A shot of the Merced river rocks in the Happy Isles area of Yosemite.

Do you like the color or the black and white better?

Hey Kelly,

I am not too sure about either shot. I like that you were going for something different but I think the bare/dead branches to the left of the tree and behind the rock to the right of the tree makes the shot a bit too busy.

This shot though reminds me of one I saw recently by William Neill I think, but it was a tighter shot of the tree trunk and it's mottled pattern seeming to blend into the mottled pattern of the rock. Do you have a tighter shot? Otherwise if you had a few spare days you could clone out all the dead branches...

Where did you take this at?

Jim

Thanks for the advice Jim. I'll see if I have some tighter shots. I kind of liked the line/texture that the small branches made, but now I see what you mean.

This is just before you cross the bridge over the Merced, before starting up the mist trail.

Well.. from the two, I would prefer color version. I normally like black and white, though.
