Recently went to west Arizona to check out cholla cactus in the kofa mountain range. Here's a shot I just finished PP on and would love some feedback and critique if something doesn't work for you. Thanks!

Really gorgeous. From the perspective looks like a super wide angle?

Sweet! I love how the clouds mirror the shape of the cholla

Hi Lee, yes, 17mm. Camera was very low and close to the cactus. Several focus stacked shots were taken to get maximum dof on the cactus.

Ha, thanks Jon. I didn't even notice that and my wife mentioned it the other day.

Very nice work here, I think you worked the light really well in this. I like the dramatic look.

Wow! I love the lighting here! At a second look I noticed that the horizon is rather slanted. I presume that this can be corrected in PS.

Thanks Helenica! The slant is the natural grade of the land...

Beautiful capture. The halos around the rocks are a little distracting tho, Ron

Hi Ron, I agree, I think that's an issue with where this was uploaded to, which compressed it a little. Original file doesn't show the halos.

Beautiful shot. Is that tilted or just the lay of the land?

I can see little to improve it.

Hi David, thanks! Yeah, someone else brought that up, but it is just the natural slope of the land from this vantage point. Realizing now that it's a bit confusing. Thanks for your comment!
