p.1 #1 · Death Valley - Dante's View for the New Year


Howdy all,

My wife and I took a trip out to Death Valley over the New Year (first time over to the race track. Hurray!). This was New Year's morning, so it was delightfully freezing. Any C&C on processing, comp, etc welcome and appreciated.

Tim

Fantastic! This can be a very magical place. I was there in November 2011 with some similar conditions, with a narrow band of light across the Panamints. I love that you were able to get some foreground sun in the bottom pic. Well done.

The second one for me. The Panamints are lit up very nice, juxtapose tho the dark looking snow caps and sky. Nice lines in the shot. Rick

Both are nice, but the 2nd is very special. Great work.

Thanks all! Just as an aside, does #2 look radioactive to some people? I just looked at it in Explorer and it looks terrible (Chrome it looks fine).

I was really happy with the quick show of light before the sun went behind the thicker clouds in #2. Unfortunately, later in the day the Race Track skies were bald.

Number two is a smoker! Especially the way the light is hitting those rocks in the foreground.

The second one really does a great job showing the vast scale of this place. I love the quality of light on the mountains, and the fact that it's only a sliver. Did you try waving and seeing if you could see your shadow on the Panamints?

Thanks AMaji, Bill, and Ben! I didn't try waving to see myself on the Panamints, but I did pose with my leg lining up with my tripod. It would've been a good self-portrait with my obvious form, but a less good landscape photo.

I do have a number of 24mm lenses, don't I... For both shots, I used my 24 tilt shift. For #1, I used it with a 1.4x teleconverter, so it's actually 33.6mm, and f/11 (TS-Es take converters, but don't recognize them electronically). #2 was shifted a few mm down, and tilted 1 or 2 degrees downward.
