p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Death Valley & Bryce Leftovers


I've been going through my files the last month or so looking for soem images that maybe deserve a second chance. The three below are the last of my leftovers for now since spring is here and I'm back out shooting again.

No epic war stories with these, just went out and got the shot. Not much in the way of blending either, maybe the reason I haven't worked on these till now is that they were too easy!

So, here's the last three I had leftover in my files, what do you think? Comments and suggestions always appreciated







Before The Dawn







Red Clouds Over Bryce







Dune Sunrise

A nice set Steve, but they look a bit over-saturated to me...just my opinion, of course
cheers Andrew

Pretty darn good "leftovers"! Thought I agree with Andrew they are heavy on saturation I really like them that way. These would look great printed large.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Upon a second look, I think these are over saturated. Sometimes I just need someone to point it out to make me take a hard look again. I'm going to redo them with a little less intensity. And check my monitor calibration

Fantastic images Steve.
They are all very strong on their own. My personal favorite is the Dunes sunrise.
Regarding calibration. I usually only use calibration when printing my images. For the web, it may be better to turn it off and make sure that your files are converted to sRGB. Like that, most people will see what you see.

Steve, they all are really good images. Love the sky over Bryce and dunes.
Regarding PP: dunes seem over-saturated to me (just the dunes, not the sky.) I would tone them down just a bit because they should show golden, not yellow.
Sky is great but may be needs less sharpening than the rest, to show the softer texture of the clouds.

Nice shots - look like you cooked them in the oven too long. Too much contrast and saturation....

Very nice series, Steve. All are nice, but I really like the amphitheater and sky at Bryce

Thanks the all the comments, kind words and replies. I do appreciate the input on the saturation / contrast and I will try these again with some better post processing. The more I look at it the more I think the Bryce shot in particular has a contrast / color problem. I think the other two just need a touch of toning down.

@Fred - I always save in sRGB, but hadn't thought about checking them with calibration off, thanks!!!

@Sasha - Thanks! I think I'll tone things down a bit and I'll have take a look at that sky too.

@realkuhl - Yup, I burnt my cookies

Were you at both places on the same trip? I was thinking of doing a combined Death Valley/Bryce trip January 2014, and I'm wondering how that would work out.

Two separate trips, but both are very doable in one trip. Probably about 7-8 hours apart.

Nice compositions. I really like #1 and #3. #2 seems too manipulated for my tastes.
