p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Something different at Horseshoe Bend


I took this photograph a few years ago on a trip to Page and recently re-edited it so I thought I'd share. I knew I wasn't going to photograph in early morning or late evening and I wanted to get something a little different, so I decided to bring along my converted Nikon to get a infrared black and white image (which I hadn't seen from this location at the time). I wanted to get maximum printability, but the converted Nikon I was using at the time was not very impressive. To combat this, I photographed it similar to a checkerboard, using 4 frames x 4 frames for a total of 16 images (blended together in PS). After cropping, I was able to achieve a 40MP image, that I can print at 30x30 with great results.

Let me know what you think! Comments & critiques welcome.

-John

A spectacular B & W, I'm sure it will make a wonderful print.

John, I like this image a good deal, although I don't think it is really something very different from other fine images made of this place.different

Yeah, I agree. I think I should have written the title differently. It's the same view as everyone else and compositionally it isn't much different. I was only referring to my approach at photographing this icon. Using a checkerboard infrared process was something that I hadn't tried or seen at the time and I thought it was a little different.

Thanks! I have the older edit as a 25x25 hanging above my desk and the detail is amazing (although too much dodging and burning in my previous workflow, hence the re-edit).

I was proud of the image because I've found that it's tough to get that level of detail in infrared without accidentally clipping highlights.

Wow, beautiful. The subtle light play on the cliffs caused by the clouds is great.

Nice and rugged looking. Great job! It is so nice, I'm overlooking the clipping of the water below...

Very well done, creates an effect of being there, standing on a cliff.

Nice shot here and one for the wall. I can kinda make out a face in the center mountain.

Nice image. Love B&W. I'd tone down some of the hotter parts of the rocks and brighten slightly the clouds to give it more drama.
