Thanks to everyone who posted feedback on these photos!
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?
It was a single shot using a 2-stop grad. I edited it in Lightroom and did a little dynamic range blending in Photoshop.
Thanks for your comments!

A very tough place to get a meaningful shot. And you have 4. I've watched my buddy Mike K compose with the same lens, and his tv sized LCD, and I get how tricky it is to use, but what marvelous results. Fro me the BW speaks much about that severe landscape, that is pretty deviod of color.
Mike is the low angle tilt master! I really enjoy his work. Thanks for your comment Tim!

Terrific stuff, Fred ("stuff" is a technical term, don'cha know?) .
As you and others have stated, for all its fascination, the jagged ruggedness of those salt-edged clumps of dried clay is extremely hard to convey in two dimensions.
Somehow you've managed it here.
I'd like to say it was all because of your tilt/shift lens (I don't have one ), but that would be less than honest, I suspect.
Regardless, these images (especially the last one, imo) do the trick especially well.
Yes, tilting the plane of focused helped getting the detail I wanted from the salt crystals while giving me a good resolution on the furthest mountains. You should try it!
