sun.

Fred, all are of these are really good landscapes but I am super impressed with the last two. You managed to do the nearly impossible by combining great landscapes with closeups showing the jagged edges of salt.

Hey Fred,

Cool work here. The Devil's Golf Course is one of those area's that I had stopped shooting in DV. It just seemed that I couldn't get a shot that I was happy with. I like what you got here, with #2 and 3 being my favorites.

Now, I will say though that on this last trip, I decided to try and shoot the Golf Course again instead of driving by it like normal... I think I have a couple that will look good, but I like what you got here, these definately inspire me to work on them, and not just to let them gather dust on my hard drive...

Very nice photos Fred.

I've always had a hard time coming away with good photos from the golf course. It always gives me a hard time as I find it harder to create a composition than bad water. I really like the BW. Just the textures from the ground and the sky are so interesting.

For the colored photos, did you single shot filter or blended multi exposures?

Thanks Ed!
Flare was an issue on this one and this was the only frame without it. This picture was taken right before the sun went down.
Best,
Fred

I think number 3 is fantastic. Great color and texture in the foreground, and a very rich image overall. Fantastic work.

Fred,

I like them all.

A note on the first one; I think I would like it better if the photo had been taken a few minutes earlier (or later?) so that the sun fully illuminated the mountain range in the background, rather than having the shadow halfway up. I also might tweak the blues a little bit in 1, 3, and 4.

T think I like the B&W the best, though they're all very nice. Maybe even more contrast. Really gives one a feel for why they call it Death Valley.

Excellent series, Fred. I'm really drawn to your b&w image the most. Great work!

I have never been to Devils Golf Course in DVNP, I now understand it's name much better. Hate to be looking for my ball in all that mess. Very nice set, The B & W stands out to me... love them white clouds filling the sky. If and when I ever go back I think I might have to bring a flagstick with me just to complete the title. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Chuck,
I personally have difficulty shooting this location. I want to show the salt crystal and the mountains/sky. I found that a tilt and shift lens aids towards that goal. Thanks for your comment!
