p.1 #2 · p.1 #2 · Red Rock Canyon National Preserve


Some quick thoughts: feel free to take them or leave them...

First: need to get rid of the vignetting and sensor dust at the top left.
Second: same dust on the top right and dust/bird on the right side.
Third: Looks like some cloning repeats in the clouds, especially the little bit of white sticking up into the blue about in the middle
Fourth: like the processing here--a little more restrained.

My preference would be to dial down the saturation and contrast a touch, but that's a preference/style thing for you to decide. I think my favorite is the second with the beautiful light on the mountains.

Hey Jon,

You did a nice job here on capturing Red Rock. #1 and 4 are my favorites. I like how you framed #1, not always easy to have framing like that work, but I like it.

Very dramatic lighting. All of my shots there were on cloudless days and yours are super.

Dave,

Thanks for the suggestions and compliments. I cleaned the sensor today and there were a couple of specks of dust. Thanks again.

Enjoy them all, #2 and #3 were my favorites though. Very dramatic and eye catching images. Proving you don't need an onslaught of color to make a great image.

Great shots,

Andy

Okay Dave,

I'm new to LR and I made corrections based on your recommendations:


First: need to get rid of the vignetting and sensor dust at the top left







Second: same dust on the top right and dust/bird on the right side.







Third: Looks like some cloning repeats in the clouds, especially the little bit of white sticking up into the blue about in the middle
